Zwischen Kaiserzeit und Republik im Tiergarten – S-Bahn Berlin
S-Bahn Berlin planned a hike.
February 28, 2019
"Well, here's where the next destination arrived: the Tiergarten. In the old days only the janz fine society was allowed to enter the park. The Prussian electors and kings fight here with their posh fiends on hunting - and the remaining Berlin puked in tube. Today there are still some traces of the time here: marble sculptures by Queen Luise or even the names of the paths. And at the other end of the Tiergarten is already the Reichstag. The Emperor had tapped him here when Otto von Bismarck had convinced him that one had to offer the German people a bit of democracy. Well, during the imperial era, the people's representatives with the Reichstag were actually just calmly. But after the First World War, Philipp Scheidemann took the opportunity to proclaim the republic from the west balcony of the building. In the Weimar Republic, it was then time for the first time to properly palaver - until Hitler marched with his henchmen. Anyone who sets fire to the Reichstag at the end of the day will probably not know what to expect, but one thing is for sure: Dat brown men knew how to use the fire for his plans. The rest is probably history. "The starting point of your tour is the Bellevue train station, which is served by the S-Bahn lines S3, S5, S7 and S9. From here you pass the Academy of Arts and enter the English Garden. Here you can take a break in the cozy tea house. Shortly afterwards you are standing at the big star in front of a Berlin landmark: the Victory Column with the Gold Else. The column was erected in honor of the German victories in the German-Danish War, in the German war against Austria and in the German-French War. Actually, the pillar was originally opposite the Reichstag, but the megalomaniac Albert Speer had the pillar in the context of the conversion of Berlin to the world capital Germania implement.From the Big Star, you stroll comfortably through the picturesque Tiergarten and across the small Luiseninsel. After your round through the park, you will cross the street of the 17th of June and stand a little later in front of the Reichstag building. However, if you want to visit the impressive glass dome, you must register in advance on the website of the Bundestag (bundestag.de/besuche/kuppel-dachterrasseunddachgartenrestaurant).From the Reichstag you follow our route along the banks of the Spree to the Friedrichstrasse S-Bahn station. From here it goes back home with the lines S1, S2, S25, S26, S3, S5, S7 and S9.
