Wuhlheide park

A forest park with a recreation centre for children and Berlin-Brandenburg in miniature

The Wuhlheide park is an extensive recreation and amusement park complete with a miniature railway, open-air stage, playground areas and a recreational centre, which provides a variety of activities for children and young people alike.

The park was created between 1919 and 1932 based on plans drawn up by the director of the Treptower garden Ernst Harrich Treptower. By establishing Wuhlheide park, forest and parkland were connected to one another. In so doing, the various needs and demands on the use of an urban forest were taken into account. The various areas full of trees and the garden-like aspects of the park were meant for those seeking quiet relaxation. At the same time, areas for more active forms of recreation were also included. Thus, in addition to sport and playing fields, playgrounds and sport areas, a dance floor, a pool, a toboggan run and a swimming pool were also built. At the end of the nineties, the gradual reconstruction of the public park began. The swimming pool has been elaborately refurbished in the style of the twenties and the former military sites have now been renatured.

The park is also being placed on Berlin’s list of historic monuments. A model park of Berlin-Brandenburg is also located here. Nestled in a landscaped park, which emulates the characteristics of the region, visitors have the chance to observe more than 60 models of famous sights of both Berlin and Brandenburg. All models have been created on a scale of 1:25. The model park is constantly adding to its miniature attractions.
