July 9, 2019
Amongst all these tours of the collection, this stands out especially because we take you to the Soviet Memorial in Treptower Park. Framed by the park with its old big trees, you will find here a spacious fenced area. Two huge stone flags flank the entrance and as you go through, a wide meadow opens in front of you. At the other end perched on a pedestal of the "Liberator", a monumental statue of a Red Army soldier. On one arm he carries a small child, in the other hand he holds a sword with which he has smashed a swastika. This memorial commemorates the death of countless Russian soldiers who have lost their lives in the fight against Nazi Germany. And even more: on the white sarcophagus on the edge of the meadow are over 7,000 names. These are the names of those who fell at the Battle of Berlin and were buried here.The starting point for your walk to the monumental memorial is the S-Bahn station Treptower Park, which is served by the S-Bahn lines S41, S42, S8, S85 and S9. From here it is only on the Puschkinalle and then on the edge of the large lawn along the entrance to the memorial. Give yourself a little time here to let the unique, awesome atmosphere affect you.Afterwards it goes again over the Puschkinallee and through the rose garden in the Treptower park to the Spreeufer. With a beautiful view of the Stralau peninsula you can stroll back to the S-Bahn station Treptower Park.
