  Victory Column at Tiergarten Park
by Frisbeeace

The Tiergarten is a huge park that covers 2 miles in between Bahnhof and the Brandenburg Gate. This 150 hectare area was once the royal hunting grounds.

The Victory Column was built to conmemorate the Prusian defeat of France in 1870. It was originally installed at the Reichstag and moved to the Tiergarten by Hitler in 1938.

For 2.20 euros you can climb its 285 steps.
