Visitor monitoring on the Tempelhofer Feld

Since the opening of Tempelhofer Feld in 2010, comprehensive visitor monitoring has been conducted on a regular basis in order to obtain empirically validated, differentiated information on the type and extent of use of the area.

The first survey in 2010 was designed as the beginning of a longitudinal study with the intention of being able to describe the course of the appropriation process of the public open space qualitatively and quantitatively through repeat surveys.

These reports document the diverse uses of the park landscape and describe the characteristics of the various visitor groups in their usage patterns. The monitoring shows possible needs for change or adaptation with regard to existing offers and equipment and, with the help of the results and the knowledge gained from them, provides an important knowledge base for the further development process of Tempelhofer Feld.

The visitor monitoring is intended to provide current, empirically validated information on the changes that have occurred in the meantime in the uses of the future park site. From a quantitative and qualitative point of view, the status of the appropriation process of the area is to be documented and the change tendencies regarding the type and extent of use, the spatial distribution of the uses, the demographic composition of the visitors as well as the evaluation of the offers on the open space are to be shown.

The findings from the surveys conducted are continuously incorporated into the ongoing management of the site.
