Pfaueninsel, Berlin

4.6
#1 of 12 in Nature in Berlin
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.

  • In the cold season is worth a trip to the island. With sunshine and blue skies can walk there beautifully.

  • A popular destination is the Peacock island in the river Havel. The island is characterized by an ancient trees of about 400 trees. The White Castle was built in 1794 by Friedrich Wilhelm II.. The castle is the symbol of the island. A delicate bridge connects two white towers. Half peaks indicate a ruin the island of once used peacocks who live here today also has your name. The dairy farm was designed on the model of a Gothic monastery and the "hunting", is ausBeelitz. A Roman patrician House behind the Park. The "House" was built in 1804.

  • For the umpteenth time, we had a nice stay on the island: a garden landscape with thoughtful landscape concept, ideal for a break from the city. The island is a mixture of landscaped park, jungle-like areas and Tiergarten. Crossings with ferry, no vehicles - da manages excellent switch off from everyday life!

  • Great way to spend a weekend day! Strolling around the park, having BBQ on the green for lunch. A delight! Plus, shortest ferry ride, 2 minutes and 4 euros and you are in the Island. Just take bus 218 from Wannsee S station to Pfaueninsel bus station and than its a 5 min walk to where the ferry leaves.
  • Nice place
  • A happy advertising place. Each axis of the view is fantastic. Rest and recuperation. Dreamy! In particular I would like to thank the always friendly gardeners! You can see that they love their work.

  • The island is beautiful and a must visit! Please beware there is by car, parking (near ferry) is everywhere forbidden by the roadside and is strictly controlled by the Public Affairs Office. Who doesn't matter, please 35 euros for the ticket plan. The route is recommended only with the BVG bus!

  • A really nice place for a trip if you want peace, nature and some rest. In fine weather you can relax on the lawn and hunger there is delicious from the grill or freshly baked cakes. And you can see of course peacocks. :)
