The main attractions usually were the Wall, the Brandenburger Gate and the Reichstag. But my all time favorite outing was a small picturesque castle on an island in the southwest of Berlin.
Pfaueninsel (the peacock island)
|the castle - das Lust Schloss|
Peacocks walk around all over the island, that is where the name came from. There is a green house in which they grew palm trees and they also held many exotic animals on the island during the reign of several kings. Many beautiful flower gardens and small forests to admire and explore. A wonderful place for a walk and for dreaming. Definitely a place worth a visit.
