Parks Berlin (Overview)

Posted by

Berlin is a very green city. Besides forests and meadows on the outskirts, there are many parks in the city. Some are very large. About 5 are larger than 1 km², about 65 larger than 0.1 km² (19 hectares). It is difficult to say how many city parks there are in Berlin in total. It depends on which small green spaces you count as parks.

Berliners love their parks. When the weather is good, tens of thousands of residents are out and about in the city parks. Many come to go for a walk or a bike ride. Some lie in the sun on a lawn. Others have a picnic, and barbecues are also very popular in Berlin’s city parks.

Which park is the most beautiful park in Berlin is of course debatable. From our point of view it is the Britzer Garten in the south of Berlin. The park was built for the Federal Garden Show in 1985. It is one of the few parks in Berlin that charges an entrance fee, but only a maximum of 3 Euros. >>> More info

In our opinion, the most beautiful park in the east of Berlin is the large Treptower Park on the Spree. Despite its enormous size, the lawns are full of people on sunny days. >>> More info

The highest hill in a park in Berlin is probably the Kreuzberg in the Viktoriapark. Berlin is flat, even the Kreuzberg is just a hill. The waterfall on the slope of the Kreuzberg is great. >>> More info
