Welcome to Grunewald & Dahlem
Berlin’s most upper-crust neighbourhoods, Dahlem and Grunewald are packed with cultural and natural appeal. Set between their leafy streets and lavish villa colonies (especially around Grunewald S-Bahn station) are gardens, parks, palaces and a sprinkling of museums, most of them with an art focus. After WWII, the area was part of the American sector, a legacy reflected in such institutions as the AlliiertenMuseum (Allied Museum) and the hulking US Consulate. The Grunewald forest, a vast fresh-air refuge criss-crossed by paths and dotted with lakes extending all the way west to the Havel River, offers a respite from the city. Wild boar, deer and other animals make their home here.
