Once the site of Berlin Wall’s Death Strip, Prenzlauer Berg’s Mauerpark has been transformed into one of the most vibrant locations for showcasing the artistic and musical talent of the city, stimulating cultural interchange, and hosting community gatherings. Aside from being an essential landmark for understanding Berlin‘s history, Mauerpark is host to a load of activities throughout the week. You can wander the Mauerpark flea market, sing karaoke, or try out your graffiti skills. Photographer Sarah Kabatt, of Little Tree Photography, captures these events in action.
Mauerpark Graffiti Lobby
Today, it is legal to spray paint at Mauerpark. Come and try your hand while helping Berlin to maintain its title as graffiti capital of Europe.
Mauerpark Flea Market
Each Sunday you can attend the Mauerpark Flea Market, which is a local favorite. After perusing through the vast selection of artisan crafts and vintage goods, stop by one of the many cafés and restaurants surrounding Mauerpark for a relaxing break from shopping.
On Sundays you can listen to some karaoke at the Mauerpark’s amphitheater. Mauerpark karaoke draws large crowds, and singers are often accompanied by a boombox on a bycicle. This event attracts some of Berlin’s most eccentric and talented street performers, making it an experience you don’t want to miss.
