Spring Flowers in Tiergarten

The "Grosse Tiergarten", located in Berlin's center is the second largest urban park in Germany. 
Originally used as hunting reserve by the Electors, it was transformed into a park in 1830. From 1961 - 1989 its eastern borders were crossed by the Berlin Wall.
In the center of the park, the famous Victory Column (Siegessäule) dominates a busy traffic circle. This monument survived World War II without considerable damage and was saved from destruction through the French by a British-American veto after the war.
The vast parkland is a fine place to walk, relax, barbecue or just admire blossoming flowers.
