Berlin’s Central Park is Tiergarten, a huge stretch of parkland, formal gardens and leafy walkways in the city’s west.
Until the 1830s the parkland was used as a hunting ground. Today it houses the home of the German President, an array of public sculptures and memorials, canals and lakes, and a network of lovely shady avenues.
The park’s avenues merge on the 66 meter (216 foot) Victory Tower, topped with a gilt angel. If you’re feeling fit, you can climb the 285 steps to a platform at the top to catch stupendous views of Berlin.
Good way to get acquainted with the city and to see certain sights quickly if there is limited time.
It was very nice, don't hesitate to buy Berlin City Hop on Hop off.

This was an incredible break. Berlin was fascinating and the free upgraded hotel was stunning. Most definitely not our last visit here and I have visited many places to draw comparisons.
The eastern edge of the Tiergarten is bordered by the Reichstag, Bundestag and Brandenburg Gate.
The closest subways are Tiergarten on the western edge of the park and Brandenburger Tor on the east.
