Bike Touring Highlight
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!
