If you can only do one thing in Berlin, visit the Tiergarten, and on bike would be best! Starting at Brandenburg Gate, directly opposite the park’s entrance, you are immediately thrown into the city's storied history and impressive architecture.
The sprawling park (600 acres) is full of historical landmarks, including the Reichstag, the Victory Column, and Germany’s version of the White House, Bellevue Palace. There are picturesque meadows, plenty of paths, and of course, the River Spree to walk or bike along. You’ll also find several beer gardens tucked inside the gardens, a nice way to relax and enjoy some of the local culture. It’s really a great way to see a lot of Berlin.
