Overview

Situated in what was once the militarized “death strip” of the Berlin Wall (or Mauer) that divided East and West, Mauerpark is now a social, cultural, and artistic center of the city. Today’s Mauerpark is on land that ran between the two parallel walls separating East and West Berlin. With its observation towers, attack dogs, trip wires and armed guards primed to shoot anyone trying to escape to the West, it was known as the “death strip.” The park dates back to the early 1990s when local residents, noticing the rapid spread of self-seeded vegetation on the sandy strip of land, began planting trees and calling for the creation of a park. As a result, the city’s politicians included Mauerpark in the city’s bid to host the 2000 Olympics. Although Berlin’s bid for the Olympics was not successful, the plea to build Mauerpark was. In Mauerpark you can take a stroll, lie around, read, play on the swings, play boules and basketball, picnic in the birch grove, get involved in community gardening, go to the Rainbow Playground with the kids, watch musicians and performers in the amphitheatre, have a drink and a bite to eat in the outdoor cafes or hunt for bargains at the Sunday flea market.

The park is full of characters on a Sunday afternoon from those who just left Berlin clubs in search of a place to continue their good time to those bringing their children for a nice afternoon rummaging through the bargain bins. You will find people...More

We have never seen anything like this. It was a wild, joyous day in the park with people singing their hearts out. Beers, local food and great market all make this a great afternoon out on a nice day. Only in Berlin!

Start the day early at Mauerpark - we arrived at 4pm, and there was nothing else left - people were heading towards the beer garden. No karaoke, no fleas left.

Mauerpark is not to be missed on a Sunday afternoon. Musicians playing, live acts in the theater, a vibrant flea market, and food carts. Be sure you experience this.

This is a Sunday place with a big market and open air performing spaces e.g. The Bear Pit. It was very busy and hard to see anything - a good atmosphere but go early

love going there, especially with great weather on a Sunday. Lots of people, music, markets, graffiti, artists, film crews and other crazy stuff. You'll meet people from all over the world, so certainly worth a visit

I went to Mauerpark last Sunday and had a chance to experience it in all its glory. The day was sunny, so there were a lot of people there and it looked like a small hippy festival. There was a small hipster fleamarket with a...More

Went on a Monday so not during the much raved about Sunday festivities. Nice walk along Mauerweig but never saw any wall section. No signage. A bit of a disappointment.

The park was quite muddy after days of rain but the people selling their stuff didn't seem to mind, maybe as their posessions weren't valuable or interesting. Professional sellers had set out rows of cartoon boxes on long tables full of glass, plastic and porcelain...More

No Berlin neighbourhood has undergone a greater change
than Prenzlauer Berg. The artists and non-conformists
that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in
the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip
crowd that frequents the many cafes. Where there were
once run-down houses in the shadow of the Berlin Wall,
there are now designer shops. Beautiful old homes have
been modernized and renovated, and on Sundays,

At aroubd 5pm, there won't be many boothes till opened from the flee market. The karaoke might start around that time, or even around 4pm. 7pm is definitively late, but there is still often party going on till night.
