The Park am Gleisdreieck

A park for guests, tourists, and Berliners

The Park am Gleisdreieck is a paradise for explorers, sportspeople, hikers and anyone who loves wide open spaces right in the middle of the city’s hustle and bustle. The extensive meadows include areas with wild vegetation and remnants of historic railway systems on the site of the former freight depots of the Potsdamer and Anhalter railway stations.

Here you can jog, ride bike and skate or play beach volleyball, boules, ping-pong or ball games. Or just relax! The wide meadows, clusters of old trees and quiet paths are a great place to recharge your batteries after a busy day or a big night out.

The Park am Gleisdreieck is “the capital’s most beautiful green space” according to DER SPIEGEL. The federation of German landscape architects came to the same conclusion, awarding the park’s design first prize in the German landscape architecture award in 2015. – Congratulations!

This park is one of the city’s gems. And the FLOTTWELL BERLIN Hotel is right next door!

Art and culture in the neighborhood

The FLOTTWELL BERLIN is located in the cultural center of the city:

The unique structure of the Berlin Philharmonie designed by Hans Sharoun isn’t just home to the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra and the Berlin Jazz Festival; internationally renowned artists and orchestras can also be seen here. Next door is the Chamber Music Hall, also designed by Hans Scharoun.

Among Berlin’s most prestigious museums is the Neue Nationalgalerie designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. The exhibits on display here are among the finest in the world. Unfortunately, the building is closed for repairs until 2018. But the view is still unobstructed by construction fences, and it’s well worth a walk to catch a glimpse of it.

Right next door is the Kulturforum with its Old Masters Gallery, Arts and Crafts Museum, Prints Gallery and Musical Instruments Museum.

The German Museum of Technology is one of Berlin’s best-loved museums. On display are airplanes, ships, locomotives and other amazing achievements from the cultural history of technology, such as a replica of the first computer in the world built by Konrad Zuse, the great technological visionary.

Berlin’s arts scene got a new lease on life after 1990. Initially centered around the famous Auguststraße, new galleries are now springing up in the Lützowviertel and especially along Potsdamer Straße.
