Treptower Park, Berlin

4.6
#3 of 34 in Parks in Berlin
Nature / Park
At Treptower Park, you can walk across the historic Abbey Bridge. On the other side housed in an old observatory, you'll find the giant, refracting telescope, which is 130 metric tons (143.3 tons). Before you cross, though, take time to admire this side of the river. The park is one of Germany's first recreation areas specifically designed for public use. The 4 km (2.5 mi) pathway near the riverbank is home to restaurants and cafes. You'll also find the famous Soviet war memorial created in 1949. Hop on one of the boat tours if you'd like a relaxing ride around the area. Plan your Treptower Park visit and explore what else you can see and do in Berlin using our Berlin itinerary builder.

Where to stay in Berlin

The Kreuzberg neighborhood near the Oberbaumbrüke bridge is central and full of Berlin icons: street art, a piece of the Berlin Wall, the East Side Gallery, and a proliferation of cafes. Friedrichshain is another option with a hip vibe due to the students who congregate at its cafes and galleries. Consider Mitte as a historic home base. Mitte is the area where almost all of Berlin's well-known buildings are located, and it is within walking distance of Alexanderplatz. For a peaceful residential area, try Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf where the streets are lined with boutiques and quiet coffee shops.

  • Built by the Russians as a monument to its soldiers lost in WWII while fighting Germany, this park is quiet and stately. The stone displays have interesting depictions and the granite statues are impr...  more »
  • Easily accessible via public transportation, although we walked, the monument is grand in its scale, and beautiful to behold. The surrounding park and swimming lake are also beautiful. Recommended.  more »

  • Good area for walking and relaxing on the grass. It's quite empty in terms of cafes/bars/restaurants. And if you manage to find something - it's sausages and fast-food.
  • Russian memorial is calm and good place. You can reach via S bahn or Bus. Bit outside Berlin but worth visiting.
  • It's an excellent historical garden. You can feel the smell of the WW2 because of the atmosphere of the garden. You definitely must go there while visiting Berlin!
  • Beautiful park running along the Spree river. I hopped off at one S station and walked across the park to the next. It was a warm day so the park was full of people and vendors. Hard to find a washroom so go before!
  • Really nice park in Berlin, we can enjoy Spree and park, it has a small island in the Spree, and you can rent a boat here to enjoy Spree. Near to abandoned Amusement Park.
