This memorial on the Kreuzberg in the Viktoriapark, designed by Karl Friedrich Schinkel, commemorates 12 battles in the Napoleonic Wars where the Prussian and Russian forces coalition was successful. The imposing cast-iron memorial is adorned with 12-figure sculptures commemorating the military campaign's 12 battles. The monument stands on top of the hill in Viktoria Park in the Kreuzberg, one of the most diverse neighborhoods in Berlin. There is access to public transport from the U6 line, either from Mehringdamm station or from Platz der Luftbruecke. The memorial is easy to find; climb up the hill until you get to the top. You can rise to the base of the tower for beautiful views of the rest of the city, especially in the fall and winter months when the leaves have fallen. The memorial is open to the public throughout the year and can serve as a sweet resting spot after walking up the hill.
