The high for Berlin conditions hill measures 66.1 meters - thus the former vineyard is more than half as high as the highest, natural point of the capital (Great Müggelberg 114.7m). The Kreuzberg is home to the cast-iron national monument on its "summit", commemorating the wars of liberation, such as the battle of Waterloo.The Kreuzberg lies in the midst of the artificially created, since 1888, idyllic Victoria Park. This is especially due to its 24-meter high waterfall, which is modeled on the Zackelfall in Krkonose, its special charm. Furthermore, the park offers winding paths, a large playground, many green areas for lounging and various catering options (X-Berg-Hütte & Golghata).The easiest way to reach this highlight is by bus 140, Katzbachstr./Kreuzbergstraße (or Monumentenstraße), which offers an ideal starting point at the foot of the Victoria Park.
