Spreepark

abandoned16

Spreepark began its life in the late 1960s in East Berlin as Kulturpark Plänterwald, the GDR’s only amusement park. After the fall of the Berlin Wall, Spreepark was privatised. Then came turbulent times involving bankruptcy and drug smuggling which led to its closure in 2001. These days it’s home to the odd urban explorer eager to surreal photos of rotting fiberglass swans or overgrown roller coasters.  The only way in is to break in.
