With its 17 hectares, the museum park is an interesting area for the whole family and is wonderfully suited for a day trip to the gates of Berlin

Almost all historic Berlin and Brandenburg buildings, Brandenburg Gate, Sanssouci Palace, Berlin Olympic Stadium and many more, were built with limestone from Rüdersdorf. More than 750 years ago, people began to quarry and burn the limestone.

Since the 17th century at the latest, Rüdersdorf has been the most important supplier of building materials for Berlin. To this day, the open pit mine remains active. The cement plant exports Rüdersdorf cement to many European countries.

Surrounded by lakes, canals and forests, all kinds of sports can be practiced here, even with rental equipment such as SUP boards.
