The huge green area in the middle of the city is where you can go jogging, picnicking, reading a book or sunbathing. There is no way around it once you go from one side of the city to the other. You get great views of the green canopy from the top of the Reichstag, Neni Restaurant or while riding the S-Bahn from Friedrichstrasse to Zoo Bahnhof. Much of Germany’s ultra-modern government buildings as well as the glass-box of Hauptbahnhof are in the north of the park. The simple yet touching Gay Holocaust Memorial is right across the street from the impressive (yet sad and disturbing) Memorial for the Murdered Jews of Europe.
