Tiergarten - it is not just a zoo

The last meeting of First Steps in Berlin group was held on 12 June 2018 in Tiergarten district. The group learned the history of the zoo while walking from the meeting point towards Zoologischer Garten. There was plenty to discover there. Following the path along the zoo, the group enjoyed the stroll next to the Landwehr Canal where the small boats float on the calm surface, passing the place where Rosa Luxemburg and Karl Liebknecht were murdered in 1919. A memorial plaque is a reminder of the crime.

It was a beautiful weather. Café am Neuen See was the perfect place for a break. Since there was still time left, the group continued the walk to the famous Bikini Berlin where the program ended. Everyone is ready for a summer break.
