#1 of 61 in Parks in Berlin
Covering more than 210 hectares (520 acres) through the center of the city, Großer Tiergarten is one of Germany's largest urban parks. Its beginnings trace back to the 16th century, when the area was designated as a royal hunting zone. Later, as the city expanded and the hunting grounds shrank, the park became a popular relaxation area for the general public. Today, the Spree river and a number of important architectural landmarks border the sprawling park grounds. Look in the middle of the park for a large square with a tall column that the locals the Great Star. It was placed here in 1864 to celebrate Prussia's victory over Denmark. Stop by the park to take a stroll, picnic, cycle, jog, or play soccer with the local crowd.

  • While traveling through Europe with friends, we didn't have a place to spend a night in Berlin. So we came across this calm park and had a lovely night under the stars. No homeless people or noise pollution. In the morning we had a breakfast next to people having a morning run. Also! There are plenty of rabbits around there. And they don't even hide, although they don't let themselves to pet
  • Interesting soviet memorial. Behind it there is a place with informational signs that step you through the history of this place from the end of WWII to the present day- which is available in English and accompanied by many photos. The memorial itself is impressive, and it is also a great location to learn a bit about the history of that location.
