Botanischer Volkspark (Blankenfelde Botanical Park) in the Pankow district of northern Berlin is a beautiful 84-acre public park containing 6000 species of plants. Many species in the park are on the endangered list.

Blankenfelde Botanical Park is off-the-beaten-path, therefore, taking a bit more effort to get to. A trip on the U-Bahn and a couple of connecting buses or tram ride will do the trick. On the plus side, because it's a little out of the way, it's not overrun with tourists.

There are plenty of walking paths for exploring the park which is more informal than some botanical gardens, but very well maintained.

You can see fallow deer and sheep inside the park. Bird watchers will enjoy the diversity of birds there.

Bird-watching tours and tours of the park greenhouse are available.

During your visit, you can relax and enjoy a beverage or yummy cake in the coffee shop.


Blankenfelde Botanical Park began over a century ago in 1909 as a school garden.

During both world wars it was utilized to produce fruits and vegetables.

In 1912 a “Geology Wall” was set up to teach visitors about the upper layers of rock encountered in Central Europe.

Humboldt University in Berlin has conducted research on the site since 1977.

The “Geology Wall” was erected in 1912 to help visitors learn about the uppermost rock layers in Central Europe.
