This is not a must in Berlin however it's worth a visit. The ticket to get to the top is little bit overpriced but this is tourism.

The Victory Column has its place in Prussian German history and is a nice monument with the golden Victoria sitting atop that you can be seen from a long distance. It's a long walk to this monument through the Tiergarten but there are other things...More

Cheap tickets but lots of steps and views only of one side of Berlin. Probably too far out to get real value - would recommend viewing from outside and going up TV tower instead for views over Berlin

The cost and the climb are worth it. It's not for the faint hearted. A lot of steps. There are areas to have a breather at. The views are amazing. You can see the Brandenburg Gate from this monument. There are tunnels under the road...More

The tower was not only built to be a war memorial celebrating a few wars Prussia had fought in the 1860s .. but since those wars led to the birth of the German Empire it was also the de-facto first national imperial monument. If you...More

Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through
the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which
lends its name to this well-heeled neighbourhood.
Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city:
upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades
and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone
streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through
little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop

Half an hour at the most, unless you wander through the parkland and get distracted. Watch out for girls in the area trying to get signatures and "donations" for a youth centre - it's a scam.
