Enchanting Landscape

With both the Havel and Spree rivers running through it, Berlin and its surrounding area offers an attractive landscape – not only for aquatic birds. Numerous parks in the city center serve as oases of calm away from the hubbub of the city; 18 percent of the city’s surface area is covered by forest. The lakes throughout the state of Brandenburg as well as the city of Potsdam and its river coves winding along the Havelchaussee offer a wide range of options for relaxation and leisure activities.

In Berlin, the environment and diversity are highly prized and carefully protected. This is also evident in the increasing trend for cultivating plants in gardens, backyards and allotments. With its many nature reserves, Berlin is one of the pioneers of sustainable environmental protection. 13 percent of the area of the city are nature reserves. The Tiergarten public park, the “green lungs” of the city, are well worth a visit – even for the diverse range of flora alone.
