One of the best things about Berlin is its abundance of green spaces. From picnicking and sunbathing, to jogging, paddle boating, and dog walking, these areas can be used for a diversity of purposes. Some parks even make excellent venues for pickup games and sports of all kinds including football, frisbee, and slack lining. Yet, not all parks are created equally in this regard. Here are the best places for pickup games in Berlin.
With its legendary Soviet War Memorial, riverside promenade and winding bike paths, Treptower is a beacon of outdoor fun for anyone living on Berlin’s lower east side. While many might not realize it, the park also contains smaller pockets at its western side that are often virtually empty, making them perfect for a fun pickup game with friends. Frisbee, for instance, is a popular pastime of the locals at Treptower. Furthermore, the park contains ping-pong tables and plenty of trees for slack lining — if those appear more enticing than traditional field sports.
