Line & Stations
With its east-west routing, the ropeway serves a dual purpose: on the one hand as a barrier-free means of transport for visitors to the Gardens of the World as well as the Wolkenhain viewing platform and the natural bobsled run on the Kienberg, and on the other hand as a means of transport between the districts of Marzahn and Hellersdorf with a direct connection to the "Kienberg (Gärten der Welt)" subway station. The subway line 5 takes you to Berlin's center without changing trains, directly to Alexanderplatz and the main train station.
The 1.5-kilometer-long line has three stations: In addition to the two valley stations "Kienbergpark" in Hellersdorf and "Gärten der Welt" in Marzahn, there is also the intermediate station "Wolkenhain" on the Kienberg.
The boarding facilities
During the realization of the ropeway, great importance was attached to the special architectural design of the stations, which is as close to "nature" as possible. This is visible, among other things, in the greening of the roofs. The stations were designed by Kolb Ripke Architekten from Berlin.
The "Gärten der Welt" station houses a cabin station where all the cabins are stored together after the end of operation.
The station on the Kienberg was also designed to be very landscape-oriented as an entry/exit/transit station. The adjacent trees are higher than the facility. There is a roof only in the boarding area to protect passengers from the weather.
