A good column representing German friezes and architecture. ...a splendid sample. It can be access from an underground walkway across the main intersection. The figures on top still shines, golden and alive...Make sure you read the history written on the wall....

It's much cheaper than visiting fernsehturm, but you can see just as much of berlin in my opinion. You will have to be fit enough to climb the stairs as there is plenty of them, bu the view at the top is amazing. From the sprawilng green space of Tiergarten, you can see well past Berlin Tegel airport on a... More

I discovered the statue during a night walk at Festival Of Lights. The Victory Angel is impressive,however the gold yellow is quite to glowy. I recommend you climb. The view is worth the effort. Aprox 3EURO, 10-15 min climb. The panorama is spectacular, even more on a partially cloudy day.

You need to be a bit fit to climb up this attraction but the effort is worth it. It provides a great view of the area and across Berlin. It's an interesting piece of history in its own right. Cheap to enter at 3 Euros.

If you don't mind climbing 286 steps, aren't averse to a narrowish ledge at the top (80cm wide, fully fenced) and like great views, then this is an attraction for you. No/ negligible queues to get in, just a few euros to gain access and some interesting displays about the column's history around the bottom. All in all, a more... More

Great photo op. Small exhibit inside the base of the monument. You can climb the stairs to the top but it is pretty grueling to get up there. Observation deck is very small and crowded. Nice view of Berlin at top.

I was wrong took me somewhere between 1 and a half hours to 2 hours take the bus to get there unless you fancy a... More

From the top of the column (after climbing quite a few stairs!) - you can get a great view of the city. It is quite cramped but worth it nonetheless. It was €3 each, which isn't too bad.

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighbourhood Profile
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighbourhood. Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city: upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theatres close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
