A Visit to Berlin’s Abandoned Spreepark
To view more photos and videos from Spreepark, explore the Spreepark Berlin / Kulturpark Plänterwald location page.
Just outside Berlin lies Spreepark, an abandoned East German amusement park. Kulturpark Plänterwald, later known as Spreepark, opened in 1969 and at its peak was host to over a million visitors a year. In 2001, however, only 400,000 people visited the park and it was closed down the following year.
Today, locals and tourists alike risk the trespassing fine to view and capture Spreepark’s headless dinosaur sculptures, roller coaster cars filled with leaves and Ferris wheel that spins slowly in the wind. Maxim Mestovsky (@mestovsky), a user experience designer from Minsk, Belarus, recently visited Spreepark on a trip to Berlin and shared his experience on Instagram. “You have to take a train through a mountain and over a lake then climb a fence to get into the park, but when you do, it’s beautiful,” he says. “The old Ferris wheel creaks, abandoned boats are strewn about. I don’t understand why they don’t sell tickets still! Maybe that’s the charm of the park.”
Marco Polo describes a bridge, stone by stone.
“But which is the stone that supports the bridge ?” Kublai Khan asks.
“The bridge is not supported by one stone or another,” Marco answers, “but by the line or the arch that they form.”
Kublai Khan remains silent, reflecting. Then he adds: “Why do you speak to me of the stones ? It is only the arch that matters to me.”
Polo answers: “Without stones there is no arch.”
