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.

Berlin's best place on sunny sundays. Flea market, mostly local artist selling handmade souvenirs. Great international food court with extraordinary dishes. Nice, comfy bars to chill. Huge karaoke singer from all around the world in the afternoon at the amphitheater. Live-Musuic everywhere in the park.

One of the most characteristic things you can do in Berlin. Some people don t like it because they say it is touristic.. i love it! You should definitely visit on a warm Sunday!

Let me start with saying that I did not object to the people enjoying a Sunday afternoon at this park. Everyone was pleasant with no offensive behavior. I did object to the unkempt, ungroomed and trashed appearance of the park. If everyone enjoys it so...More

It's a Sunday favorite when most shops and business are closed. Crazy big flea market, tons of people grilling, performing, drinking, smoking and dancing. Karaoke happens in early afternoon at the amphitheater. Dusty on dry days, but you will find food and even (pay) restrooms....More

This park is a very nice park but whilst we were there a demonstration was going on which made us very wary of our surroundings and we could not enjoy the area as we would have wished

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,
