Yesterday I shared some photos of the Tiergarten, the largest park in Berlin, Germany. In the middle of the park you can find the Siegessaule. It’s easy to find since the Victory Column is over 200 feet (62 meters). The column commemorates the 1864 Prussian victory against Denmark. Two more victories, against Austria in 1866 and against France in 1871, were marked by adding a statue of the goddess Victoria. She weighs 35 tons. If you are adventurous, you can climb to the top. There was an entrance fee, but I can’t remember how much. I couldn’t pass up the opportunity since I heard the views were wonderful. They were. Also, there is beautiful artwork to see. Below you will find some of the photos I took.
