For a quick break in the open air, the Monbijou Park right beside the ARCOTEL Velvet is just perfect. If you want to go for a long walk in the woods, you should definitely visit the Grosser Tiergarten park. It is the green heart of Berlin.
Not only is Berlin the political capital, it’s also the cycling capital! You can see cycle-couriers on their fixies all over the city. There’s no better means of transport to get quickly from A to B here than a bike. And if you want to get to know the city by bike too - we can also offer bike hire at reception.
History you can touch: At the most famous and last remaining preserved sections of the Berlin Wall, the focus is on history and the division of Berlin.
