View into the Monbijou Park

Monbijou Park is a park in former East Berlin, at the Southern end of Oranienburger Strasse, between Oranienburg Strasse, and the River Spree. Close to the Friedrichstadt Palast, Neue Synagogue and the Sophienkirche.


Once the grounds of Monbijou Palace and the old English Church of St. George, it's now home to an open-air swimming pool for children. It is a much needed, "shady refuge from the unrelentingly urban landscape of the area". A foot bridge connects the park with the Museuminsel (Museum Island), close to the Bode Museum and Pergamon Museum. There is a bust of poet Adelbert von Chamisso.
