Ride the park train to the playgrounds and the rose garden
The site of the Federal Garden Show 1985 is now one of the most attractive recreational areas in Berlin. At the Britzer Garden, there are many way to spend your leisure time in a relaxed manner: ten hectares worth of lakes, theme gardens such as the famous rose garden, playgrounds, a geological garden, a witch garden and the great outdoor laboratory, where there is a permanent exhibition concerning the world of animals and plants. At Kalenderplatz, the largest sundial in Europe is found. Whoever has become exhausted from having walked through the 100 acre large garden can continue exploring the garden with the help of the park train - or such persons may opt to pay a visit to one of the three restaurants which are open year round (Café am See, Bistro am Kalenderplatz, Restaurant Britzer Mühle).
Toilets are wheelchair accessible, wheelchair rental service, tactile signs
Bicycles and dogs are not permitted in the garden.
Animal enclosures and wildlife
Also on the premises is a large animal enclosure, housing sheep, goats, donkeys and ducks. People come here, especially at Easter, to admire the little lambs. If you’re lucky, you can sneak a peek at the wildlife in the Britz Garden, for example, the two swan families or the foxes. Children will especially enjoy the large play area: There are glaciers and deserts, the rock and water landscape also promise exciting adventures. During the Berlin summer holidays, young architects can also help to extend the clay Makunaima village (more information at www.interglotz.de).
