Having a walk in Tiergarten
Tiergarten is the biggest urban park in Berlin, and it is the second biggest one after Englischer Garten in Munich.
The park is more than 500 years old since the beginning of the park can be traced back to the year 1527. In those times the park mainly served as the hunting area to the King. Throughout the time a lot of changes have been made. During the World War 2, the park was damaged drastically and had to go through a major renovation.
However today, the huge park is an area for the locals for afternoon picnics, flea markets, restaurants and more. If you are going to visit Berlin in a sunny day in the spring, Tiergarten is going to offer you an authentic walk surrounded by trees in the middle of Berlin. If you want not to halt your daily routine of exercise, there are many different paths to run in the park, too.
In addition, if you have more time and want to make the best out of the Tiergarten, renting a bike may be a better idea than taking a walk or running.
Listen to Berlin Philharmoniker
Berlin Philharmoniker is regarded as one of the world’s best symphony orchestras and if you are fond of classical music, it is a must for you to catch one of the concerts when you are there.
Berlin’s art scene is not limited to contemporary art, which you don’t have to do much to get exposed to it since even the streets of this beautiful city is filled with different forms of it. In addition, it may be good to remember that Berlin is the city with the most number of active opera houses in the world and not only the visitors but also the locals support these by attending the shows.
When the relationship between Berlin and art is taken into consideration, it is even clearer to see why the city’s philharmonic orchestra is still one of the most appreciated one in the entire world.
