“Are we still in Berlin?”

That is probably what you will be asking yourself as soon as you enter the Bürgerpark Pankow through its glorious arch and see its perfect lawn. This magical space even holds a rose garden! Here are the TOP 3 things you probably don’t know about the park:

Goats

There is a bunch of mountain goats that love to be petted in the Bürgerpark Pankow. Great for the kids, but also very nice for adults. You can just release your daily stress by strolling in the park and showing these goats some love ❤

Needless to say that you should not feed them any sort of human food.

Pankeweg

Now part of the 20 Green Walks in Berlin, the Pankeweg is a trail going along the river Panke from Bernau to Berlin-Wedding and passes in the middle of this beautiful park. There you can run, walk or cycle. In Berlin, the Pankeweg is marked by blue and white stripes with the number 5 in the middle as part of the North-South Walk (the 5th walk from the 20 Green Walks in Berlin), but out of the city, for example in Bernau, it is marked by red and white stripes.

Art

There are several art pieces scattered in Bürgerpark Pankow. The most noticeable one surely is the monument to Julius Fučik, a Czech writer and resistance fighter by Zdeněk Němeček. But there are several others to be discovered while walking the park.
