Victory Column (Berlin)

The Victory Column at the Großer Stern is one of the best-known landmarks in Berlin. From the base it has a height of 69 meters.

It was designed by Johann Heinrich Strack. The monument was finished in 1873. It honors the Prussia victories over Denmark, Austria, and France in 1864, 1866 and 1870/71. The monument shaft therefore is covered with gilded gun barrels.

The golden figure at the top of the column carries the name Victoria, but is frequently called “Goldelse” by the people of Berlin. There are nearly 300 steps to reach the top.
