A Day Out

Morning

Start your tour of Tiergarten at the Reichstag . Explore the government district from here starting with the Bundeskanzleramt (the Federal Chancellor’s Office, diagonally opposite). Stop at Restaurant Käfer (see Käfer im Reichstag) in the Reichstag for breakfast. Via John-Foster-Dulles-Allee you will pass the Carillon and the Haus der Kulturen der Welt on the way to Großer Tiergarten . Continue along one of the paths into the park, directly opposite the old Kongresshalle, until you reach Straße des 17. Juni. If you turn right here, you will be heading directly towards Siegessäule . From there continue along Fasanerieallee in a southwesterly direction until you get to the Café am Neuen See , where you could have lunch.

Haus der Kulturen der Welt
Afternoon

A stroll through the Diplomats’ Quarter (see Diplomatenviertel): from Neuer See, it is only a few steps along Lichtensteinallee and Thomas-Dehler-Straße in an easterly direction until you get to Klingelhöferstraße with its Scandinavian embassies. On Tiergartenstraße you will pass, among others, the embassies of Japan, Italy, India and Austria. From here you could continue south along Klingelhöferstraße, making a small detour for refreshments at Café Einstein . Continue along Lützowufer until you reach the Kulturforum via Potsdamer Brücke. A good place for an evening meal would be the Vox ().

Hidden Treasures

  1. Neuer See

    Shimmering in a mysterious emerald green, the largest lake in Tiergarten is perfect for rowing. Afterwards you can recover in the Café am Neuen See.

    • S-Bahn station Tiergarten

  2. Löwenbrücke

    The Lion Bridge, which leads across a small stream near Neuer See, is “suspended” from the sculptures of four lions. This idyllic spot is a favourite meeting point for gays in Berlin.

    • Großer Weg

  3. Lortzing-Denkmal

    There are 70 statues of philosophers, poets and statesmen in Tiergarten. The statue of the composer Lortzing, at one end of Neuer See, is one of the most beautiful.

    • Östlicher Großer Weg

  4. Houseboats

    Docked on the banks of the Spree are some of the remaining few houseboats in Berlin – an idyllic haven in the middle of the city.

    • Straße des 17. Juni, Tiergartenufer

  5. Carillon

    The carillon, officially dedicated in 1987, is the largest of its kind in Europe. The 68 bells are rung every day at noon and 6pm in the 42-m (138-ft) high black tower.

    • John-Foster-Dulles-Allee (Haus der Kulturen der Welt)

    • Open- air concerts: 3pm Sun May–Sep

  6. Englischer Garten

    The landscaped English-style garden near Schloss Bellevue is ideal for strolling.

    • An der Klopstockstr.

  7. Estonian Embassy

    The old Estonian Embassy, in a quiet side street next to the ruined Greek Embassy, is characteristic of the diplomats’ quarter.

    • Hildebrandstr. 5

  8. Locks

    The two canal locks behind the zoo, taking visitors across the dammed Landwehrkanal, are popular resting places.

    • At the Zoo, S-Bahn station Tiergarten

  9. Gaslights in Tiergarten

    With 80 historic gaslights along the paths, an evening stroll in Tiergarten is very romantic.

    • At S-Bahn station Tiergarten

  10. Landwehrkanal

    The sloping, grass-covered banks of Landwehrkanal are ideal spots to chill out.

    • Corneliusstr
