Britzer Garten

The Britzer Garten is a large park in the south of Berlin, named after Britz, a neighborhood of the borough of Neukölln. It was constructed for the Bundesgartenschau 1985, in order to provide a new landscape park to the citizens in the southeast of West-Berlin, who were at that time cut off from the surrounding countryside; the park covers an area of 90 hectares and offers nature and garden architecture, playgrounds and hills as well as multicolored flower patches, matching the particular season and extensive lawns for any leisure activities. Architecture and art play a vital role in the park. Along the restaurant at the "Kalenderplatz" the largest sundial of Europe and a solar system walkway, measuring 99 metres in diameter can be seen, it was planned by Jasper Halfmann and Klaus Zillich. The "Café am See" was built in 1985 by the architect Engelbert Kremser, using his earthwork technology; the "Britzer Museumsbahn" railroad, runs on a narrow-gauge track through the Britzer Garten. Some engines and cars are remakes of historical models.

Many special events take place there, including concerts sometimes accompanied by fireworks. The main entrance is situated near the park cemetery in Neukölln; the sculpture Fette Henne, artwork in the Britzer Garten by artist Rolf Szymanski is at the entrance. Visitors are charged a small entrance fee at the gates. Dogs and bicycles are not allowed; the Britzer Garten belongs to the Grün Berlin Park und Garten GmbH company, owned by the city of Berlin. Other places of attraction run by this company are the Britzer Mühle, the Erholungspark Marzahn and the Natur-Park Schöneberger Südgelände.
