During the winter time of the year, Tiergarten resembles a mysterious, enchanted forest. It’s vast and so empty. With the occasional runner passing our way, we were basically alone when strolling through the snow-covered grounds. I remember how packed and crowded the park is in the summertime. I don’t like it then, people leave their shit everywhere
