The Siegessäule is a victory column in Tiergarten, a large park in the center of Berlin. The column is adorned with mosaics and topped with a gilded allegorical statue of Victory.
Tiergarten is a former royal hunting estate that was turned into a park in the 1830s. Five major roads cut through the park and intersect at a large roundabout that is known as the Grosser Stern (Great Star). The Siegessäule stands in the middle of this roundabout.
