Visit the manor house or petting zoo at Domäne Dahlem (Photo by K. Wendlandt)
As an 800-year-old piece of agricultural paradise in the suburbs of Berlin, Domäne Dahlemis a functioning farm dedicated to offering a peek into living off the land and exploring the link between pastures and the shopping bag. Admire the restored 1500s manor house and charming old stables, then stroll the fields to visit the animals and admire the vegetable garden. A clunky old tractor and old-fashioned carousel will delight kids, while grownups can purchase fresh produce harvested straight from the farm. On Saturday mornings, the courtyard is filled with the market stands of organic farmers from around Berlin and Brandenburg. Check website for special events. Wed–Mon 10am–6pm in summer. Farm: Free except during special events. Museum: €3/1.50.
