Tiergarten Park is a huge park (the largest park in Berlin) and it can be ideal for a nice picnic during the summer months.

It has several paths, it’s green everywhere of course with many lakes, ponds, weird trees and hidden corners. We just walked around with no direction for some time and we loved the tranquility of the park. It must be an oasis for the locals that want to escape the craziness of the city. There some big alleys but I loved the small paths where nobody was except (from time to time) a jogger that was focused on his training.

It was turned into a park during the 18th century(by Peter J. Lenne in 1830), before it was just the hunting grounds of Prussian royal family, Tiergarten means animal garden anyway. June 17th avenue splits the park in the middle as it runs from Brandenburg Gate to Reichstag.

Address: center of the city
Directions: Zoo at the west end of the park or Potsdamerplatz at the east end of the park
