Since the 19th century, the green district of Tegel has attracted day trippers keen to stroll its large forest, laze on idyllic lakeside beaches, relax at the attractive harbour or visit the manor house belonging to the famous Humboldt brothers.
The attractions also include the spreading Tegeler See lake with Berlin’s only landing stages for river cruise boats, and the lakeside district of Tegelort which even has a car ferry across the water to Spandau. The mood is rather more eerie at Heiligensee lake. Here, an ancient tale recounts how two bells float across the water at midnight, talking to one another.
Visiting Lübars village, with its charming farms, village school and baroque church, is like travelling back in time to a rural past. The Tegeler Fliess nature conservancy area starts just beyond Lübars – perfect to relax and recharge your batteries! Fully refreshed, head for the lovingly designed Heimatmuseum, the local history museum, or for Wittenau with its carefully maintained village green.
