SIGHTS AND LANDMARKS
One of the places worth visiting is the Botanical Garden
in Dahlem. It is part of the Free University of Berlin and offers a great variety of nature’s beauty. The Garden is regarded as one of the most beautiful Botanical Gardens in the world and houses over 20,000 plant species, as well as countless animal species. The terrain covers an area of 43 hectares and is therefore the largest Botanical Garden in Germany. Apart from plants and animals, art has become an inherent part of the Botanic Garden. Eight worthwhile sculptures decorate the path around the compound.
Dahlem furthermore offers numerous cultural facilities during your stay in one of our furnished apartments.
Visitors of The Royal Garden Academy
gain a unique insight into nature while learning about plants and getting the chance to seed and harvest vegetables themselves. The terrain fascinates not only professional gardeners but everyone who is interested in learning more about our environment.
Art enthusiasts will have a great time visiting the Museum of Asian Arts
. Thousands of exhibits take you on a journey through the various eras of Asian arts. The highlight of the museum is the collection of Japanese paintings and East Asian lacquerwork.
Centrally located in Dahlem, the Thielpark
covers an area of 10 hectares and is regarded as one of the most popular parks in the district of Berlin Zehlendorf. It is especially characterized by its sloping site which provides the park with an idyllic landsite. Apart from large lawns, it holds a total of four ponds, the biggest one being the “Thielparkteich”. The Thielpark is the perfect location for a stroll around these ponds or a picnic on one of the large lawns.
The perfect location to end the day in Dahlem before returning to your furnished apartment is the Restaurant Luise
. While enjoying a freshly tapped beer, you may choose from several homemade meals out of the extensive menu. You can either enjoy your meal in the classy atmosphere of the restaurant or sit outside in the related beer garden, which is regarded as one of the most beautiful beer gardens of Berlin.
If you prefer international cuisine, the restaurant Eierschale
offers the very thing for you. In unique ambience, you can choose from either German home cooking or international specialities. After dinner, the restaurant offers delicious cocktails at the bar.
The Organic Farm and Outdoor Museum Domäne in Dahlem
is a great all-weather attraction. Visitors of this 800 year old former manor can experience the development of food from harvest to consumption. The related farm shop furthermore offers the harvested and processed groceries for sale. The CULINARIUM is also part of the Museum and takes visitors on a journey through time. It shows the development and history of food and our consumption from as early as 1850 to today.
The Capitol Dahlem
, a historic movie theater situated in a villa, shows the most current movies. But apart from the movies, this theater is nothing close to a usual movie theater: grape ivy trails up the walls of the building that welcomes its visitors in the large front yard. Instead of popcorn, the Capitol offers champagne and the prestigious hall is reminiscent of a private villa more than of a movie hall. Enjoy the movies in a whole different way.
