The Lustgarten (Pleasure Garden or Garden of Lust) is a park on Museum Island in central Berlin, near the site of the former Berliner Stadtschloss (Berlin City Palace) of which it was originally a part. At various times in its history, the park has been used as a parade ground, a place for mass rallies and a public park.
The area of the Lustgarten was originally developed in the 16th century as a kitchen garden attached to the Palace, then the residence of the Elector of Brandenburg, the core of the later Kingdom of Prussia. After the devastation of Germany during the Thirty Years War, Berlin was redeveloped by Friedrich Wilhelm (the Great Elector) and his Dutch wife, Luise Henriette of Nassau. It was Luise, with the assistance of a military engineer Johann Mauritz and a landscape gardener Michael Hanff, who, in 1646, converted the former kitchen garden into a formal garden, with fountains and geometric paths, and gave it its current name.

One of the beauties of Museum Island Berlin. If you want to see it in all its glory, you should go at festival of lights night in end of spring. They put a light projection display with people competing from all over the world with animations to display on the building

Amazingly good looking place with very good green coverage. There are museum and cathedral on its around. Good place to visit and take good photos. A wide green yard in the middle of the city has added an extra beauty to the place. Also a good place to take rest while hasty visiting.

Really nice park!! As always though, beware of pickpockets and scammers (such as the clipboard women). Over all a nice place to chill

This is one of the most iconic places in Berlin. If you want to have a nice persoective of the area climb the Berliner Dom or take the elevator on the Hunboldt box just across the street.
