Clean, broad streets, lots of greenery, a pond, and church ruins in the background. Perfect spot for photography or just a walk.

In general, a beautiful square with a large pond in the center. This pond, in fact, constitutes its main and largest part, and a very long and narrow canal leaves from it towards another already large Berlin canal. On the other side of the pond is a restaurant and immediately after it is a large church. You can get around the square along the wall with a living corridor of plants. I really liked the square with the exception of one detail - in this corridor it smelled like urine and homeless. Once we met a rat.

Relishing the opportunity of glorious spring day, I set off on the 147 bus to explore the Engelbecken, reportedly one of Berlin’s hidden gems. By disembarking unintentionally a stop early – at Heinrich Heine Strasse, rather than Heinrich Heine Platz – I was able to take in a bit of the neighborhood, which seemed stolidly middle class and boasted a large Aldi supermarket. Surrounded by a graffiti-tagged red brick wall (a rendition of a tiger shark had pride of place), the pond itself was large but otherwise unimpressive. Spouts of water kept it well-aeriated, and the sloping grass banks had attracted sunbathers. One of the most appealing features was a café set at the water’s edge.
On the other side of the bridge, St. Michael’s Catholic Church, however, was worth the bus ride. The golden angel, which gave the pond its name, shimmered on top of the handsomely proportioned Italianate structure, and colorful frescoes flanked the entrance. Unfortunately, the gate was locked, so I didn’t have a chance to see the inside.
