#1 of 61 in Parks in Berlin
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.

  • A perfect place to walk, cycle, run or just sit down and relax. This is a nice snippet of nature in the bustling city of Berlin. The park is well kept, clean and tidy and has plenty of sculptures and interesting works to admire as you travel through. It's definitely worth a visit if you're close by.
  • It's a beautiful garden with so much nature surrounding the area. If you need a place to sit down and have a picnic at spring or summer time, find a great spot in the grass and enjoy yourself.
