Alt-Treptow could arguably be one of the most pleasant and charming districts in Berlin. The streets never get too crowded, the buildings are beautiful one after the next, and, of course, there is Treptower Park, one of the most pleasing parks in Berlin. If you’re a traveler looking for some “off-the-beaten-path” scenes and sites, then Alt-Treptow is one area in which you’ll want to have a refreshing stroll. There is history, massive trees, abandoned parks, lakes, and did we say trees? Berlin is one of the greenest cities in the world, but Alt-Treptow is one of the greenest parts of Berlin.

Treptower Park is a world of its own. You can meet some people there for a picnic with your own music, take some summer sun, maybe drink a few beers, and enjoy a full day of outdoor bliss. There is even a small lake inside the park that many people don’t know about, which is great for a peaceful swim and topless tanning. In the autumn, have a walk, run, or bike ride through to see the leaves change from green to amazing reds and yellows. In the winter, Treptower park is absolutely picturesque, and captures European winters as we have always imagined them to look like.

2. Soviet War Memorial

The Soviet War Memorial is one of the most beautiful pieces of architecture and design in Berlin. Take a pleasant walk through Treptower Park in order to find this impressive memorial – it’s a memorable walk through history and war. This triptych monument serves as a memorial for all of the Soviets who were killed in Berlin during the Second World War during the Berlin battle.
