Planned by S-Bahn Berlin
"If I'm to introduce you to Berlin's history, then of course I can skip the darkest chapters: the NS regime and the Second World War. Today I have decided for this variant: In the midst of the Treptower Park hides a huge monument, namely the Soviet War Memorial. Only a few years after the war, the GDR government put a dignified monument to the fallen Red Army soldiers. Stone flags, a statue of a suffering mother and two kneeling soldiers and a monumental soldier with a sword and a child on his arm are enthroned above. Slightly thick, sajen se? Not so fat when they know there are over 7,000 Russian soldiers buried here. So walk in a little respect over the place and drown the dead. "Your tour starts at the S-Bahn station Treptower Park, which you can reach with the S-Bahn lines S8, S85, S9 and the Ringbahn lines S41 and S42. You leave the station in the direction of the park and shortly thereafter cross the Puschkinallee. On the edge of a wide meadow, you stroll to the stone entrance portal of the Soviet Memorial. Give yourself plenty of time to absorb the special atmosphere of the place.Afterwards, the path leads along the carp pond to the Spreeufer in Treptower Park. Several restaurants invite you to take a break here. Along the shore you finally walk back to the S-Bahn station Treptower Park.
