The borough of Marzahn-Hellersdorf is located in Berlin, Germany. Marzahn is a neighbourhood that has remained rural well into the days of the DDR. Now it has been built up into a true urban landscape, but it still manages to retain some its original rural charm through its farm museums and large parks. It's not one of the more trendy areas in Berlin, but it is one of the more comfortable and relaxed areas. During your stay in Marzahn, wander the Chinese gardens, the local working windmill, or go shopping in the smaller, locally-owned specialty shops.
- Visit the Gründerzeitmuseum operated in traditional Marzahn farm house to view a private collection of antique furniture and turn-of-the-century musical instruments, then visit the adjacent garden for a diverse program of cultural events.
- Wander the gardens of the world at the Erholungspark Marzahn that feature extensive recreation areas, playgrounds and themed gardens, including the Garden of the Reclaimed Moon, one of the largest Chinese gardens in Europe.
- Take the kids to the Bockwindmühle Marzahn; this museum within Berlin remains a working windmill where a miller grinds flour for local bakers and visitors.
Because if its rural nature, Marzahn is one of the poorer neighbourhoods within East Berlin. As such, parking may be an issue, however, luckily for travellers, the town is easily reached by taking S-Bahn train lines S7 or S75. The train stations serving Marzahn are Springpfuh, Marzahn and Ahrensfelde. You can also take the tramway connections to inner Berlin from here on the Berlin Straßenbahn (M6 and M8 lines). Despite potential parking problems, the district is a bit spread out, so you may prefer to have access to a car, or at least a bicycle to tour Marzahn.
