The 60-hectare Kienberg Park, completed for the IGA 2017, represents a new type of park that develops a great attraction through its diverse references to the surrounding urban and landscape space as well as to the Gärten der Welt and through the diversity of its uses and special unique selling points, such as the 1.5-kilometre-long ropeway.
The nucleus of the park is the 110-metre-high Kienberg. At its peak, it features a 30-metre-high observation structure as a land art visible from afar: The Wolkenhain. The Wolkenhain is modelled on a floating cloud that can be walked on. The Wolkenhain offers a fantastic view of the centre of Berlin as well as of the Brandenburg cultural landscape. In the base of the structure there is a building with an information centre for visitors and a restaurant. Terraces in front of the building offer stunning views of the Kienberg area and the adjacent urban and rural landscape.
At the foot of the Kienberg are the elongated Kienberg terraces on a southern slope. A 300-metre-long bridge structure, the Wuhlesteg, spans the Wuhletal valley as an urban link and connects Hellersdorf with Marzahn.
In the eastern, urban prelude, a new city square with the Belvedere, the Märkischer Garten, the Elektropolis youth playground and the Hellersdorf ropeway valley station with connection to the U5 is located as an entrance to Kienberg Park. With the new Environmental Education centre, opened for the International Garden Exhibition Berlin 2017, an ideal learning location for shared experiences and real-life knowledge transfer within the framework of education for sustainable development has been created at the foot of the Kienberg. In addition, numerous nature conservation projects and a natural experience realm are part of the park concept.
