Mauerpark

The Mauerpark is a park in Prenzlauer Berg occupying an area formerly enclosed by the Berlin Wall. Bordered on one side by the Friedrich Ludwig Jahn Stadium, it was quickly adopted by the residents of the surrounding area following the fall of the wall as a park. This developed into a movement for the area's official dedication as a park, and in 1994 the land officially became the Mauerpark.
