Monbijoupark

Former palace park with recreational facilities

On the site of today's Monbijoupark, between Oranienburger Straße and the banks of the Spree, the rococo Monbijou Palace once stood. It was demolished in 1959. A recreational park with a children's swimming pool was constructed on the site in the early 1960s.

A recreational park with a children's swimming pool was constructed on the site in the early 1960s. After further transformations in the years 2006 to 2007, the Monbijoupark was given a nine-meter wide promenade and green spaces, wonderful for sunbathing or for ball games. Grilling is also generally allowed, except when it is temporarily banned due to an increased fire risk. From the "Spreebalkon" or the summer beach bar you can gaze at the water and let your thoughts drift. In the amphitheatre at the edge of Monbijoupark, productions of the Hexenkessel Hoftheaters and Monday concerts have taken place regularly for the last few years.

Monbijoupark also be easily reached from the Museum Island, Hackeschen Markt and the Lustgarten.
