There’s more to Tegel than the airport. There’s also a really old tree. Fat Mary (real name) is over 900 years old and grows in the gardens of Tegel Castle. If you were lucky enough to get a window seat, you can’t help but notice Lake Tegel as you fly into Berlin. The second largest lake in Berlin, in summer it teems with Berliners boating, hiking, swimming and of course grilling.
Summer in Berlin is all about open airs. After six months of winter it’s no wonder. Open air parties and concerts heave with people taking advantage of the long days and even longer nights. Take the S3 out to Rummelsburg, then the 21 Tram, and head for the banks of the Spree where you can party with a few hundred of your newest friends at Rummelsburg Berlin. If you prefer a slightly slower place, chill in a cabana on the man-made beach or grab a few beers and grill the night away at this hidden oasis.
Take the U2 or U6 to Stadtmitte and behold some of Berlin’s most beautiful architecture. Exit the U Bahn via the ‘mouse tunnel’ and you will pop out at the bottom of the Gendarmenmarkt. Between the mirrored French and German Cathedrals you will find the Konzerthaus Berlin, where Weber, Beethoven and Wagner all premiered their works. Continue north towards the historic boulevard Unter den Linden and behold the Alte Bibliothek (Old Library) and Staatsoper (State Opera House), all commissions of Frederick the Great.
