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.

Such a good place to go. With its wimpy trees and anaemic lawn, Mauerpark is hardly your typical leafy oasis. Enjoy your time there.

The Berlin Wall used to run alongside this park, now it is just a huge city park with lots of sports activities. Well-used by the locals.

Prenzlauer Berg
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the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip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.
