If you are eager to discover what Berlin-Tiergarten has to offer look forward to a broad array of cultural events as well as more than a hundred restaurants, cafés and bars.
In an area rife with history, there are plenty of iconic buildings and monuments to see – starting with the eponymous park Tiergarten itself, which was lovingly restored after its near-destruction during World War II. The Reichstag building, designed by Paul Wallot in 1882, housed the parliament in Imperial Germany and the Weimar Republic, and today is the seat of the Bundestag. Another famous Berlin landmark is the Siegessäule (Victory Column) at Großer Stern, where the district’s major roads meet. The column was erected as a monument to the three Prussian victories in 1864, 1866 and 1870/71 that led to the creation of Imperial Germany in 1871. The Kongresshalle dates back to 1957 and today houses the Haus der Kulturen der Welt, which frequently hosts exhibitions, performances and educational events. Built in the Early Neoclassical style of the late 18th century for the youngest brother of Frederick the Great, the residence of the German President at Bellevue Palace is located on the banks of the Spree river between the Reichstag building and the Victory Column. The German Resistance Memorial on Stauffenbergstraße, named after the leader of the failed putsch against Hitler in July 1944, is a memorial and museum to commemorate the members of the underground networks who fought against the Nazis.
Art and Culture
Residents of Berlin-Tiergarten are spoilt for choice when it comes to cultural attractions and events. Located between Reichpietsch-Ufer and Sigismundstraße, the Neue Nationalgalerie specialises in 20th century art. Virtually on the opposite side of Potsdamer Straße, the Berlin State Library boasts a 350-year history and a collection of 11 million books. Also within easy walking distance is the Gemäldegalerie, which houses artworks by the great Italian, Dutch, English, Spanish and German painters from the Late Medieval Period to the 19th century, and almost adjacent to it the Philharmonie on Herbert-von-Karajan-Straße. Slightly off the beaten track, the Gaslaternen-Freilichtmuseum is a permanent exhibition of historic gaslights from different eras in an open-air space between the Tiergarten S-Bahn station and the park.
Tempodrom and Bauhaus around the Corner
In the Cold-War era, the Tempodrom – then housed in an actual big-top circus tent – provided a lone splash of colour in the bleak surroundings of Potsdamer Platz. Its current incarnation as a concrete building next to the Kongresshalle was completed in 2001 as a venue for rock concerts and other large-scale events. Also located in Tiergarten is the Bauhaus Archive Museum of Design. Based on a design by Walter Gropius, the building on the Landwehrkanal was completed in 1979 and houses a café and shop as well as the museum.
Nightlife and Going Out
There’s plenty of nightlife on offer in Tiergarten as well. The many cosy pubs and bars around Potsdamer Platz and on Lützow-Ufer are all within easy walking distance from your new home in Berlin-Tiergarten, as are the popular after-hours spots on Bellevue-Straße and, of course, Marlene-Dietrich-Platz. Berlin’s oldest cabaret, the Wintergarten theatre on Potsdamer Straße, hosts some of the most acclaimed entertainers from all over the world. The Chamäleon Theatre on Rosenthaler Platz offers circus performances, theatre and fine dining, while the Fragrances bar on Potsdamer Platz combines mixology with fragrances and scents. Also on Potsdamer Platz, the Curtain Club is inspired by London-style gentlemen’s clubs. Victoria Bar on Potsdamer Straße was featured in a New York Times list of ‘Five Places to Go in Berlin’ for its great cocktails and sophisticated interior.
