The Insulaner is a rubble mountain in Berlin Schöneberg at the border to Steglitz. After World War II, the Insulaner was raised of the debris of the destroyed city of Berlin. Thanks to the varied and abundant vegetation, it is nowadays hardly noticeable that the Insulaner is artificial.
On top on the summit plateau in 78 meters height, the Wilhelm-Foerster Observatory was built. Here you can look through the telescope and watch the stars of Berlin and faraway planets and you will go on an extraterrestrial journey. In bad weather, you can join a guided tour through the observatory. There is a lot to see!
At the foot of the mountain, there is the planetarium. Do you feel like regarding the magnificent starry sky under the dome of the planetarium?
In summer, there are two more attractions on the Insulaner. There, you have the opportunity to play minigolf. Personally, I love minigolf and it is just a big fun. Try it out and I bet you will also like it.
On particularly hot days, a cool down feels really well. So off you go to Sommerbad am Insulaner. The open-air pool consists of an outdoor pool, a baby pool and a 1-, 3- and 5-metre diving tower and of course a non-swimmer pool with a waterslide! In the hot summer months, there is almost nothing better than a refreshing dip in the outdoor pool to enjoy the day.
You see, the rubble mountain Insulaner offers an alternative to the usual sightseeing. Here you can spend a relaxing day, without the hustle and bustle of the city centre. And because of the Insulaner is not far from Anna 1908, you are quickly back at the hotel and you can get ready for an exciting evening in Berlin. The nearby S-Bahn S1 brings you to Potsdamer Platz, to Brandenburg Gate, to Friedrichstraße or Oranienburger Straße.
So, where you wanna go?
