Von Gletschereis und Gummistiefeln (Of glacial ice and rubber boots)

Permanent exhibition on the history of the Kienberg

On the Wolkenhain the new exhibition "Von Gletschereis und Gummistiefeln (Of glacial ice and rubber boots)" takes you on a geological journey through time through the past of the Kienberg.


Hellersdorfer Str. 159 12619  Berlin

From the lowest layer, shaped by the Ice Age, to the formation of the Berlin Urstrom Valley in the course of the melting of the ice masses (this is how the little river Wuhle, which today shapes the landscape, was created), to the ruins of the post-war period, to the fillings from the construction period of the GDR large housing estates Marzahn and Hellersdorf, to the greening by "Subbotniks" (voluntary work assignments in GDR times modelled on the Soviet Union) and the International Garden Exhibition in 2017.

Whether mammoths in Marzahn-Hellersdorf, glacier ice at Alexanderplatz or bathing pleasure in ice age lakes - in short episodes you will learn - in texts, pictures, audio material and touchpads - a lot about how the ice age shaped Kienberg and Berlin.

Visitors to the Wolkenhain will be offered an additional offer in the form of the exhibition. So everyone can take some time for the history of the region over a cup of coffee and cake and a breathtaking view over the panorama of the Wuhle Valley.
