Viktoriapark is a lovely park resting on a 66-metre hill and crowned with a national monument. Flowing downhill from the base of the monument is a soothing man-made waterfall replicating a natural waterfall from the Krkonoše mountains along Poland Czech Republic border.

Climbing the stairs to the base of the monument affords one of the finest views across the city available for free from anywhere in Berlin. On a fair day, you can see the iconic Fernsehturm TV Tower. This is also a perfect spot to enjoy the sunset.

A wide grass space near the monument is good for relaxing, tossing a ball or playing Frisbee.

Other park amenities include a children's playground, two restaurants and a beer garden.

History

During the 18th century, the hill on which Viktoriapark sits was a vineyard sometimes referred to as Runder Weinberg meaning Round Vineyard. To this day, there are still two small vineyards neighbouring the park.

In 1818 they placed a foundation on top of the hill in preparation for the construction of a national memorial. In 1821 a cast-iron monument symbolizing victory over Napoleon Bonaparte and freedom from French domination was dedicated by King Friedreich Wilhelm III of Prussia.

In 1888, Kaiser Friedrich III, called for the area surrounding the monument to be improved and the man-made waterfall conceived by the director of parks and gardens, Hermann Mächtig, was added.

The park opened in 1894, named in honour of Kaiser Friedrich III’s English wife, Victoria.

Viktoriapark park is a short walk from U-Bhf Platz der Luftbrücke Station.
