Bike Touring Highlight
The islander consists of rubble, which was piled here after World War II. Nowadays it is a very beautiful green area with u.a. old trees. On the top of the islander is a small observatory, which belongs to the planetarium at the western foot of the islander.

Nice park. From the summit there is a beautiful view towards Steglitz (roundabout) and towards the center, here you can see the gasometer, Schöneberg town hall, skyscrapers at the zoo and the television tower. Not as well known as other Berlin viewpoints, but still very nice, even if you only have the really good view in winter, as it won't be blocked by the leaves. There is also an outdoor pool and an observatory on the summit. So a detour to the islander is always worthwhile, for cyclists you can definitely take it on a tour along the very beautiful bike path on the tracks from Gleisdreieck / Südkreuz towards Steglitz / Lankwitz to the Teltow Canal.
