Viktoriapark, Kreuzberg

Uphill training? Vineyards? Berlin has many surprises. On the 66 meter high Kreuzberg hill, the highest natural elevation in central Berlin, you can improve your conditioning while watching the vines ripen. Kreuzberg hill offers a unique view of the city as well.
The 1.2 km route through Viktoriapark, however, is demanding. While the park trails are well maintained, there is little leeway for variations or adaptations to individual needs.

The main attraction of the park is the large waterfall which falls towards Großbeerenstraße over 24 m of rocky terrain. Since 1821 a national monument has stood on Kreuzberg hill in order to commemorate the wars against Napoleon. Designed by Schinkel, it is shaped like a cathedral tower and topped with the cross that gave name to the hill and later the district. Viktoriapark itself was established in 1888-1894.
The park was later enlarged with green areas, sport fields and playgrounds, a beer garden and a petting zoo. Today it serves as an important source of recreation to the neighbourhood. The vines on the hillside have been cultivated since the middle of the 16th century, and every year in September there is a fair here.
