Mauerpark, located in the Prenzlauer district in Berlin, remains to be one of the most well-known places to visit among the youth residents of Berlin. This linear public park attracts musicians, nature and art enthusiasts, basketball players, jugglers, and in general, people who are looking to have a fun and relaxing time.
‘Mauerpark’ is the German word for ‘Wall park’ and it is named so due to the history that traces back to the time when it used to be a part of the former Berlin Wall (the concrete and guarded barrier that used to separate West Berlin from the East Berlin and East Germany between 1961 to 1989). An 800-meter strip of the Berlin Wall still stands in the park, serving as a monument, and is now used by graffiti artists to showcase their artwork.
The park has expanded a lot since its establishment; stretching up to 37 acres of land (construction underway and expected to be completed in 2019). It serves to be an ideal spot for people looking to have a relaxing yet fun time in Berlin; with all the fun and exuberant activities that take place in this park.

The Flea Market at Mauerpark (referred to as Flohmarkt am Mauerpark in German) is extremely popular among the Berliners as well as the tourists. Taking place every Sunday since 2004, this market hosts grid stalls with private salespersons selling a variety of items ranging from second-hand clothes, old vinyl records, CDs, jewellery, vintage bags, and many other nicknacks. Furthermore, visitors may also find some antiques and hidden fortunes at the furniture tent situated at the Flea market.
The Bearpit Karaoke show is a delightful event that takes place at the circular stage area enclosing an amphitheatre in the Mauerpark, sited on the hillside right across the basketball court of the park, every Sunday afternoon. Hundreds of Berliners and tourists venture to this place just to have their 15 minutes of fame; rendering this place extremely crowded from spring until autumn even before the event starts. The amphitheatre echoes with the sound of music and cheers and boos of the crowd depending on whether they like the music or not.
One can spot several musicians, playing various instruments and singing their hearts out, scattered throughout the park. Dancing freely to the rhythms of live music in this open space often turns out to be a pretty fantastic experience for locals and tourists alike.
Mauerpark has half a court of a basketball court located in it, and many locals come here to play the sport with their friends all year around.
One can enjoy a number of Berlin’s traditional dishes that are available here in the best collection of food trucks and stalls at the Mauerpark. These dishes range from the incredibly delicious German sausages, Mexican tacos, Peruvian anticucho, ever-favourite ice creams, and many more.
The remains of the Berlin Wall that stand at 800 meters currently in Mauerpark is now decorated with inches thick of graffiti art made by hundreds of artists who have visited the park in the past. This street art is ever-changing with artists adorning the walls that are already showcasing past artworks; making it a great source of admiration among the visitors.
With various inexpensive provision stores located near the park, one can enjoy their day grilling a meal, relaxing and having fun with their friends and family. Grilling is not something that many parks in the city allow their visitors to do, making Mauerpark the go-to place for the ones who enjoy the activity.
