Tiergarten#7 in Best Things To Do in Berlin
Price & Hours
The expansive Tiergarten sprawls 519 acres from central Berlin westward and attracts visitors looking for respite from the city's clamor. The name of the park translates to "Animal Garden," as it served as a hunting ground for select Germans during the late 17th century.
Nowadays, visitors can still get a glimpse of animals by visiting Zoologischer Garten (the Berlin Zoo) located within the park. You can also stroll, jog or bike through the most popular green space in Berlin. On the other hand, many travelers enjoy the Tiergarten more for its two biergartens. The Tiergarten also houses the Victory Column, which was erected in 1873 to commemorate Prussia's victory in the Franco-German War. Visitors can climb to the top of this monument to see great views of Berlin.
Access the park off the Tiergarten S-Bahn station or the Brandenburger Tor U-Bahn station. Admission to the park is free, and it's open 24 hours a day.
