Being a horse racing tragic, I first attended a Race Meeting at the Rehnnbahn Hoppegarten in 1991 and attended again in 1996 and 2008. It was very primitive on my first visit which was only just over 2 years after the Berlin Wall came down.
While it has been considerably improved,it is still not up to the standard of most of the Provincial race tracks in Australia and unless you pay for the priority area it is a steep climb to the top of the Grandstand which is more or less in original condition and has no escalators or elevators.. There are however two new stands under construction and it is pleasant to stand on the expansive lawn in front of the main Grandstand.
No public restaurant, but many fast food wagons with German Specialties. If you enjoy horse racing this is a good day out and easy to get to by S-Bahn

First time in Berlin, we wondered if it was worth the bother of trying to get to Hoppegarten races, thinking it would be a lot of trouble getting there.It was rather easy! straight through on line S5 to Hoppegarten (end of the line) and then a mere 300 yards from the station. (you need a zone c ticket on the train)
Throughout the day there was a German band on in the bandstand and there was a very relaxed feel ,thankfully no stag do's or gangs on the lash.We paid 10 euros to get in, it was 25 to get a seat in the grandstand.It was easy to get a drink or food between races and the viewing was great as it was not that crowded.
It was a lovely course surrounded with woodland , well worth a visit
