Mauerpark is a long narrow park renowned locally for its huge Sunday flea market and live entertainment, a tradition that draws 1000s of locals every Sunday.

The atmosphere is lively and family-friendly.

Similar to Nordbahnhof Park, Mauerpark developed inside the space between two sections of the former Berlin Wall, a dreadful space where attempting to cross meant almost certain death. The park opened in 1994 on the 5th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.

An 800 metre section of the wall remains as a monument and has turned into a canvas for graffiti artists, a significant part of the city’s urban culture.

The huge Friedrich Ludwig Jahn Sportpark, which consists of an outdoor stadium with covered stands, several more sports fields, and tennis courts flanks the east side of the park.

On Sundays, the park really comes to life with the outdoor musicians and flea market.

The famed Mauerpark outdoor flea market sets up in the southwest corner on Sundays .

The mostly private vendors sell a vast assortment of unique new and used merchandise - antiques, vinyl records, memorabilia from the GDR, clothing, bicycles, crafts and more. This is a good place to find some unique souvenirs.

Food stalls offer up tempting dishes from around the world. The choices are nearly endless.

Another tradition Mauerpark has become known for is Karaoke in the amphitheater every Sunday afternoon. This has been an ongoing event since when Joe Hatchiban started bringing a portable Karaoke system.

Weather permitting, he sets up by 3 pm offering a chance to sing in front of a few hundred cheering people, or just join in and cheer the other performers.

There are plenty of other activities to enjoy in Mauerpark, especially during the rest of the week when it is much quieter.
