The 2.5 sq. km (about 1 sq. mile) Tiergarten is the largest park in the city. Its more than 23 km (14 miles) of pathways make it popular with those who are looking for a leisurely place to stroll. It was during the reign of Friedrich I that the park was opened up to the public. His successor, Friedrich II, then employed Peter Joseph Lenné to redesign the park in the English style. The result of this work is what you can see in the park today.
