The Victory Column is a famous monument in Berlin, Germany. It was built in 1864 to celebrate the victory of Prussia in the Prussian War. When the unveiling ceremony was held on September 2, 1873, Prussia was in the Prussian-Austrian War (1866) and Austria and France were defeated in the Franco-Prussian War (1870–71), giving the statue a new meaning.

Located in the center of Berlin, at the center of Tiergarten Park. It was built in 1864 to celebrate Prussia's victory in the war against Denmark. That war opened the door to the north of Prussia and was of great significance to Prussia's transformation into Germany. Above the Romanesque triumphal column, the dazzling golden goddess of victory spread its wings and danced in the wind, symbolizing freedom. The goddess holds a scepter in her left hand and a crown of laurel in her right hand, and lifts it high towards Paris, seeming to be a metaphor for everything.
The German Victory Column, built from 1865 to 1873, was built to commemorate the battle between Germany and Denmark in 1864, the battle with Austria in 1866, and the battle with France from 1870 to 1871. The Victory Column is 67 meters high, and there is an 8-meter-high gilded bronze statue of the Goddess of Victory on the platform, which was made by the sculptor Friedrich Cucker. It sat on the opposite side of the Imperial Fort for 66 years before moving to its current location in Tiergarten Park. During this relocation, it was installed on a drum-shaped column with a colonnade, with a spiral staircase inside, with a total of 285 steps.
