Tiergarten

Tiergarten is best known for its lush public space that inspires blissful relaxation and thoughtful contemplation.

Defined by its expansive park and popular zoo, Tiergarten serves as a fecund playground and living monument for busy urbanites. Tiergarten’s seemingly endless winding paths and wooded walkways open into intimate circles where public art and private pain collide. The neighborhood doesn’t shy away from representing Berlin’s struggles and its provocative artworks, sculptures, and memorials inspire thoughtful reflection. It’s not all somber—Tiergarten’s morning flea markets and lakeside cafes provide relaxing respites for the emotionally weary.
