Rare Separate Plan of Berlin's Tiergarten.

Large, attractive, and rare view of one of central Berlin's largest urban parks planned out by Peter Joseph Lenné and built between 1833 and 1840.

Berlin's Tiergarten was an early and important landmark in the pantheon of major urban parks. This redesign, by Lenné, borrowed extensively from the principles of English garden design.

Lenné envisioned a departure from the private royal parks of the past. His plans called for the creation of a rural Volkspark, or people's park, that would also serve as a sort of Prussian national park that would improve the lives of Berliners who visited.

Lithography is by G. Koeber.
