TROPICAL ISLAND BERLIN: THE CARIBBEAN IN GERMANY

History of Mauerpark

The history of Mauerpark reveals a diverse past, tracing back to the early 19th century. The area, now Mauerpark, has served various purposes, including military training grounds, a disused freight railway station, and even a soccer field for Berlin’s Hertha BSC.

In 1952, a portion of the grounds transformed into a sports stadium named Friedrich-Ludwig-Jahn-Sportpark, honoring the German “father of gymnastics”. However, during the early 19th century, the park became a dividing line between Wedding in the west (French sector) and Prenzlauer Berg in the east (Soviet sector). This segment of the park, which became a guard post with the wall cutting through it, witnessed the closure of the intercity border and the construction of the Berlin Wall in 1961.

Following the fall of the Wall and the reunification of Germany, the site underwent renovation and officially reopened on November 9, 1994, as Mauerpark (“Wall Park”). Since then, it has undergone several expansions. Adjacent to the Friedrich-Ludwig-Jahn-Sportpark sports complex, a hill preserves remnants of the wall in a 300-meter-long section, now used as a canvas for Berlin graffiti artists.

This monument encapsulates Berlin’s essence, symbolizing that only through unity and open borders could Mauerpark evolve into what it is today: a vast green area attracting thousands of visitors worldwide, where you can see part of the Berlin Wall, and standing as a prominent tourist destination in Berlin.

Every Wednesday throughout the year, you can explore the history of the wall with the free Berlin Wall Guide, gaining insights into what life was like in a divided country during the significant events of the Cold War.

Food at Mauerpark

The food experience at Mauerpark is nothing short of a flavor explosion. The street food and drink stalls that populate the Mauerpark flea market promise delectable dishes at affordable prices, offering a range of options that go beyond the bounds of imagination. The diverse culinary offerings span various nationalities and include exotic creations.

Given its popularity, it’s likely that you’ll encounter queues at many of the food stalls as visitors eagerly await their turn to savor the diverse and tempting fare.

The southern entrance to the park is conveniently located at the intersection of Eberswalder Straße and Bernauer Straße, just 500 meters from the Eberswalder Straße subway station.
