Close to Potsdamer Platz, the Park am Gleisdreieck invites you to take a stroll. Visitors can make completely new discoveries in the wild greenery.

For decades, the area between the railway tracks was just an unused urban wasteland. Now the area at Gleisdreieck between Yorckbrücken, Möckernstraße and Tempelhofer Ufer has become the new 26-hectare Park am Gleisdreieck. The area is divided into Westpark and Ostpark by the railway tracks of the S-Bahn. The Westpark has a more urban design and is crossed by the underground railway viaducts, while the Ostpark still allows visitors to experience the former railway history in many places. The part of the park at the southern end, including Monumentenplatz, is known as Flaschenhalspark.

Park am Gleisdreieck: A Park for Everyone

The park is equally attractive for the residents of the neighboring districts, the business people who work at Potsdamer Platz or in the neighboring Museum of Technology, but also for visitors and tourists.

Discoveries on the Former Railway Site

The elevated railway lines running through the park, spacious meadows and the skyline at Potsdamer Platz integrate the recreational area into the inner-city development. Historical traces of railway use such as rusty track remains, old bumper blocks or remnants of switchgear can be found again and again. Pedestrians and cyclists can explore the park on extensive paths.

Gleisdreieck Park was Co-Planned by Local Residents

The landscaped green space is a true people's park, as many citizens, networks and local residents have been campaigning for a park on the former railway site (Anhalter and Potsdam goods station) for decades. They were directly involved and participated in the entire planning process. Pilot projects such as the intercultural gardens and the nature experience area for children were initiated and realised by local residents.
