Berlin’s public park game is on fleek. There are few cities in the world where one will find cooler parks than Germany’s capital. In Berlin, one has the pleasure of hanging out in old airports and train stations covered in graffiti and community gardens. Check out our favorite Berlin parks to chill in when visiting Europe’s coolest capital city!
Hands down one of the most unique parks in the world, Berliners and tourists alike love Tempelhof Feld. It used to be one of Europe’s major airports later converted into a public park. Physically walking on an airport runway is a trip and the park is absolutely massive. There’s more than enough room for everyone to picnic, grill, bike ride, fly kites, have festivals and whatever else people feel like doing.
Tiergarten, aka Berlin’s Central Park, is expansive, lush and breathtaking. Walking from one end of the park to the other are endless things to discover. From historic memorials, gardens, lakes, biergartens, restaurants to music.
Schlosspark (behind Charlottenburg Palace)
Schlosspark is the grounds behind the elegant Charlottenburg Palace, located in the lovely and fashionable Charlottenburg neighborhood.

Located in the heart of hipster Kreuzberg, Görlitzer Park is a cool, grungier hangout spot with lots of charm. The park consists of an old station converted into a colorful graffiti wall along with a cute bar called Edelweiss where people can get drinks and lounge on the balcony. There is a large field and more graffiti where one will find hipsters doing all sorts of things like parkour and qigong.
