What are the best parks in Berlin

While the architecture of the city is renowned, Berlin parks and squares are not to be underestimated.  As expected, you’ll find touches of old and new Berlin, from the leftover reminders of the wall in Mauerpark to the views across to Brandenburg Gate that can be enjoyed from Tiergarten. Any visit to Berlin should include a walk through Tiergarten, the city’s answer to New York City’s Central Park. Relax on the grass in the sunshine, have a picnic, or enjoy some of the free events hosted in one of Berlin’s parks and piazzas.

Mauerpark

Part of the border strip of the Berlin Wall until 1989, Mauerpark officially became a public park in 1994. Take a walk along the route where the wall used to be, relax on the grass and soak up the atmosphere, or find a bargain in the flea market. Every Sunday, you'll find Mauerpark karaoke taking place in the amphitheatre, which is definitely worth a look (and maybe worth a listen!).

Gendarmenmarkt

Regarded by many as the most beautiful square in Berlin, Gendarmenmarkt is a stunning space. Flanked by two church buildings with gorgeous towers, as well as a concert venue, the architecture is a must-see. During the summer, it's home to Classic Open Air, an orchestral concert series. In winter, the square is blanketed by snow and houses a Christmas market worth visiting.

Tiergarten

Consider Tiergarten Park the green heart of the city and one of the most popular of Berlin's parks. Sprawled across 210ha, Tiergarten is a green place filled with open spaces and tree-lined pathways. Only a few minutes from the Brandenburg Gate and Zoological Garden, Tiergarten hosts a combination of green spaces, cultural sites, picnic spots, and sweet cafes.

The rose garden and rowboats/pedal boats will definitely remind you that you're in Europe, not to mention the number of cyclists you'll see cutting through the park.

A botanical garden in the heart of Berlin, Botanischer Garten is truly impressive. In a walk, you can take in some of the most amazing forestry, alps and tropical rainforests – all without leaving the park! If you feel like escaping the energy of the city for something a little more quiet, Botanischer Garten is definitely a great place to experience.
