Mauerpark - In A Berlin Minute (Week 276)

Mauerpark - In A Berlin Minute (Week 276)

The Mauerpark (Wall Park) in Berlin, Germany, is the place to be on a Sunday - if you like people watching, flea market shopping, outdoor drinking, street musicians, street art, karaoke and hanging out with your friends. Well, I do!

So when Scott and I were in Berlin during week 275, we met a few of our local friends in the park - even those who have no love for Sundays at Mauerpark. A big thanks to everyone who came out to hang with us that day and night and during our brief fly-by Berlin visit. I love you all so much!

Mauerpark is located (just steps from my apartment) in the Prenzlauer Berg district. Its name derives from the fact that it used to be part of the Berlin Wall death zone (then on the border or East Berlin's Prenzlauer Berg and West Berlin's Wedding). Today it has two bars that serve food and drinks (Mauersegler and Schoenwetter), an outdoor amphitheater that hosts the Bearpit Karaoke and semi-permanent stalls that house the Mauerpark Flohmarkt - both only on Sundays.
