One of my most favourite outdoor activities to do in Berlin, is definitely Cherry blossom 🌸 watching during in Spring time. There is about 2 to 3 weeks in April (depending on the weather), the few spots in the city where the cherry blossoms bloom become attractions for all the families, friends, photographers and models.
"Inspired by the end of German division, the Japanese television network TV Asahi launched a major drive for contributions in 1990 in Japan. As an expression of the Japanese people's great interest in the events of German reunification and the friendship between Japan and Germany, money was collected for the planting of Japanese cherry trees (sakura) in Germany. These ornamental cherry trees are very popular in Japan and are said to bring people inner peace and serenity. TV Asahi set up an account for this cherry-tree campaign that eventually raised over 140 million yen (about €1 million) in donations. The many donations made it possible to plant over 9,000 trees, mostly in Berlin and Brandenburg. The first trees were planted in November 1990 at Glienicker Brücke (Glienicke Bridge), a site that had symbolized the division of Germany."
