A great little island with free roaming peacocks. Costs 3 euro (return included), you have to take a ferry to get there (for about 1 minute). It's a bit out of the way the bus that goes there only comes once every two hours, so...More

You can easily reach here by taking the S-Bahn to Wannsee then taking the 218 bus from outside to its terminus (non-station side, go through underpass when exiting station to far-side). Once off the bus you pay the €4 ferry fare and its literally only...More

I am not big with outdoor activities in the cold, but the short drive through the magnificent forest and the long walk on Peacock Island was perfect! Nature at it's best! The colors, the fresh air and the calm can not be found anywhere else....More

This island can be accessed from Wannsee S-Bahn station with the bus 218. Just check the departure times of this nostalgic bus because it departs like once in an hour. Arriving to the Pfaueninsel dock takes almost 10 minutes. From there, the ferry departs in...More

Find your way to the Pfaueninsel on a sunny day and you won't regret it. Peacocks abound under foot - and seemingly under every bush. Lovely gardens, picturesque small chateau castle hideaways of German royalty, and a fabulous aviary of beautiful birds all with the...More

By train and bus, Peacock Island is about an hour away from the center of town. When the 218 drops one off, there is a short walk to a ferry which has about a 2 minute crossing. I traveled on foot (no other choice) around...More

We only looked at the castle. I don't think you can go inside, but the whole island is beautiful.
