Inhabitable public spaces

Berlin faces the major challenge of meeting a complex diversity of individual needs as well as the collective ecological challenges of climate change in the future. In a growing metropolis, open spaces with social and ecological functions are an elementary component for a lively and inhabitable city. With the "Charta für das Berliner Stadtgrün", the senate, together with the citizens, has developed a voluntary commitment that underlines the importance of public spaces for future urban development and stipulates their preservation and expansion in the coming years.

As an innovative, community-oriented municipal company and service provider, Grün Berlin has been developing, building and operating inhabitable public spaces for Berliners and guests of the city for 25 years that meet the requirements of the charter. From the ideas we develop for our city together with the people right up to implementation, we shape a Berlin that meets a wide variety of interests and the social and ecological needs.

In order to meet the diverse challenges of a growing city and to unite the different demands on urban open spaces, Platz der Luftbrücke will be redesigned in the coming years into a livable place to stay with a showcase character in sustainable urban development - for and with the residents and Berliners.

Park am Gleisdreieck

The Park am Gleisdreieck is an urban open space in the countryside with a variety of uses. Skaters and joggers, walkers and beach volleyball players, picnickers and sports fans, nature explorers and technology enthusiasts make the former railroad site a hotspot between Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg and Tempelhof-Schöneberg.
