Fennpfuhl

Fennpfuhl

Fennpfuhl is the location of the first large Plattenbau estate in East Berlin. It served as an experimental field for Marzahn and Hohenschönhausen. But the district also has green corners.

Fennpfuhl is bordered by Storkower Straße in the south, Vulkanstraße in the east, Landsberger Allee and Hohenschönhauser Straße in the north and the district border to Pankow (Oderbruchstraße, Landsberger Allee, S-Bahn) in the west.

Plattenbauten and Anton-Saefkow-Platz

In the 1970s, the development of the former Lichtenberg Nord began. This was the first large, contiguous Plattenbau housing estate in the GDR with Anton-Saefkow-Platz as its social centre. In addition to high-rise residential buildings, there are also shops, a swimming pool, a sports hall and a department store.

Fennpfuhl and Fennpfuhlpark

The Fennpfuhl with the Fennpfuhlpark is also located at Anton-Saefkow-Park. The small local recreation area covers almost ten hectares and is characterised by old and new trees, open meadows, a network of paths and sculptures by various artists. The puddle itself is only one and a half meters deep. A fountain and an artificial water circulation system ensure that the water remains clean and the puddle does not become silted up.

Green spaces and gardens

Green spaces have also been created between the high-rise buildings. The most space is between Rudolf-Seifert-Straße and Paul-Junius-Straße. The distances are even large enough for a football field. In the very north of Fennpfuhl there is an allotment garden. It borders on the Volkspark Prenzlauer Berg and the Sportforum Berlin as the centre of Berlin's competitive sports.
