  Der Siegsaeule
by dlandt

Although the wars this column commemorates pale in comparison to those which came later, they were extremely important in their time. The cannon lining the outside were captured in the three wars that built Prussia into a great power and led to the unification of Germany; The Austro-Prussian War, The Prussian-Danish War, and the Franco-Prussian War. For a few cents you can enter the building and look at a mosaic, then climb up and see out over the city for the typical panorama view. The true interest in this monument however, is that it deals with some of the more obscure aspects of Prussian History. (Obscure at least to everyone but the Danes.)
