Description
This forested district in Berlin developed out of a “mansion colony” built by merchants, scientists and artists in the mid-19th century. It became a leafy haven for Berlin's elite, and 150 years ... Read more
later, it still is. Today, Berlin residents head to Grunewald to take advantage of the forest, which is still teeming with wildlife, despite being surrounded by city. The forest has a few small lakes, and in the winter is good for skiing, ice skating or sledding.

Grunewald is where you would want to go if you are a camper, an adventurist, a biker, horse rider or someone who simply loves forested areas and would like a relaxing excursion with friends. Situated to the south west of Charlottenburg, Grunewald is a place that you should visit.

Grunewald is a mixed used wilderness area that is excellent for biking and swimming. There is one lake called Teufelssee which is clothing optional lake ideal for a romantic liaison.

But watch out for the wild boars! It's fascinating that there are dangerous wild animals in a major European capital city!

Miravet, Spain

A district on the western side of the city, often overlooked by visitors staying in the centre, Grunewald is renowned for its huge, often imposing villas and acres of beautiful forest. The area is no more than 15-20 minutes on the S-Bahn from the city centre and well worth a half day's walking tour to take in the impressive architecture which attracted middle class Germans from the late 19th Century onwards. At around 3,000 ha, Grunewald Forest is the largest green area in metropolitan Berlin and is a beautiful place for a stroll, followed by lunch at Forsthaus Paulsborn (see separate review), a former hunting lodge in the middle of the forest.

Grunewald does have a darker chapter in its history, between 1941-1945 some 50,000 Jews were deported from the freight railway station here. There's a memorial accessible via the S-Bahn station.

Auf dem Mahnmal, welches von der Deustchen Bahn gestiftet wurde, vermerkt die Anzahl der deportierten Juden und deren Bestimmungsort.
