Take a tour of Berlin Victory Column in Germany -- part of the World's Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats. On the grounds of Berlin, stands tall a monument of historical significance for the German nation. This monument was erected to memorialize the triumph of victorious Prussia over Denmark in 1864. The original design did not have the sculpture of Victoria, made of bronze, on top of the column. It was added in the initial plans and structure as a symbol of honor for Prussia's victories over the Austrian Empire and France. Familiarly called as ''Golden Else'', Friedrich Drake laid down the artwork for this statue of the Victory Goddess. The gorgeous mosaic reliefs present in the monument showcase depictions from the 3 wars fought on the German soil.
The Victory Column is a monument in Berlin, Germany. Designed by Heinrich Strack, after 1864 to commemorate the Prussian victory in the Danish-Prussian War, by the time it was inaugurated on 2 September 1873, Prussia had also defeated Austria in the Austro-Prussian War (1866) and France in the Franco-Prussian War (1870–71), giving the statue a new purpose. Different from the original plans, these later victories in the so-called unification wars inspired the addition of the bronze sculpture of Victoria, 8.3 metres high and weighing 35 tonnes, designed by Friedrich Drake. Berliners have given the statue the nickname Goldelse, meaning something like "Golden Lizzy". The Victory Column is a major tourist attraction in the city of Berlin and opens daily: 9:30 a.m. – 6:30 p.m. (April – October)...

RE-PUBLISHED (original date: August 16, 2012) -- http://MovingPostcard.com -- Siegessäule (Victory Column) and especially the "Viktoria Statue" on top, which Berliners like to call Goldelse is one of the outstanding landmarks in Berlin and should be on everyone's must-see list. It's located inside Tiergarten and was built between 1864 and 1873 based on a design by Heinrich Strack. Of course, it's about winning wars. I won't indulge. The reason I will always be so fond of the Siegessaeule and especially the Viktoria is the film Wings of Desire by Wim Wenders, my favorite film. Now that I have finally made it up to the top of the column, I was able to finally see what the angel saw: Der Himmel Uber Berlin. As much as the view was amazing, I doubt I'll ever make it up there again. My mild...

The Berlin Victory Column was built between 1864 and 1873. It was a memorial in honor of three victorious wars of Germany: against Denmark 1864, against Austria 1866 and against France 1870 and 1871. The column was originally situated at the German "Square of the Republic" ("Platz der Republik"), but 1938 and 1939, it was finally transferred to its recent site at the "Berlin Tiergarten". It has a highness of about 66.89 m and is divided into four solid blocks consisting of sandstone and it bears in the lower three blocks 60 gold-plated gun barrels, which were seized during these three wars. The gilded bronze sculpture of the goddess of victory, named Victoria, referring to the Roman mythology, was created by Friedrich Drake (1805-1882). The Victory Column was officially opened 1873.
