Berlin Close-

up of Viktoria statue on the Victory Column

Mega-zoom image of Viktoria, the statue that stands atop the Victory Column (die Siegessäule) in Berlin. The gold-covered statue is one of Berlin's best-loved monuments and has featured in films including Wings of Desire by Wim Wenders and videos by U2. Berliners also refer to the statue as Gold-Else because of her covering of gold leaf.


It's amazing to see the statue up close, the viewpoint is on the ground around 150 feet (50 metres) below.
