Escape: Tiefwerder

Just a small suggestion for a Christmas walk during the upcoming holidays: Tiefwerder is a small village in between Berlin and Spandau, located inside of a natural reserve of wet meadows called Tiefwerder Wiesen with a plethora of flora and fauna and well managed paths to walk around without disturbing the many beavers, herons, buffalos, and the last remaining spawning grounds for pikes.
No joke.
Reachable by bus M49 from Bahnhof Zoo, or by car (may I suggest our supporting partner CarUnity, an easy and affordable way to rent private cars).

But this is certainly not their most impressing feature.
