If you long for greener scenery whilst visiting Berlin, you would be remiss to pass up Grunewald, a lush area of forests and lakes in the western borough of Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf. This is also a very posh residential area where the parks and swimming holes are always in pristine condition, so be sure to pack your swimsuit if you visit Krumme Lanke. Going through the Grunewald Forest is the River Havel, home to the Schwanenwerder islet, on which sits a set of mock ruins that include one of the columns from Tuileries Palace in Paris.
- Explore the conifers, nut trees, lakes, and ponds of Grunewald Forest, which includes several wildlife reserves that protect Berlin's endangered fauna.
- Tour picturesque Jagdschloss Grunewald, a medieval hunting lodge which once belonged to German royalty and now exhibits fine paintings by masters such as Rubens and Cranach.
- Enjoy the breath-taking panoramic view of Grunewald Forest and Havelland from the grand Brick Gothic tower, Grunewaldturm, an imposing piece of 19th century architecture overlooking River Havel in Berlin.
Berlin-Tegel International Airport is only thirteen kilometres from Grunewald using the A100 motorway or the S-Bahn commuter rail lines S41, S42, and S46. There are several other S-Bahn lines that run throughout this district, and the U-Bahn subway line U3 and several trams run to popular areas like the major lakes and the old lodge. Many sightseeing areas are pedestrian and bike-friendly. Travelling around the Charlottenburg district by car can be a challenge due to the high cost of parking, but the BAB 115 motorway will access this area if one prefers to drive.
