Botanischer Volkspark Blankenfelde-Pankow

Nature & recreation

Once upon a time, the largest school garden in Berlin was located on the grounds of today's Botanical Volkspark Blankenfelde-Pankow. Even today, on an area of 34 hectares, listed buildings and gardens from the beginning of the 20th century can be found, surrounded by valuable natural woods and meadows. In addition, the complex gathers thousands of partly rare plants, herbaceous perennials and plants.
