Definitely worth the in-the-end-rather-modest effort to get to Treptower Park. Huge, moving monument to the Soviet victory over the Germans in the Great Patriotic War (WWII). A reminder of the historical fact that 26 million Soviet citizens sacrificed their lives to rid the world of the fascist menace. Beautifully mantained. We loved it.

Do not overlook this site. It is daunting in size and the emotions it evokes. It is easy to skip this or do a "drive by"but you will miss a great opportunity.

This is 2nd major Soviet War memorial in Berlin (others being in Tiergarten and Pankow). The monument consistd of iconic sculpture of a soldier holding a child. Leading to the monuments are stone sarcophagi, depicting various scenes from the war: bombing of Soviet cities, citizens' war efforts, Moscow November 1941 parade, Alexander Matrosov's sacrifice, the rejoicing of the victory and mourning of the fallen. The sarcophagi contain Stalin's quotes in Russian and German.
Treptower Park offers shady places to relax, picnic, or workout. There are many food places nearby. In addition, there is a short walk from the Monument/Treptower Park to the nearby funky Molecule Men art piece.
Prepare to spend a few hours exploring the monument and enjoying the Park. The best way to reach it from the center would be via S9.

If you appreciate Soviet Realism (or its Western counterparts, like New York's Rockefeller Center) or if you're keen on mid-20th Century history, this memorial park is a must. Granted, it's difficult to reach for anyone using public transportation -- close to an hour on the U6 and the M165 or 265 bus from the area around Brandenburg Gate. But it's worth the trouble, and huge, leafy Treptow Park, which surrounds the memorial, is a lovely example of urban green space -- one of the reasons Berlin's air is so clean. The burying ground for c. 5,000 soldiers who died taking Berlin from the Nazis, the memorial mall is flanked by bas relief slabs (the rectangular bits to the left of the TripAdvisor photo above) depicting heroic actions of Soviet military and civilians. Each displays a quote (in Russian) from Stalin, chiseled in gold. Even if you don't read the language, if you can sound out the Cyrillic alphabet, you'll notice the names of countries included in the Soviet Union -- including Ukraine. It prompted a poignant thought for the people dying today, on both sides.

As I am - for my travel guides BertaBerlin - always looking for the hidden gems in Berlin, I visited this place. The largest Soviet memorial in Berlin is actually a war cemetery, with 5.000 soldiers buried there. Visitors at Treptower Park can observe all main elements of the Soviet style: the figure of the mother, who sent her sons to the war, as well memorial slabs and frescos that depict the course of the war, and not forgetting the Stalin quotations. The picture is completed by the imposing figure on top of the mausoleum: a soldier carrying a rescued German child. The soldier puts the sword on the ground, which symbolizes the end of war.

While Berliners use this great park on a daily basis for jogging, dog walking,... etc, tourists don't go often that far as it's pretty much off the beaten track. However, there are some attractions not that far from here, such the Molecul man water instalation on Spree and the Oberbaum bridge with the East side gallery.
But, the Soviet memorial in Treptower is a very good reason to come here for tourists, at least those interested in WWII.
The memorial is only a 15 min walk from the S Bahn Treptower station. Two massive granite slabs depicting a battle mark the entrance and a long lawn takes you to enormous Soviet soldier on a pedestal, beneath whom is a small chapel. The soldier holds a child in one hand and breaks the swastika with his sword in the other.
This is the biggest Soviet memorial in Berlin, the other one is in the very center, in Tiergarten close to the Brandenburg gate. Both are dedicated to 80.000 Soviet victims in the Berlin battle - here are burried around 7.000 and around 2.000 in the Tiergarten.

Soviet Union propaganda style, but impressive. All those horrible Stalin quotes make you think of our common history.

Monument for the soviet solders lost. Well taken care of and lots of Stalin quotes. Dormant in the winter but vegetation should be beautiful in the spring

Definitely worth a visit to see this monument to the sacrifices of the soviet army in the liberation of Germany. The two tanks flanking the memorial are from the period and when I visited there were plenty of Russians who came to pay respects.
