Siegessäule is the true native German name of this world famous landmark! Sieg: meaning ‘Victory’ and Säule when translated means ‘Column’. .
This was cleaverly designed by Heinrich Strack circa 1846 to commemorate the victory of the Danish-Prussian war, however by inauguration 1873 actually Prussia had defeated the Austrians and Germans in the Austrian-Prussian war in 1866... .
Just one of many factoids I had learnt whilst fully exploring this amazing experience that is The Victory Column. .
Few years back I’d visited this city with old School pals but sadly the snow and ice didn’t enable us to enter, this time the weather was perfect! .
Hope you like the scenes as sunsets within the ‘F*ck Love’ Locked picture I took, then fell into near darkness as can be seen in my video swipe left to right! #instaview#myberlin#amazingexperience#visitingfamily#architecture#oneofmyfavouritecities#globetrotter#loveberlin#autumn#fall#coloursofnature #🍂🍁
