Panoramas of the World

Tiergarten (Berlin)

The Prussian nobility originally used the Tiergarten as their hunting area. In the 18th century it was converted into a park. The park was almost ruined during the Second World War.

Whatever the bombs did not destroy, the citizens of Berlin cleared in the hard winter of 1945/46. The firewood was used for cooking and heating. In 1949, the mayor Ernst Reuter gave the starting signal for the reforesting. Many German cities donated trees for the park. After a while, the Tiergarten became the largest city park in Europe. It covers a surface of approximately 200 hectares.
