Germany has a long and significant history of skating culture, from being considered an activity reserved for the anarchists and counter culture of the ’70s and ’80s, to being legitimized into the popular, competitive sport it is today. Skateparks are the playgrounds of skating enthusiasts, from half-pipes, ramps, and rolls, here are some of the best parks to shred and kick-flip in Germany.
This skatepark in Munich offers a space for all skill levels to come and play. The 9,700 square-foot (900m2) facility has a special location between two green parks in an ecological zone of the city, and sets the standard for skate parks in Germany. Its crowning feature is the full-pipe—a wholly closed tube with a diameter of up to 20 feet (6m) and reminiscent of California’s skate parks of the 1970s.
Kap 686 Skateplaza
One of the best skateparks Germany has to offer, Kap 686 is situated near to the Rhine River in Cologne and is a paradise for curb drivers, offering 21,500 square feet (2,000m2) of track exclusively for street skaters. Expect to cruise top-quality, large-format floor slabs, pier pads, and famous beer banks from Barcelona, attracting a warm skating community and epic views of the Rhine River.
A home for the skaters of Stuttgart, Pragfriedhof is an indoor skatepark that is the perfect antidote for a rainy day. The recently-refurbished facility is said to be good for doing flat tricks and stays open from eight in the morning until 10 p.m.
