Located just a short walk away from the train station, the Moorlinse is a small circular lake. It is home to all the species of water and wading birds which occur in Berlin. Broad reed-beds prevent direct access to the water but an observation platform provides excellent viewing. The lake drains into the Zick-Zack Graben a ditch which forms part of the lower valley drainage system of the Panke River. Adjacent fields and woodland provide diverse habitats for many bird species.
