Berlin City Centre (4 Viewers)

Hi, I'm in Berlin centre next week, and have an afternoon free. Just wondering where best to go to maximise birding experience? I was going to go to Tiergarden...can I expect much there this time of the year (Goshawk, Hawfinch?) or palace gardens further west (woodpeckers?). Limited time, reliant on public transport, so any advice on reliable sites welcomed. Thanks 😉
Look at ornitho.de
In the top line You have the choice for German, English or French.
Than last 7 days
Than BE for Berlin
Than B for Berlin again
Than You can check all or rare, uncommon and so on.

For forest birds In woould look in Grunewald e.g. near Teufelsberg, reachable on foot from S-Bahn station Heerstrasse.
Water birds on river havel, e.g. near underground U-Bahn station Altstadt Spandau.

I managed 2x Goshawk (really close views on the south side of the Tiergarden with a large flock of Siskin (150+). Buzzard drifted over south & plenty of Nuthatches. Thanks again for everyone's advice.
