Former railway premises are fertile ground in Berlin for parks. Gleisdreieck and Nordbahnhof are two examples, but the Schöneberger Südgelände is the best. It closed for its original purpose in 1952, thus nature had the chance for decades to regain territory without too much human interference.
By now, elevated pathways have been installed, that save the vulnerable ecology on one hand and on the other hand emphasize the history of this land through it’s rusty colours and iron materials. Highlight is the 4000 square meter huge former locomotive hall, used nowadays by artists for plays and other activities.
