Cherry Blossom Trees, Lichterfelde/Treptow

South of Berlin (Lichterfelde/Teltow) you can enjoy a beautiful avenue of Cherry blossom trees that stretch for about 2 km along a section of the Mauer Weg – the trail where the Berlin Wall once stood.  The Japanese donated funds for this project in celebration of the reunification of Germany after the Wall came down and it is a truly beautiful experience to walk through this avenue of trees in full bloom.  Bring a picnic and you can spend hours lazing around beneath the branches, watching people as they go by, with their cameras, bikes and even horses!  This is very much a seasonal activity, so be sure to time the trip to coincide with early Springtime and spend a whole sunny afternoon there.  It is magic!
