Tour overview

Viktoriapark

Viktoriapark offers a peaceful escape with its lush landscapes and the historic National Monument. Climb to the top for a scenic vista of Berlin, or enjoy a lazy afternoon by the cascading waterfall. Fun fact: the monument at the top commemorates the victory over Napoleon, and the park’s waterfall was designed to mimic the cascades of the Giant Mountains in today’s Czech Republic.

Märchenbrunnen

The enchanting Märchenbrunnen in Volkspark Friedrichshain is a hidden gem featuring fairy-tale sculptures and ornate water fountains. It’s a magical spot perfect for a peaceful stroll or a family picnic. Here’s a secret: Märchenbrunnen translates to „Fairy Tale Fountain,“ and the statues represent beloved characters from German fairy tales, making it a whimsical destination for all ages.

Spreepark

Tour the eerie, abandoned Spreepark, once a thriving amusement park. Now it offers guided tours that take you through a ghostly landscape of dilapidated rides and overgrown paths—a hauntingly beautiful scene. A curious tidbit: the park closed in 2002, and many of the rides were left as they were, creating an almost surreal, post-apocalyptic atmosphere that’s perfect for urban explorers.

Teufelsberg

Ascend to Teufelsberg, an artificial hill built from WWII rubble, topped with a former NSA listening station. The area is now popular for its art installations and sweeping views of Berlin’s forested areas. Did you know that Teufelsberg means „Devil’s Mountain“ and that the hill was originally planned to be a university campus before it became a Cold War spy station?

Hidden Backyards in Mitte

Discover the Hidden Backyards in Mitte, where charming courtyards reveal Berlin’s layers of history, creativity, and café culture. These quiet enclaves are perfect for those looking to uncover Berlin’s secrets. Fun fact: many of these backyards are home to independent galleries, quirky shops, and cozy cafes, offering a tranquil retreat from the bustling city streets.
