Located in Berlin, Germany, translates as the Victory Column. A tall green column, about 69 meters high, with a golden winged statue on the top, of the goddess of Victory.

The Siegessäule sits at a busy 5 way roundabout known as the Großer Stern, the intersection of Straße des 17. Juni, Spreeweg Paul Straße, Altonaer Straße, and Hofjährigerallee. It's west of the Brandenburg Gate, within the Tiergarten. You must walk through a tunnel under the streets to get to it.

It was built from 1871 to 1873 to honor the victories of Otto von Bismarck.

Originally located at the Platz der Republik, it was moved in 1938 by Hitler's order to the current location.
