From Alexanderplatz to Zoo: the most important attractions and sights in Berlin from A to Z. more
The Lustgarten is a public park on Museum Island in the centre of Berlin. Popular with tourists and Berliners alike, the neoclassical park forms a square with the Old Museum to the north and Berlin Cathedral to the east.
Lustgarten became a royal garden in the 17th century

Lustgarten was redesigned to serve as an accompaniment to the classical buildings
After the collapse of the Weimar Republic in 1933, the Nazis paved down the area in 1934 in order to facilitate its use as a parade square.
Today's Lustgarten reflects its original 19th century appearance
Christian Gottlieb Cantian's 1828 granite bowl has been restored to its original site opposite the Altes Museum. The public garden today is the result of the work carried out in the 1990s to restore it as closely as possible to its original 19th century appearance.
