I spent the day walking around Berlin by myself while Gay took the kids to museums. I walked from the east side of Tiergarten to the west side while listening to Tangerine Dream’s song Tiergarten on my headphones and back to Brandenburg Gate – which was smaller than I thought, I expected Arc de Triomphe size.
Tiergarten was much more of a forest than a park, not manicured at all or beds of plantings. It has lots of gravel walkways through the woods and open areas, which makes for a nice walk.
I ended up doing a loop, east of our hotel, north across the river, near Humboldt University, back across the river through Tiergarten, to the Reichstag and back home. 16,000 steps!
