It is always good to know a nice and fabulous place nearby to be found in a small cluster of stucco-fronted streets which have retained much of their late 19th century charm. A tranquil enclave of Berlin where locals relax in pleasant street cafes and watch the world pass slowly by. Here tucked away on Charlottenburg’s quaint Danckelmannstreet is the entrance to the Ziegenhof or ‘goat courtyard’.
Although Berlin offers a lot of greenery, this special yard comprises an area of 6,000 m² where you find a mixture of city farm, green retreat and children’s playground and as well the main attraction , a family of very friendly goats. Housed in their own, Swiss-style chalet, they rub shoulders with a coop of well-fed chickens and love getting visits from kids both young and old.
It is well worth dropping past in this pretty relaxed part of town.
