Because of minimal upkeep, the 72-acre People’s Park established  on a small hill in Prenzlauer Berg is more wild or natural than most city parks. It’s a perfect location to enjoy a peaceful wilderness walk.

It is customarily quiet here. You will not have to compete with throngs of tourists, or even locals.

A comprehensive network of pleasant walking trails guide you through dense woodlands and a few open grassy areas.

The hilltop location helps provide a cardio workout and a rewarding view.

A large open area is popular for tobogganing when it snows.

History

The hill in Prenzlauer Berg People’s Park was created with debris from Alexanderplatz transported and dumped here following the war. In 1967 it was landscaped by planting a dense crop of European perennial trees. The trail network was laid out in 1969. 50 years later the trees provide a dense woodland.
