Escape to nature
Berlin is a city with a green heart. The world famous Tiergarten Park provides a green lung for the city centre which has already a landscape with trees in every view.
While the large, sprawling city centre is already green with parks and gardens, the outer ring around Berlin is dotted with forests, lakes, rivers and ponds, many of which are very popular for swimming, walking, picnics and sports.
With Berlin's sophisticated integrated public transport system, or simply with a bicycle, you can enjoy great days out in the countryside, without even leaving the city!
Take a swim on any hot summer day at Schlachtensee, an easy ride away on the s-bahn!
And in winter, it becomes a wonderland of Skating fun!...and a good hot glass of Gluhwein, of course
