The¬†Victory Column¬†(Siegess√§ule) is a monument in¬†Tiergarten, Berlin. Designed by¬†Heinrich Strack, after 1864 to commemorate the¬†Prussian¬†victory in the¬†Danish-Prussian War, by the time it was inaugurated on 2 September 1873, Prussia had also defeated Austria in the¬†Austro-Prussian War¬†(1866) and France in the¬†Franco-Prussian War¬†(1870‚Äď71). These later victories inspired the addition of the bronze sculpture of¬†Victoria, designed by¬†Friedrich Drake. Berliners have given the statue the nickname¬†Goldelse, meaning "Golden Lizzy"

In Berlin, the Spree river forms part of a dense network of navigable waterways, many of which are artificial, and which provide a wide choice of routes. Several important commercial harbours can be found on this network while tour boats tour the central section of the Spree and its adjoining waterways on a frequent basis.

Molecule Man is a complex of aluminium sculptures, designed by American artist Jonathan Borofsky, installed on the Spree River in front of the Treptowers. The sculptures consist of three humans leaning towards each other, the bodies of which are filled with hundreds of holes, the holes representative of "the molecules of all human beings coming together to create our existence". The three figures represent the three Berlin districts of Treptow, Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain.

Close to Alexanderplatz, the Fernsehturm (television tower) was constructed between 1965-69 by the government of the German Democratic Republic (GDR). It was intended to be both a symbol of Communist power and of Berlin. It remains the latter today, as it is easily visible throughout the central and some suburban districts of Berlin.With its height of 368 metres it is the tallest structure in Germany, and the second-tallest structure in the EU.

The Reichstag dome is a glass dome, constructed on top of the rebuilt Reichstag building in Berlin. It was designed by architect Norman Foster and built to symbolize the reunification of Germany. Its distinctive appearance has made it a prominent landmark in Berlin.
The dome is open to the public and can be reached by climbing two steel, spiraling ramps that are reminiscent of a double-helix. It symbolizes that the people are above the government, as was not the case during National Socialism.
