About
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.

We visited around 4pm, after visiting a nearby Vietnamese restaurant. It was a warm, lovely day, but it was not too busy at all. I found the area fascinating. There were interesting characters just “hanging out”. We walked in the park a ways, then climbed the slight incline to walk back to where we started out, along Bernauer str. Along the walk on the hill along the wall, we got to see several groups of graffiti artists doing their thing. Very cool, and very impressive. We had a short, but very nice visit to the Mauerpark. I would certainly return.

This area in Berlin is worth visiting. It's located in Berlin-Prenzlauerberg and can easily reached on foot or with the U-Bahn. The place itself is nothing special, just an average one, however, you definitely have to include it in your "Berlin to-do-list". It's a "must see" because you can find whatever your heart desires: a great flew market, food trucks (I can recommend the burritos) and an open mic every Sunday. Comfortably come to the end of the day, having a glass of wine or a beer in one of the plenty bars in the surrounding streets.

Not suitable for winter, felt like an existential disaster painted in dull shades of grey despair. Perhaps summer will be better.

You never know what life brings - a former death strip between two walls DDR built is now a relaxed and very friendly area.
I would recommend coming here to relax after visitng the Berlin Wall memorial museum (must see, read that review) which is just some 15 min down the Bernauer St.
There are many street performers along with street food, and you'll see some remnants of the original wall.

On a midweek evening the park was more or less deserted and there was no grass, just a barren sandy waste. Wondered why we had come; maybe it's better on Sundays. Interesting graffiti, though, one actually being done as we walked around.

We had a fun time walking about Mauerpark. The markets and street food are interesting, we picked up great Kurrywurst in one of the places.

You can buy alcohol in the market but a lot of people were bringing drink in with them to drink.

The highlight as most other reviews state is the bear pit karaoke on Sunday, thoroughly entertaining, wild and a must see if it's on when you're there.

The one mistake we made was walking round the stadium as we thought there was something on there... Turned out it was just a football match of a local Berlin team that play there - seems obvious but we didn't know! It was free for entry, so if you're wanting to watch some football you'd maybe be interested, otherwise it's an unnecessary diversion!

I've been to Berlin several times. The first time I was in this park was 2008. My last visit was 2019. This is hands down my favorite thing to do on a Sunday in Berlin. Walk through the market sipping a beer. Get some street food from the food trucks. After the market wander through the park and see various activities going on. Basketball, karaoke, magicians, dancers. You will see all shades of life in this park and is such a cool vibe.
