Spreepark

Spreepark is an abandoned amusement park in the north of the Plänterwald in the Berlin district Treptow-Köpenick. One of east Berlins more off-beat attractions, the Spreepark was once the only amusement park in the GDR but was abandoned in 2002. Spreepark is a weird and wonderful part of Berlin’s communist past. The park is closed to the public (you can see some of it from the perimeter fence), however it is rumoured that the owners gives tours on Sunday mornings as so many people try to enter the park illegally.

    Its a magical, if ramshackle, place – frogs now colonise the logflume; the mouth of the rollercoaster is sprouting foliage and the ferris wheel stands perfectly intact. For a long time the funfair was out of bounds, though popular after dark with urban explorers and local teenagers out for an adventure. (Helen Pitt, The Guardian)
