Located in the heart of Berlin, the Tiergarten is somewhat reminiscent of New York’s Central Park – a huge green oasis of calm in the centre of the city. Covering around two square kilometres, it extends from the Brandenburg Gate to Berlin Zoo, which makes it one of Germany’s biggest parks. Visitors can rent a boat at the Neuer See to the south of the park, go for a run along the narrow paths or main avenues, or simply relax in the sunshine. On Sunday afternoons in the summer, the delightful sound of the bells of Carillon tower can be heard close to the former Kongresshalle, which today is home to the House of World Cultures.
