Similar to the Central Park of New York or Hyde Park of London, Tiergarten Park serves as Berlin's green lung. With its origins dating back to 16th century, Berlin's Tiergarten has long loomed big in residents' minds as a gathering spot and a source of much-needed green space. The woodland grounds extend about 210 hectares, or roughly 519 acres. Boars and pheasants no longer roam the area, and in their place, lakes, hiking trails, English gardens, and even a biergarten draw runners, bikers, and sunbathers.
It is close to the city centre and surround famous landmarks like the Brandenburg Gate or Potsdamer Platz.

On a Sunday throughout the summer, Tiergarten Park visitors could hear the sound of a carillon. The carillon at Tiergarten Park was constructed next to the current Haus der Kulturen der Welt and was inaugurated in 1987 as part of Berlin's 750th anniversary festivities. The 68 bells in the 42-meter-tall tower make it the fourth-largest carillon in the whole globe.
Museum of Outdoor Gas Lanterns will sooth uyou with golden beauty: In the past, and in certain places now, gas lanterns were used to light Berlin's streets. In 1978, a public museum was built adjacent to Tiergarten S-Bahn station to honour this classic kind of street lighting. Currently, the collection includes around 100 gas lanterns from Berlin. The park walks are illuminated with a gentle golden light when evening comes and the lanterns are turned on.
