Industrial Nature in Berlin

Natur-Park Schöneberg Sudgelände

Park Sudgelände is a stunning park with abandoned train tracks overgrown by trees and plants.

It is difficult to believe that the park was once one of Germany’s biggest marshalling yards, which closed after the Second World War. Years later it became a protection area.

Most of the train tracks remain as they were: you can find them all over the park. An old steam locomotive, an impressive water tower and the train hall; they are still there. The tracks, with trees growing between them, are literally traces of the past.

For nature lovers this park is a must; you can find lots of rare and threatened plant species. Lucky visitors may encounter a family of foxes.

I think this park is amazing. There is wonderful nature, peace and tranquillity and it is completely off the beaten path.

Tip

There is a sculpture garden and a small amphitheatre, check the schedule for events and theatre performances.
