Pfaueninsel, Berlin

(4.6/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Situated along the River Havel and only accessible by a small ferry, the nature reserve of Pfaueninsel makes up part of the World Heritage Site of the Palaces and Parks of Potsdam and Berlin. The island, named after the free-roaming peacocks that live here, feels a world away from Germany's bustling capital. Besides its colorful feathered residents, the park is home to a number of other attractions, including a striking white medieval-style palace built by Friedrich Wilhelm II from 1794 to 1797. Admire the architecture and wander the grounds, where you can encounter a range of fauna alongside the peacocks. Snack shacks are located near the ferry drop-off. Plan your visit to Pfaueninsel and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Berlin vacation planner.

  • A great family trip! We have parked on the S-Bahn Wannsee. Then we went with an oldtimer bus 218 to the last station cocktail island. Already, the old bus ride was a highlight! The buses run every 30 minutes and the last leaves from 20.04. It was nice to contemplate the free-range peacocks. Also the picnic on the berth was very. For family outings and friends meet a perfect place! Do not smoke as info on the island! Dogs are not permitted with also!
