Nestled in Berlin’s southwest, Zehlendorf offers a break from the city bedlam, and backs into Grunewald Forest, known for its fairy tale ambiance. Zehlendorf boulevards are lined in the warm months with fragrant lilacs, inviting pedestrians to stroll through under their fragrant boughs. Looking for a place to relax in the afternoon? Lounge on the beach of Grosser Wannsee, a beautiful lake popular with tourists and locals alike. Enjoy ice-cream in the sun, lazing your day away on sand imported from the Baltic coast. Haus der Wannsee-Konferenz is a permanent museum exhibition educating visitors on the holocaust of 1933-1945.
- Admire an impressive collection of expressionist paintings, drawings, sculptures, and postcards from Germany’s iconic Die Brücke expressionist art movement at Zehlendorf’s Brücke-Museum in Berlin.
- Relax at Zehlendorf’s Lake Schlachtensee, a favourite spot for fish and fishers, which pours into the outskirts of Grunewald Forest and boasts a scenic seven kilometre boardwalk and heritage-house beer garden.
- Reconnect with history on the Glienicke Bridge, which connected East and West Berlin and is known as the bridge of spies due to the American and Soviet operatives that met on this bridge for reconnaissance.
Arrive in Berlin via one of the currently operating international airports: either Shönefeld Airport or Tegel Airport. After March 2013, international flights will be routed through the newly constructed Brandenberg Airport. Zehlendorf was recently merged with the Steglitz region to form one municipality, and is connected directly to Berlin’s downtown core via major auto-route 1. This is also the road to take to get to the Glienicke Bridge. The S-Bahn S1or S7 routes have several convenient stops throughout Zehlendorf. S-Bahn’s Berlin-Schlachtensee, Nikolassee, and Wannsee stations will leave you close to Grunewald, Lake Schlachtensee, and the Wannsee Beach, respectively.
