We haven't taken to the top of the column but have just visited the monument. Even if we can't make it to the top climbing 280+ steps, it is still worth visiting the monument. A must see in Berlin for any visitor.

We visited but didnt make the climb- even without the view we enjoyed the vantage point being right in the middle of the park. Certainly made for some great photos

This monument is stunning and was much bigger than we expected. To get to the column you have to walk through an underground tunnel. We didn't feel comfortable with this as it was already getting dark when we were there (December is dark by 4pm)....More

This is a good spot to aim for during a walk in the Tiergarten. It’s pretty impressive and the gold on the statue gleams in the sunlight.

This is an impressive very tall (8.3 meters) monument. Tickets are required in order to take the steps up to see the view.

We purchased at the monument and were able to walk straight up to the ticket counter. We did go in winter though and that may be a different story in summer.

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.
