The first time I saw this was a rainy, cloudy day, I could see the reflections of the memorial on the ground. It is big, as most Soviet war memorials are.

The Soviet War Memorial is an interesting and impressive monument and with everything written in the Soviet language, it feels very foreign and exotic in an otherwise cosmopolitan European city.

Within the beautiful Tiergarten, and near the Siegessäule (Victory Column), Brandenburg gate and Reichstag Building, this memorial is well worth a moment to visit. As the burial site of fallen Soviet soldiers, it remains a place of pilgrimage for war veterans from the countries of...More

I would say that a visit to this memorial is even better than going to the Brandenburger Gate. The monument is HUGE and there are beautiful neoclassic murals of WW2 battles inspired in greek antiquity with sentences from Stalin. Definitely a piece of history and...More

I visited Soviet War Memorial from East Side Gallery after taking a bus. The park is bit far from from main city but is very accessible from both bus and S-Bahn (S-Treptower Park). I suggested you keep 2-3 hours for this visit. The park is...More

The monument is beautiful, and one of the few WW2 monuments close to the city center that is not related to the holocaust. It is free to visit, and great for pictures. Also, it is close to the Victory Spire, so you can visit both...More

Out of all the memorials we saw, this was one of the most impressive ones. It is one of the central memorials and is not far from the popular tourist attractions. As with all of the memorials in Berlin, it is very moving and humbling...More

This memorial is a short walk along the avenue, directly opposite the back of the Brandenburg gate, and is worth a visit if you have an interest in ll world history. It brings into sharp focus, just how many Russian soldiers were lost in the...More

Indeed, this monument is impressive and pretty close from the Brandebourg gate. It's about one or two minutes walking in the direction of the victory column.

Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through
the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which
lends its name to this well-heeled neighbourhood.
Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city:
upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades
and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone
streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through
little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop
