For over 50 years the Ostpark forest grew and flourished thanks to the closing of the railyards. It now impresses visitors not only with its wealth of flora and fauna but with its many technical relics, such as the old north-south platforms and platform trenches. In its core area are valuable dry grasslands that are home to many ground-breeding birds. Its intersecting paths provide a direct east-west link as well as impressive views and many opportunities to observe nature in the park.
