Visitor regulations

The Park am Gleisdreieck is a public green space and subject to the provisions of the State of Berlin’s “Grünanlagengesetz” law governing green spaces in its current legally-binding form.

Extract from the “Grünanlagengesetz” (as of November 2015)

Section 6 Use of green and open spaces

1. Public green and recreational facilities may only be used in ways consistent with the nature of individual spaces and  facilities and their purpose. Usage may not damage, soil, or otherwise impair plants and equipment or endanger or unreasonably disturb other visitors. The following is in particular prohibited:

  • Making noise that unreasonably disturbs other visitors,
  • using slingshots, catapults and projectile launchers of any kind or guns,
  • allowing dogs, apart from guide dogs for the blind and dogs accompanying the disabled, or other pets to run loose, bringing them into children’s playgrounds, onto ball courts or sunbathing lawns, or letting them swim,
  • lighting or maintaining fires,
  • driving vehicles, apart from motorised mobility aids, on green and recreational spaces or parking or leaving them or trailers there.

2. Activities such as cycling, skateboarding, ball games, swimming, boating, riding and barbecuing are permitted only in designated areas. Local authorities are obliged to designate spaces for particular uses to an appropriate extent, as far as this is possible, taking urban environment and planning issues into account, assessing and balancing users’ various entitlements to use the space, and taking the protection of the health of people and of the environment into consideration. 

3. Dog owners and walkers must ensure that their dog does not soil public green and recreational spaces and must immediately remove dog excrement. This does not apply to blind dog walkers.

4. Local authorities can restrict certain types of usage and opening hours and regulate usage by imposing regulations and prohibitions applying to green spaces and recreational facilities or parts of them.

5. Use of public green and recreational spaces extending beyond the purview of Paragraph 1 requires a permit from the relevant authorities. A permit can be issued in individual cases if prevailing public interest requires it and any consequences of use will be remedied. In deciding to issue a permit, the question of whether carrying out activities in another location would have less impact on the space should be taken into consideration. Permits may be subject to conditions. Activities may not leave rubbish. Rectifying of consequences of use shall be regarded as ensured when the applicant lodges a sum of money with the authority issuing the permit or supplies a bank guarantee equivalent to the expected costs of such rectification. Fees can be charged for usage. The economic benefits of usage must be taken into account in determining fees.

6. The relevant authority for the purposes of Paragraph 5 is the local government. For permits affecting the entire city as defined in S. 3 Para. 1 of the law governing administrative competencies (Allgemeines Zuständigkeitsgesetz, 22nd of July 1996 - GVBl. S. 302, 472) the relevant authority is the Senate Department responsible for green spaces. 

Please note,

The Park am Gleisdreieck is in the ED-R 146 no-fly zone enforced over Berlin’s government district (Regierungsviertel). Flying model aircraft and drones etc. is prohibited here.
