The Große Tiergarten, the green lung of Berlin, was originally created as a hunting ground and is now one of the largest inner-city parks in Germany.

The many meadows in the park invite to play and sport, there is enough space for a picnic and there are table tennis tables in several places.

Cycling is allowed in the entire park – with the exception of the beautifully planted Luiseninsel – so that you can also explore the area on bikes. There are picturesque bridges and watercourses and you will also encounter wild rabbits everywhere!

If your kids love water, try renting one of the boats at Café am Neuen See and discover parts of the park by water!

The park also has a lot to offer for children. There is a beautiful playground close to Luiseninsel (at the southern end of the park), hidden under shady trees. Here you will find a toddler area with a small climbing tower and slide; a large climbing pyramid, swings, climbing elements made of wood and ropes, and a water playground.


There is another playground on the north side of the park, not far from the Triton Fountain. There is also a large climbing pyramid, slides, swings, lots of sand, spring elements, table tennis tables and a large climbing frame.

Useful information

The playground on Luiseninsel is visible and accessible from Tiergartenstrasse.

The playground near the Triton Fountain is visible and accessible from John-Foster-Dulles Allee.

The park is barrier-free. However, we noticed bridges that were not accessible at ground level.
