Directions for the Monuments and Gardens of Tiergarten Walking Tour

  1. Exit Bellevue S-Bahn station, go right and right again onto the path that parallels the river.
  2. Take the first left fork in the path and continue into Bellevue Park where you will get a nice view of Bellevue Castle, a grand neoclassical palace and official residence to the President of Germany
  3. From there backtrack west and then follow the path south to the English Garden. You can enjoy some refreshments at the English Teahouse.
  4. Continuing south you come to Bismarck-Nationaldenkmal - a large monument topped with a statue of Bismarch is surrounded by four smaller statues.
  5. Next on the list is Tiergarten's most famous monument - The Victory Column. You can read more about it on our full page linked to below. It is well worth the nominal fee to go up top for a magnificent view of Tiergarten and the city.
  6. From the Victory Column, cross over to the south side of Bundesstraße 2 and follow the pathway east and southeast to the beautiful Rosegarden and Brunnenschale.
  7. Follow the river east for a short distance until you get to a small bridge and cross over into the Rhododendrum Garden.
  8. Continue southeast to Luisen-Denkmal, a monument dedicated to Louise, the Queen Consort Friedrich Wilhelm III. The monument was erected in 1808, where Queen Louise enjoyed going for walks. There is a monument to Friedrich Wilhelm III a little to the north and a lovely garden in between.
  9. From here, exit the park at Stauffenbergstaße and walk one block south. Go left on Sigismundstaße. Watch for St. Matthews Church on your left and the Nue Nationalgalerie on your right.
  10. Go left on Potsdamer Straße. You will see the striking architecture of Berlin Philharmonie on your left as you walk to the end of our tour at Potsdamer Platz where you can catch your train.
