Weihnachten im Tierpark

The Tiergarten is the most popular park in Berlin.  It is 210 hectares (520 acres) which makes it the third largest urban garden in Germany.

It was founded as a game and hunting area for the aristocracy back in 1527.  Eventually it became a public park.

There are over 8500 trees so it's a great green space in the city.  The Tierpark gets more than 1,7 million visitors a year.

Claudia surprised her parents, Tünde, and I with a trip to the Christmas in the park event.  It was so nice.  There were Christmas lights everywhere. 

The Czech Bear

As you entered in to the park you passed an exhibit of Berlin Bears where each bear is decorated to represent every country and the bears are lined up holding hands as a symbol for peace and tolerance.

The USA Bear

Of course I had to get a photo with the Statue of Liberty Bear.

It was cold last night so which was the perfect excuse for some Glühwein along as we walked along the path.

This was a nice surprise and a fun Berlin family outing in the city.  

It was a perfect way to end my Christmas holidays.  Maybe going to the park will even become a new Christmas tradition for us.

Here's the 30-second German commercial that I found out on YouTube.
