Berlin Zoo usually refers to the Zoological Gardens in the west of the city, which are organisationally linked to the zoo in Friedrichsfelde. It is centrally located, next to the regional train station of the same name.
Berlin Zoo was inaugurated in 1844 and now houses over 17,000 animals from 1,500 species. Visitors to the zoo can see exotic animals such as tigers, polar bears and elephants, as well as domestic animals. Statues in the zoo provide a reminder of many former inhabitants of the zoo, such as Knut the famous polar bear, who dominated national headlines for weeks.
The Berlin Tiergarten – full name Großer Tiergarten – is Berlin’s second largest park and is located in the district of the same name. Running through it is the Straße des 17. Juni, the avenue where sports fans celebrate large footballing events such as the World Cup.
Berlin Tiergarten is a popular recreational space, both with locals and visitors to the city. A particularly good time to visit is on Sundays, when you can hear the chimes of the Carillon, a glockenspiel played by hand.
Gendarmenmarkt is a square in Berlin’s Mitte district. Many residents and visitors describe it as the capital’s most beautiful square. Famous buildings on the square include the German and French cathedrals. In both cases, the “cathedrals” are not the seats of bishops, but religious buildings with eye-catching domes.
Large, popular events are held on the Gendarmenmarkt in Berlin Mitte, including open-air classical music performances and the Christmas market during Advent.
The Sony Center in Berlin
The Sony Center is located on Potsdamer Platz, one of Berlin’s most central locations. Originally, the building served as a branch of Sony’s European representative; today it houses the headquarters of the German subsidiary.
The Sony Center is also home to other businesses, including shops and an entertainment centre, as well as residential properties. The spectacular tent roof symbolises Mount Fuji, offering Japanese mountain spirit Kami an abode in the heart of Berlin.
If the French had prevailed after the Second World War, the victory column would have been blown up. Thanks to the opposition of the other three Allies, the column located on the Großer Stern continues to provide a reminder of the Prussian victory in the war against Denmark, as well a German victories in two further wars of unification. Berlin’s victory column is crowned by the figure of the Roman goddess of victory Victoria, lovingly known by locals as Goldelse, or “Golden Lizzy”.
As well as offering a glimpse into Prussian history, the top of the tower offers panoramic views as far as the Brandenburg Gate.
Potsdam’s gardens – the palace gardens in Potsdam
Potsdam’s gardens are not located directly within Berlin, but in the adjacent city of Potsdam, connected to the capital by S-Bahn. They include great parks such as Sansoucci Palace Park, the New Garden and Babelsberg Park.
Many guests combine a visit to Potsdam’s gardens with a tour of its palaces, for which the parks were originally created. The New Garden also gives access to a large body of water in the form of the Holy Lake.
