Where : Tiergarten
Discovering Tiergarten, Berlin
Our hotel was a 20 minute walk from the Tiergarten district. It's basically a huge urban park full of nature, a nice lake, historical art, statues and cafés.
We entered the park at one extremity and made our way walking all the way to the Brandenburg Gate. Simply note that it's quite a walk, especially if you plan to stop along the way !
What is there to see ?
There's also a Zoo, we heard the animals as we walked along the path. First we explored the park and the wildlife, then we made our way to the famous Victory Column. It's a large historical monument located just around a traffic circle. It appears they sell tickets for a visit and a ride to the top for a view of Berlin city. We had our eyesight on the Jewish Memorial and the Brandenburg Gate so we didn’t get the ticket.
There are some monuments in the avenue that reminds the World War II and museums around if you want to check it out.
Do we recommend?
Yes, it’s a beautiful central area and it's great to walk around the park to get some peaceful time in the nature of Berlin.
