Actually...the "quadriga" is this statue:



Course, I could be wrong and they could all be a part of the same thing.

that's the one on top of the brandenburg gate, just down the road from the angel statue. you can see this one in the one video! :-)

the quadriga is in the "stay" video, but only for a few frames. it is also in the 'one' video where the guys cross dress.

According to this site, it's called the Angel of Victory.

yep, it is part of the 'victory column', kind of a roundabout in the middle of the road (that you can see bono falling on in the video). the statue itself is much bigger in person than it looks on film! there are carvings of horses and people around the base that are just amazing to see. and that is not even mentioning the missing chunks from bullets and bombs. it is quite a sight to see. what is cool too is all the way up the spiral staircase there are scribbles from U2 fans from all over the world. :-)

I want to say that the statue is either on the Strasse des 17 Juni, or on Unter den Linden. My memory is real foggy, but I recall that it is not too far from Brandenburger Tor, and that the Reichstag is in the vicinity. The Berlin Wall spanned not too far away from it also. It's been 5 years since I was last in Berlin though.
