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.

  • Lovely shaded walks through woodland, as well as some grassy picnic spots. A lovely place to stroll on a hot day.

  • The Park is full of beautiful trees and open spaces. It is great for nature enthusiasts. You can see wild animals from birds of prey roosting in the trees or hunting, to large terrapins that inhabit one of the small lakes .
  • Shady, tree-lined paths through the woods... in the middle of the city. It's beautiful. Walk along the water as much as possible. The rabbits on the west side of the park were almost tame this year (2021).
