Former death strip – border between east and west
Today meeting place for people from all over the world
Open air culture in the middle of Berlin
Green oasis in the big city
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. Designed by landscape architect Gustav Lange, the first section was completed in 1994.
Freunde des Mauerparks
To that end, we work with other interest groups, various governmental agencies, and the local community. We also listen to the concerns of the park’s users and visitors. We support cultural projects in the park and work to reconcile the broad range of activities that take place here.
We also tackle practical jobs, organizing events, cutting hedges, watering trees or cleaning up the park, for example. There is always something that needs doing, so we welcome newcomers to our association – either as active members or financial supporters.
Diversity & tolerance
is crucial for the city’s microclimate.
Mauerpark has become a well-loved place for people of all ages, from all walks of life and all nationalities to get together and enjoy themselves.
It acts as a home to musicians, per- formers and artists who are eager to experiment, giving them the opportu- nity to present their work beyond the constraints of the commercial scene.
