Like several urban parks in Berlin, Park at Gleisdreieck repurposes space that was employed by a redundant railway transport yard. Today, it is a popular, award-winning, 64-acre park offering locals and visitors an escape from the city offering a variety of outdoor recreation activities.
A favourite among Berliners, it has been honored with several awards: the Berlin architecture prize in 2013, The German urban development special prize in 2014 and the German landscape architecture prize in 2015.
Surrounding residents were highly engaged in the park’s design helping to make sure of its success.
There are plenty of different spaces for all park users include roller skating, skateboarding, basketball, cycling, jogging, walking, picnicking, beach volleyball, and children’s playgrounds.
The Nature Experience section is designed so kids can observe different plants and animals and enjoy fun games of hide-and-go-seek in a natural setting.
Vast open areas of lawn are ideal for an impromptu game of ball, tossing a frisbee, throwing down a blanket and sunbathing, or enjoying a picnic.
Old signaling and railway facilities along with a railway museum maintain a connection to the park’s past.
The Park at Gleisdreieck offers a perfect mix of open green space, forested walking and cycling paths, and outdoor sport facilities without having to leave the city.
While you are visiting the park, consider visiting the German Museum of Technology and Science Center Spectrum located at the northern edge.
