The Victory Column was originally built on the Königsplatz in front of the Reichstag (today's Republic Square) from 1864 to 1873 according to the plans of Heinrich Strack. The reason for the edification was the victory of Prussia in the German-Danish War in 1864. Within a few years two further victorious wars were added, the German War of 1866 against Austria and the German-French War of 1870/1871. These three victories - today called unit wars - are reminiscent of the three original segments, which was a bronze sculpture placed. At the bronze reliefs and mosaic pictures in the colonnade, you can follow the path to founding the German Reich.
During National Socialism, the Victory Column was raised by a fourth drum, giving it a total height of 67 meters. In 1938/39, the monument was moved 1.6 km to the west for the transformation of the "Reich capital Germania" - to the Great Star in the middle of the Tiergarten, where it still stands today, the Siegessäule or "Goldelse", like the Berliners call them something disrespectful as well.
After surviving the war largely unscathed, the Victory Column was restored in the mid-eighties and is now a listed building.
