In the center of the Tiergarten at the end of Unter den Linden and an intersection with five other streets, stands the Siegessaule, or Victory Column, built to commemorate the German victory over Denmark in 1864, Austria in 1866, and France in 1870 and 1871. Victories in that part of the world are short-lived, as is evidenced by the damage the column has sustained in subsequent wars. Originally, it stood in front of the Reichstag, but Hitler moved it to its present location in 1938. The goddess Viktoria stands atop the Victory Column (seems appropriate). The column is 61m high and is supposed to have great views of the city. It was closed every time I walked over there.
