After the forbidden city we spent a short time in Jingshan Park.
The view is pretty extraordinary and worth the climb to the top.
We spent less than 45 minutes as we stopped in on our way to lunch after visiting the forbidden city. We did walk around much of the rest of the park.

This hill was created using soil from canals dug around the rear end of the Forbidden City. It is a climb with reasonable ease for the average person. The view up the hill is good which include the city of Beijing. It would be better if one is allowed to go up there at night.

Once you've been to a number of parks in Beijing, Jingshan will seem like anyother expect for one important fact: the park features a large hill that was build using the dirt and rock excavated from the moat of the Forbidden City and therefore boasts the best view in Beijing : right over the Forbidden City itself. A great place to take photos on a clear day and to appreciate the massive size of the Emperor's domain.
Something of a climb to the top, but any reasonably fit person will be able to manage.

Right across the street from the north exit of the Palace Museum. Be sure to check out this beautiful park. The park is basically a hill in the middle, with nice traditional buildings and lookouts. The hill is best enjoyed from East-to-West or vice versa. From East-West nicely places you right next to the entrace to Beihai Park/The Winter Palace.

We were trying to find something to do late in the afternoon and went here at about 3pm. What a beautiful place, very peaceful and lovely. The Chinese respect their parks.
