Viktoriapark, Berlin

#16 of 61 in Parks in Berlin
The Viktoriapark (aka Victoriapark) is an urban park in the locality of Kreuzberg in Berlin, Germany. It opened in 1894.

It is situated on the Tempelhofer Berge range, forming the northern slope of the ground moraine Teltow Plateau, overlooking the glacial valley with Berlin's city centre. The major landmark of the park is a cast iron monument of 1815 dedicated by King Frederick William III of Prussia to the liberation wars (Befreiungskriege) fought at the end of the War of the Sixth coalition against France in the course of the Napoleonic Wars. It provides an excellent viewpoint over much of the central and southern portions of the city. In summer an artificial waterfall originates at the foot of the monument and continues down the hillside to the intersection of Großbeerenstraße and Kreuzbergstraße.

A historic wine-growing area, today the park is neighbouring two small vineyards, one in the northeast founded in 1968 and owned by the Senate of Berlin and cultivated by the adjacent market garden, the other one established in summer 2006 within the Victoria Quarter on the southern slope of the Kreuzberg hill. However, only the old vineyard provides for the local "Kreuz-Neroberger" wine, gained from vines donated by Kreuzberg's twin towns Wiesbaden (1968) and Ingelheim am Rhein (1975), as well by the Bergstraße county (1971 and 1973) and from Bad Bergzabern (1985). About 600 bottles are pressed each year.

  • Visited this park and was disappointed that the waterfall wasn’t running but the monument and there views were both stunning.  more »
  • It's a small, but interesting park in Kreuzberg. Go to the top of the hill and you will be rewarded with a nice view of Berlin - you should be able to see the Fernsehturm. The monument on top...  more »

  • Splendid! A nice spot hang out in a cool area. The noise of the waterfall makes you feel like you are not in Berlin at all.
  • I just discovered this park recently when I got to know that there are waterfalls in there!!! I didn't believe it first. Waterfalls in the middle of Berlin, no way! But I was wrong there is indeed a waterfall in the park and there is a nice little history to it. Long time ago one of the Kings in Berlin went on vacation to the mountains on the border between Poland and Czech republic. There he saw a waterfall and he really liked it and he got a replica of the waterfalls done in this park and named the park in honour of his wife Viktoria. So yeah, it is a man made waterfall and it has been thoroughly done. The fall looks so original that you cannot tell it from a natural one. Even the placement of the rocks is really good. It is a nice place to chill with friends. Be there around sunset as it is one the best sunsets you can see in Berlin. I personally like these two things, waterfalls and sunsets. So this is a perfect place for someone like me to go and relax.
