Berlin is Germany’s largest city with a population of 3.9 million people. Located in the north eastern part of Germany, Berlin is the capital of the country and one of the major cultural centres on the continent. It is the second most populated city in the EU, with residents from over 180 different nations. Berlin has long been a popular destination for expats because of its high living standards, affordable living costs, excellent infrastructure and creative spirit.
Berlin benefits from 4 distinct seasons, with beautiful warm summers, colourful autumns, snowy winters and mild temperatures in spring. This means there are plenty of outdoor activities for families in Berlin and surrounding areas year round. Vibrant Berlin is known as one of the greenest cities in Europe, with around one third of the city dedicated to green spaces and some of the largest urban parks in Germany. The largest of which, Tiergarten, is often compared to New York’s central park with over 200 hectares of space in the heart of Berlin’s Mitte neighbourhood. Boasting adventure playgrounds, sports facilities, a skate park and even an open air cinema in the summer, the green lung of the city is a hugely popular hub for families in Berlin, offering endless outdoor nature activities for kids.
