This month's tip is to walk the Panke. This is a tiny little stream from which the area Pankow gets its name, although this walk is all about Mitte and Wedding.
Often we run this route before work in the mornings on a 10k loop. It's a particularly pleasant urban run, and running is the best tempo at which to take in the slightly random assortment, but it can also make for a great walk of cycle.
It cuts in a slightly arbitrary way through the fabric of the city, starting at the shiny hauptbahnholf, past ministeries, watchtowers, and all the different housing typologies that have been tested in Berlin in the last 100 years. It is green and quiet, and mostly has the feel of being in the city's dreamy, linear back garden.
The route ends at S Bhf Wollankstrasse.
Here is the route on a google map. You can save this to your phone and use it as a guide.
