20 Green Walks in Berlin at a Glance

The 20 Green Walks are as diverse as Berlin. There are short and longer routes as well as two circular routes. They start or end on the outskirts or in the middle of the city. Some path connect the opposite city limits or several historical settlement centers with one another, or they follow the great waters of Berlin. Some walks are rather quiet in the outer city area, others lead directly through the pulsating center of Berlin. But no matter where, they are always looking for the greenest course, which sometimes just doesn’t exist (yet).
