Bike Touring Highlight
The victory column with the golden sculpture, also affectionately called "Goldelse", is undoubtedly one of the most famous landmarks of Berlin. If you take the trouble to climb, you have a wonderful panoramic view of the Tiergarten from the viewing platform.

First around it for a few photos! A large multi-lane roundabout denies direct access to the column, but signposted the underground access via a few stairs and a pedestrian tunnel.
If you go there around the pillar, you are astonished at the number of bullet holes - the war has left a few small wounds here!
The column itself offers an exhibition of well-known buildings in Germany & the world and a view over the main base and from the top!
The climb is via a staircase (about 290 narrow steps!), But afterwards you will be rewarded with a breathtaking view!
