A Day in Berlin’s Green Southeast

Morning

Begin your tour of Berlin’s Southeast at Alexanderplatz. Sights in this area are not always near each other, so taking the S-Bahn from here is recommended.

First, take S-Bahn line S3 to Karlshorst, where you can visit the Deutsch-Russisches Museum . From here it is not far to the Stasi-Museum Normannenstraße (see Gedenkstätte Normannenstraße) – return to S-Bahn station Ostkreuz, then take S-Bahn line S4 and U-Bahn line U5 to Magdalenenstraße. After visiting all these museums you could recover outdoors. Take U-Bahn line U5 to Tierpark Friedrichsfelde, where you can visit both the zoological garden and Friedrichsfelde Palace.

Afternoon

Spend the afternoon making an excursion to Köpenick. Take S-Bahn line S3 to Köpenick, and enjoy a typically German meal in the Ratskeller , the town hall cellar. Afterwards explore Köpenick Old Town. The centre of the old fishing village is especially worth a visit. There are many cafés near Köpenicker Schloss , where you could stop for a coffee and a piece of cake, for example Café Kietz . Continue your journey by S-Bahn to Friedrichshagen, the access point for Großer Müggelsee. From here take one of the tourist boats to Müggelsee-Terrassen where you can round off the day with a tasty evening meal.
