In Berlin, you find the largest number of animal species in Germany. Yet, this is not where the name "Großer Tiergarten" (Great Animal Garden) comes from. The Tiergarten used to be the privat hunting ground of the electors and kings. In the mid of the 19th century, Friedrich II opened it to the public and Peter Lenné created the garden in the present form. At that time, it was still located outside the gates of Berlin. Today, the Tiergarten is right in the middle of the capital city. With its garden landscapes, watercourses and monuments, it is literally the greatest sight of Berlin. Seen from here, all the other sights and places of interest in Berlin Center appear to be kind of marginal features: the zoo in the West City, the "Mauerweg" (Wall Way) at Brandenburg Gate, the "Temples of the Arts" at the Culture Forum, the government and administrative district nestling into a bend of the Spree River, the postwar modern architecture in the Hansa Quarter, Potsdamer Platz which only became rebuilt after the reunion of West and East Berlin and, finally, the foreign embassies district and the the President's Palace. The Tiergarten, however, still is the star. And this is because, last not least, from here, five magical, shiny polished rocks from all five continents are going to save the world.
