The historically listed green space bears the name of the great naturalist Alexander von Humboldt. The construction of this public park began on 14 September 1869, Humboldt's 100th birthday, and was finished in 1876.
From the bunker debris resulting from the war, there emerged the toboggan-run and the Humboldthöhe hill, which now serves as a viewing platform. Through the efforts of the organisation Berliner Unterwelten e.V., parts of the destroyed turret have been made accessible. During the summer, guided tours are offered. In the winter, about 250 bats live in these rooms, including six different kinds of species. The anti-aircraft tower is thus the third largest bat hibernation site in Berlin.
The northern wall of the "large" bunker as well as the wall of the "small" bunker both fall under the jurisdiction of the German Alpine Club’s (DAV) Berlin Section and are used for sport climbing by advanced climbers.
For those of you who are in the mood for something more easygoing : on top of the Humboldthain hill, there is a vineyard, from whose annual harvest about 200 bottles of wine are produced. The capital city also produces its own Humboldthainer sparkling wine from the vines. It isn’t available to buy; instead it is only given away by the Berlin District Office on special occasions.
