Country Life in Pankow



It is finally weekend time. Tired of city life and daily errands, the civilized and sophisticated you yearns to break free from the chains of the metropolitan lifestyle and “go back to the roots”.
Luckily for you, we have discovered the epitome of country life in the big city – with animals to pet, huts to admire, and cooking on an open fire. Welcome to the children’s farm (Kinderbauernhof) Pinke-Panke in Pankow! The farm is just slightly past the beautiful Bürgerpark, through which you should stroll too, for a remedying-via-laughter view of the lovely playful goats that entertain passers-by on a daily basis.

Pinke-Panke has existed in Pankow since May 1991. It is now home to three timber-framed buildings with animals, a large playhouse with kitchen, and a game room. All buildings are traditionally built as wooden structures, with a framework from clay or mud. Ecological principles represent the forefront of this farm. As a place of adventure and play, meetings and joint projects, Pinke-Panke is open to all interested children, adolescents, and adults alike. The founders of the farm believe that the care for animals and the engaged observation of nature let the children see the interrelationships between natural cycles – and consequentially plant the seeds for a (an even) more nurturing character in them.
