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.

Hirschgarten Skatepark

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.

From pyramids, bowls, banks and ledges, to wall rides, hips, and habbas, this indoor/outdoor skatepark in Berlin really has it all. The wooden park boasts a huge street course and a concrete mini-ramp. Packed with fun and healthy competition, if you bail on the target spot you have to pay the fine of buying everyone in session a beer.

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.

Another mega-park in Cologne, the crowning feature of North Brigade is a 8,400 square-foot (780m2) bowl designed by Danish skate legend Rune Glifberg. The outdoor park offers skaters and BMX riders a course with many obstacles to practice and show off tricks, as well as a skating academy for those who want to master their heel flips and ollies.

Located in Germany’s capital city, Mellowpark is Europe’s largest outdoor sports park especially suited for skateboarders and BMX bikers. Originally built as a cultural youth hub, its 646,000 square feet (60,000m2) makes for a sporting extravaganza where you can even stay over for the night. Grungy and full of graf, it’s Berlin’s bonafide skating institution.


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.
