Peacock Island

What is there to see in the Peacock Island near Berlin?

Silly question really. Some free range peacocks roaming around in the 76 hectare picturesque landscape, gardens and architectural work of art. There are some more exotic ones including a white peacock and many other species of birds in the captivity.

And you get a bonus.

"Like something out of a fairy-tale, the white wooden facade of artificial castle ruins shines through the treetops of a centuries-old tree grove."

In 1793 King Friedrich Wilhelm II bought it as an excursion venue and made it into an exotic world. (More Info)

My kid really enjoyed the Easter Monday holiday.
