Only 3euros to go to the top. There is a small museum inside and you can climb to the top. It’s pretty windy so don’t drop your phone while taking pictures. It’s amazing that you can still see the history with bullet holes on the...More

Located near the Tier Garden, Victory Column is a commemorative piece of architecture. It can be viewed from the park or from the Reichstag building or you can pay a small fee to go up it. This is probably not a must visit and visitors...More

Entrance fee is 3 Euros, cash only. After that, stamina is needed to climb the steps. Two of us started, only I made it to the top. Result: Spectacular views of Berlin. I had to ask a stranger to take a picture of me at...More

This impressive column stands in the middle of the roundabout a few hundred metres from the Brandenburg gate. For a small fee you can gain access to the column and there is a viewing platform, which we didn’t have time to do.

This is an impressive monument. We just looked at it from the bottom. Next time I'll probably walk to the top for the views over the city.

Do not waste your time in the museum at the bottom of the column, take your time and climb the steps for wonderful views across the city, its worth the sweat.

283 steps to the top but worth the climb. Great views across Berlin. A small exhibition in the base of the column is worth a glance, but the most impressive bit for me were the incredible mosaics on the first level.

Not recommended when its windy and your scared of heights!!! The 285 steps are not hugely challenging as there are small areas where you can take a break every now and again! You do get a very good view of the city from the top...More

We purchased at the monument and were able to walk straight up to the ticket counter. We did go in winter though and that may be a different story in summer.

Half an hour at the most, unless you wander through the parkland and get distracted. Watch out for girls in the area trying to get signatures and "donations" for a youth centre - it's a scam.
