Mauerpark is a park in Berlin located in what was once the death strip zone of a section of the Berlin Wall in the Prenzlauer Berg neighborhood. The name translates literally as “Wall Park.” After the wall came down and East and West were reunited, this park became a popular recreation spot. People gather here to play sports with their friends, to enjoy performances by jugglers and musicians, or simply to hang out with friends. On Sundays, Mauerpark is home to one of Berlin's most popular flea markets. Both locals and tourists come to the flea market to browse through the clothing, shoes, bicycles, vinyl records, and various trinkets.
Another big draw are the Sunday afternoon karaoke sessions that take place at the amphitheater from spring until fall and start at 3 p.m. Remaining sections of the Berlin Wall at the Jahn Stadium now serve as a canvas for graffiti artists. Near the park, visitors will find the Bernauer Straße Memorial, an outdoor museum that details the history of the Berlin Wall and how it affected this neighborhood. There are also several restaurants and cafes in the area near Mauerpark, as well as a few food stalls throughout the Sunday flea market.
Mauerpark is located where Bernauer Straße turns into Eberswalder Straße. To get there, take either the U2 to the Eberswalder Straße Ubahn station or the U8 to the Bernauer Straße station.
