Nordbahnhof Park is another hidden gem we are featuring for visitors looking to get off of the beaten path. 

Even many locals are not familiar with this concealed, yet conveniently located, urban park that is easy to get to on the U-Bahn.

The park comprises a one kilometre long 13-acre strip filled with woodlands, meadows and walking paths. The perimeter is fenced so you must enter via one of the park gates.

In the 19th century, this plot of land was home to Stettin Railway Station, built in 1842 and expanded in 1876. In 1950, after the war, it was renamed Nordbahnhof Station but was soon closed in 1952. It was subsequently demolished between 1955 and 1962.

Construction of the Berlin Wall isolated this narrow strip of land between two sections of the wall, leaving it a bleak no-man’s-land. Piles of stone are the sole reminder of where the watchtowers stood.

In 1989, soon after the wall came down, nature sprung back to life as if announcing a new beginning. Young Birch trees and tall grasses provided habitat to small mammals and birds.

This spurred plans to turn the space into an urban park, a suggestion first floated in 1995. Nine years later in 2004, the park became a reality.

Besides being a fine place to just come and hide from the commotion of the city, Nordbahnhof Park features a pleasant children’s playground near the center.

An adventure climbing park called MountMitte is situated just outside the south end of the park. It is a separate facility that requires an entrance fee but affords good fun and exercise for all ages.

The park is located a short walk from Schwartzkopffstraße U6 Station.

Rated 4.2 out of 5Park am Nordbahnhof Star Rating

5 Star Rating Looking for coloured nature

2 Star Rating This park looks less maintained and dirty compared to other Berlin parks. Not much to see and graffiti almost everywhere makes the impression not very good.
