    You're welcome to get naked here :)

    Tiergarten is Berlin's biggest park and it's located right smack in the center of the city. But in true German fashion, it's also a very German-park. Which means you'll find plenty of nude sunbathers here. There are some areas of the park where entire families are in the nude, but in one corner near the park's central monument (the obelisk Victory Column), there's an area where many a gay man spends some time naked sunbathing. It's called FKK and it's nothing to be ashamed of!

    The sprawling Tiergarten is a must-see for all visitors to Berlin. More than just a destination to take a serene stroll or bike ride, it's also an ideal spot for riding boats on a lake, having coffee or a beer at the scenic Cafe am Neuen See, or viewing the ornate buildings of the Diplomatic Quarter.

    A pleasant park with some pleasant walks right in the centre of Berlin. There are supposedly good views from the top of the Winged Victory Column.

    A massive and beautiful public park in the centre of Berlin; take some time to wander through the many paths but it's worth it. If it is summertime, have a picnic lunch in the sunshine. It's very easy, when you're deep in the centre of the park, to forget you're in the metropolis.

    Note that Tiergarten is not just the name of the massive, sprawling park, but also an area of Berlin north of Schöneberg. After the war, while the city was divided and the cultural Museum Island was in East Berlin, the west built several cultural institutions on the site that remain today.

    The Tiergarten is a beautiful, elegant park overflowing with rich, lush vegetation and canopy-like trees. Home to the Soviet War Memorial, you meander through peaceful greenery before snapping harshly back to reality as you stand in front of a formidable, towering stone statue that stands for a much more serious issue. The Tiergarten was devastated during World War II, but was lovingly replanted quickly thereafter.

    An essential visit for any tourist, Tiergarten is Berlin's largest inner city park. You can visit Brandenburg Gate, walk down through the park to the Victory Column at Grosser Stern, through the English Gardens and get a soya latte at Café am Neuen See beside the lake Neuer See.

    Very nice and big garden in the middle of city center! You can walk it starting from Brandenburg gate or from Parliament (Reichstad) heading to Potzdamer platz or to the zoo. Preferable at summer...

    Great place to rest during your walking routes. If you plan to stop and rest some place, grab something to eat on your way and take your break under the trees.

    Between Potsdamer Platz and the government district, the Brandenburg Gate and Zoo beats the green heart of Berlin. At the Berlin city map has three kilometers wide and one kilometer deep zoo as an inner-city island. There is jogged, skated, played soccer, took a walk, lying in the sun or grilled.

    End of the 17th Century Elector Friedrich III. Create a former hunting ground of the "pleasure park for the people." Over time, the park was redesigned by several models, including the Tiergarten 1833-1838 transformed by the famous landscape architect Peter Joseph Lenne in an English national park.

    The zoo suffered during the Second World War again major damage. Especially the last year of the war and the fighting in the center of Berlin were disastrous for the park. After the war the park was almost completely denuded of trees by firewood seekers Berliners. The reforestation of the park began in 1949 and could then be carried out almost exclusively with tree donations from other German cities.

    Historic places in southern zoo
    But it's not only trees, shrubs and green spaces that define the face of the 200-acre zoo. Many attractions such as thinking and monuments, bridges, the Victory Column, the Federal President, the House of World Cultures and the English Garden invite you to make one days walk through the park. The term English garden around a pond, provides insight into the English landscape architecture and is now one of the most beautiful corners of the zoo.

    In the southern Tiergarten are the main attractions of the new lake, the island of Luis and the German Resistance Memorial Center. So remember e.g. the reminder and monuments of Karl Liebknecht and Rosa Luxembourg in the southwestern part of the zoo to the founders of the Communist Party, who were murdered in January 1919 after the failure of the Spartacus revolt.

    In the northern Tiergarten especially the Federal President, the English Garden, the House of World Cultures, the Carillon and the Soviet War Memorial are worth visiting.

    What a beautiful park! So part of the city, yet so un-explored. We wandered through the park for a couple hours starting at the far end and walking in to the gate.

    It was well worth the walk... the quietness of the park and the gravity of its location was intense and yet relaxing. Lots of places to stop and look, sit, talk... if the weather was warmer we'd have had a picnic lunch.

    In our case we wanted to go from the Zoological Gardens to the Siegessäule and thought to walk it. It was well worth the effort because some of my favorite pictures from our trip were captured here.

    Berlin city centre's great green lung. Go for a stroll, collect your thoughts and inspect the Siegessäule (Victory Column) up close.

Description

Stretching from the Brandenburg Gate in the east to Zoo Station in the west, Tiergarten park is one of Europe's largest and most beautiful inner-city parks. Originally conceived as a hunting ground for Prussian kings, the Tiergarten was transformed into an romantic landscape garden in the early 18th Century by Peter Joseph Lenne, who designed a series of winding paths, lakes, bridges, sculptures ... read more
and flower beds. The park was devastated in the Second World War and during subsequent winters. Replanted in the 1950s, the Tiergarten is now as beautiful as it ever was and very popular with locals and visitors alike.
