The Pfaueninsel (peacock island) is only accessible by ferry. The fare of 4 Euros seems ridiculous at first glance as the trajectory is not much longer than the boat itself. However, it also serves as the entrance fee to the vast park so it is...More

I am not big with outdoor activities in the cold, but the short drive through the magnificent forest and the long walk on Peacock Island was perfect! Nature at it's best! The colors, the fresh air and the calm can not be found anywhere else....More

Perfect way to spend an afternoon if you need a break from the commercial and consumerist chaos of the city. Just a short trip on public transport from Charlottenburg through the forest, it's amazing that such rural delights exist so close to a major city....More
