Outdoor Attractions in and Around Berlin

When you think of Berlin you automatically associate it with the built up city centre, historic monuments, cultural attractions, retail empire and business which largely provide the make-up of this major capital city. However, the city also has an extensive natural aspect which many people neglect. Below are some of the best outdoor attractions in and around Berlin.

Botanischer Garten und Botanisches Museum

This series of stunning gardens is the perfect way to enjoy a day outside regardless of the weather, as the delight of the garden design will leave you not caring whether there is rain or shine. The Botanischer Garten is a godo family attractions and is certainly worth considering as an outdoor attraction in Berlin.

Schwarzlicht Mini Golf Berlin

Mini golf is a great way to enjoy the outdoors whilst engaging in a bit of competitive spirit. The advantage of mini golf over a standard golf course is that the holes are much shorter which makes them more attractive to amateurs. This is a fun way to relax and enjoy Berlin.

Spandauer Forst

This wonderful nature reserve is a great place to visit for families, couples and friends. There are a number of children’s parks as well as glorious fauna and wildlife. There are a number of smaller areas within the overall reserve which are deserving of a visit in their own rights. A visit here is a perfect way to be at one with nature. This is one of our favourite outdoor attractions in Berlin, Germany.


There are not many places where you can find a forest within the city walls, so having this in the middle of Berlin will be somewhat of a novelty for the visitor. make sure to visit Grunewald if you have the chance, with this attraction free to enjoy.
