Tiergarten & Victory Angel
The Victory Angel, made from and decorated by
captured French cannons in the late 1800's. It used to be in another part of
Berlin and was moved by the Nazis in 1939 to its current location at the
visual center of the city.
Here are some cool details from the
entrance to the Victory Angel.
These two statues sit across the path
from each other and depict a fox hunt.

lions across a bit of lake in the Tiergarten
And the collection of refitted gas lamps at
the edge of the park. I'm always amazed at the gorgeous detailed ironwork
all over this city, most of it created in the 1800's. Notice it on the
railing behind the lamp as well.
