Art, Nature, Technology

Wild nature, long-forgotten technology and works of art

In the Berlin district of Tempelhof, a former railways shunting yard has been turned into a unique natural landscape while retaining striking relics of the steam train era.

After the railyard closed, a "primeval forest" grew upon the 18-hectare site. It was the actions of many engaged citizens and financial support from the Allianz Umweltstiftung (environmental foundation) that enabled this ‘enchanted place’ to be opened to the public.

EXPO 2000 declared the Natur-Park to be a "worldwide project".
