Parks

Park am Gleisdreieck

In the middle of the capital, Park am Gleisdreieck was created in 2013 from an inaccessible wasteland – an urban open space in the countryside with a variety of uses: Skaters and joggers, walkers and beach volleyball players, picnic and sports fans, nature discoverers and technology enthusiasts make Park am Gleisdreieck a hotspot between Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg and Tempelhof-Schöneberg.

 

Park am Gleisdreieck was awarded the Architecture Prize Berlin in 2013, the Special German Urban Design Prize in 2014 and the German Landscape Architecture Prize in 2015.

Leisure, sport & games

Yoga on the lawn in the morning, then table tennis or boules under shady trees. In between, take a break at the kiosk while the kids let off steam on the playgrounds. Park am Gleisdreieck offers numerous opportunities for young and old to let off steam.

Urban nature

In terms of landscape, Park am Gleisdreieck is characterised by the central, extensive lawn and meadow areas, which are lined by small woods and individual trees and crossed by wide paths. The primary goal of the maintenance and development measures was and is to harmonise the interests of nature conservation and recreational use in Park am Gleisdreieck.
