Private Playgrounds

According to the stipulations of the Berlin Building Code, the builder is required to install and maintain a playground as part of the construction of any building with more than six apartments or more. Under § 8 Sect. 2 of the Building Code, at least 4 sq. m. of usable play area per residential unit should be provided. The size of the area should however amount to at least 50 sq. m., and should be suitable for play by small children. If a construction project with more than seventy-five apartments is planned, the playground should also be suitable for play by older children. Exceptions are only admissible if the intended use of the building makes the presence of children unlikely.

The care and maintenance of private playgrounds is generally the responsibility of the owner.
