were many runners doing their rounds around/through the park, but there were also multiple birthday parties which brought their own tables and decorations - a wonderful atmosphere for a walk or to sit down and watch other people.

One of Berlin's prettiest parks, the city park has beach volleyball courts, an outdoor cinema, jogging paths and even a small mountain with impressive views over Berlin. Full of sexy sunbathers during the summer, it's a great place for a barbecue during the day, or at night there are often underground parties or DJs who set up in the park's interior.

Volkspark is a sprawling green mecca planted between the borders of the neighborhoods of Friedrichshain and Prenzlauerberg. It contains an ornate "Fairy Tale Fountain", lake with swans and monuments to nearly every war fought in 19th and 20th century Berlin, like the towering "Memorial to Polish Soldiers and German Anti-Fascists". It's a serene place to take a stroll and absorb local history.

First to Review

Lovely park straddling the border between Friedrichshain and Prenzlauer Berg. It's the oldest in Berlin, and one of the largest (though dwarfed in size by #1, the Tiergarten). One of the main features of the park is the charming Märchenbrunnen (Fairy Tale Fountain) at the main entrance to the park.

A note of history and culture: The park also features two hills, which were made by the DDR government after WWII - these were made by taking much of the rubble of bombed out Berlin, piling it up and then covering it over. A bombed out bunker makes up much of the large hill, which is known as "Große Bunkerberg" or "Mont Klamott" (rubbish mountain). Fans of German culture should also take note: not only was a scene from the East German classic (and excellent) film 'The Legend of Paul and Paula" was shot here, 'Mont Klamott' is also the name of a classic (and also excellent) early 1980's song and album by East German band Silly.
