4. Hike around Peacock Island

The gardening and architectural design of 67-hectare Peacock Island began at the end of the 18th century under King Frederick William II and his mistress Wilhelmine Encke. They had the small summer palace and a dairy constructed in a picturesque building style resembling a monastery gone to ruin, based on English and French models, with references to an ancient Roman style as well.

Inspired on islands in the South Pacific, exotic trees and plants gradually took root on this island. With beautiful landmarks, nearly 400 oaks and the oldest rose garden in Berlin, you can make a day trip to hike around this island.

From 10-16h you can take the ferry for 4€.


The Palace on Peacock Island is closed due to restoration work performed as part of the "Prussian Palaces and Gardens Master Plan". This means you can still go to the island and do a hike, but not get into the buildings.

Peacock Island • Daily 10:00 - 16:00h • Pfaueninsel • Peacock Island [Pfaueninsel] Nikolskoer Weg 14109 Berlin • 3G space (outdoor area/ need a mask for the Ferry) • More info
