Overview
More
Situated in what was once the militarized “death strip” of the Berlin Wall (or Mauer) that divided East and West, Mauerpark is now a social, cultural, and artistic center of the city. Today’s Mauerpark is on land that ran between the two parallel walls separating East and West Berlin. With its observation towers, attack dogs, trip wires and armed guards primed to shoot anyone trying to escape to the West, it was known as the “death strip.” The park dates back to the early 1990s when local residents, noticing the rapid spread of self-seeded vegetation on the sandy strip of land, began planting trees and calling for the creation of a park. As a result, the city’s politicians included Mauerpark in the city’s bid to host the 2000 Olympics. Although Berlin’s bid for the Olympics was not successful, the plea to build Mauerpark was. In Mauerpark you can take a stroll, lie around, read, play on the swings, play boules and basketball, picnic in the birch grove, get involved in community gardening, go to the Rainbow Playground with the kids, watch musicians and performers in the amphitheatre, have a drink and a bite to eat in the outdoor cafes or hunt for bargains at the Sunday flea market.

It is a big market where everything is sold. Funny thing is that there is also live music made by unknown bands. Nearby are however striking places that played a role in the Berlin Wall

Went here every Sunday during the summer. It's an awesome place for the markets but also for the amazing crowd that go to Karaoke. Incredible atmosphere, definitely go here.

visited for the fleamarket as it was our first day in Berlin and the local area. It was wet and muddy and not much better on another day. Its not a pretty park but is probably a good sports stadium.

Sunny sundays there are the most amazing. Feeling like a hippie. For everyone. Nature lovers to big business people. The flea market is so cool. The karaoke is great. But the jams everywhere on the field are just... THE BEST

From other reviews, we were expecting something like Camden. What a disappointment. It appeared to be like a jumble sale outdoors selling tat plus the usual mix of food stalls. The site was water-logged and it hadn't rained much, so the site must be unusable...More

No Berlin neighborhood has undergone a greater change
than Prenzlauer Berg. The artists and non-conformists
that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in
the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip
crowd that frequents the many cafes. Where there were
once run-down houses in the shadow of the Berlin Wall,
there are now designer shops. Beautiful old homes have
been modernized and renovated, and on Sundays,
