Tiergarten

by Stephanie Gilmartin in , , , ,


Berlin has the most beautiful park called the Tiergarten. It's huge -520 acres compared to NY's Central Park's 873.  Walking through it in the snow was like getting lost in a forest.  The whole thing is breathtaking. We went for a wander around the Neuen See, which is the biggest lake in the park.  I'd love to go back in the summer, when they have boats for hire.

The Cafe am Neuen See was beautiful - like an Alpine chalet in the middle of the snowy park.  The decor was lovely - very sparse and Scandinavian in style with white-painted wood, strings of plain lightbulbs outside and simple white candles, all lit, all around the windows.  Quite pricy but worth it for the atmosphere.

I won't elaborate on the rest of our walk, after I'd had some wine... I didn't make it through the rest of the snow without slipping though :-/
