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.

Recommended by a local friend, Mauer Park is a surprisingly cool place to be on a Sunday afternoon. It was the last day of my trip - after all the history and galleries, relaxing myself here with a bottle of Berliner Kindl Weisse was the...More

Lots happening on sundays here. Karaoke in front of thousands of gently appreciative spectators seated on the hillside. Many kiosks w food beer antiques lively creative jewelry. I have NEVER experienced a more gentle chill public event and want to return

Went here on a Wednesday visit and a poor choice of day. Got U2 line getting off at Eberswalder station then about 700m walk to park. Park was quiet bar for students kicking a ball, graffiti spraying or sunning themselves. No buzz at all. We...More

OK this might sound a bit strange, but alongside a visit to the Jewish Museum, spending Sunday at Mauerpark was the highlight of my 4-day visit to Berlin. If you like popular music, this is NOT TO BE MISSED! There is a semi-interesting outdoor market...More

a large park with diverse attractions: stadion, playgrounds, picnic areas - unfrotunately, sometimes it gets very dirty and crowded

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,
