Create an itinerary including Großer Tiergarten
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.

  • The extension of Tiergarten includes Victory Column and some very nice art work. On other side it is bound by canal. It has a very nice cafe too. Green and with all amenities it is perfect place for day picnic and morning walk. On a sunny day people can be seen relaxing and enjoying sun.
  • Great park with both gravel and paved trails. Beautiful gardens and statues scattered about the park and close to many tourist attractions. Always good to bring a rain jacket.
  • Incredible monument, only a few euros to get in to see a very interesting exhibition with lots of models. Brutal climb to the top but amazing views of this fantastic city. An absolute must to visit. Nice cafe nearby for a cold beer or coffee 👌🏻
  • Beautiful park with a lot of trees and water inside. You can walk through it or ride it with a bike, it is always pleasure to see that kind of places and all this nature inside the city.
  • This vast green space is absolutely gorgeous. Woodland areas and park areas stretch for acres and acres, a beautiful spot for an extended walk on a sunny day.
