There is noting better than hanging around in the parks of Berlin during the warmer months. Just take your friends, some food and drinks and enjoy the urban lifestyle of Berlin in one of the dozen parks. Even though Berlin is the capital city and there are a lot of streets and buildings, it is very easy to find a green place. It is really hard to decide which park you should choose for some quality time. That is why we offer you some tips:
One of the most famous parks in Berlin is the Mauerpark and you just have to ride one station from the MEININGER Hotel Berlin Alexanderplatz. You can sit down there and enjoy the view to the television tower. Every Sunday there is a huge flea market, where people sell their private stuff and designers offer their stylish accessories etc. Twice a month you can sing live karaoke in the park which is a lot of fun – for the singers and the watchers. Of course the Mauerpark is no longer an insider’s tip, but it is definitely worth a visit.
