  Victory Column
by Jarra

The Victory Column was erected at the request of Kaiser Wilhelm I to commemorate Prussia`s victory over France and Denmark. The huge, gold-covered statue of the goddess of victory sttod in front of the Reichtag until 1938. Those who brave the 285 steps that spiral up the column are rewarded with a wonderful view over the Tiergarten and much of Berlin.
