3- Do a Kreuzberg & Neukölln Stand-Up Paddling Tour

4- Bike drive at the Tiergarten
With 2.1 km2 this enorme Berlin green area is the perfect fairy tale inspiration. Romantic small bridges, green fields, old oaks and wild flowers make this park a backdrop of dreams. During spring it is specially beautiful due to the creeping flowers that cover the floor purple. To get a good look at the park, go by bike.
5- Grill at Görlitzer Park
This urban Berlin babe gets crowded and colorful during the season. Locals from the Kiez come chill and grill as soon as the first warm sun rays of the year come out.
