Viktoriapark at the Kreuzberg

Victoriapark is a 12,8 hectar area on the Kreuzberg. The Kreuzberg – translation “cross mountain” – is the highest natural peak of Berlins city center. Yes, the highest. Which means Berlin is as flat as an iron board. The green park and slopes which you can picknick on are very inviting to spend a whole afternoon on top of the city.

But, besides being an interesting landmark and apparently a very important location to several wars and battles in the historic past, Wikipedia also tells me that Victoriapark has functioning vineyards! Approximately 600 bottles per year are pressed. I almost can’t believe anyone would bother to grow wine up there, but that’s just a quirky fact.
