“Berlin is littered with relics of its communist past, with one of the eeriest being Spreepark, where the remains of what was once East Germany’s only amusement park still stand.”
This whole city is one big abandoned communist funfair, lady (or at least big chunks of that Wild East part of town are).
They are everywhere I tell you, all around us, immer und überall, like vampires, or even zombies if you prefer. But maybe that’s just me.
By the way, that park was way cool when it was still running. Really cheesy and schräg. But maybe that’s just me too.
The amusement park’s history is as colorful as its rides once were. The Kulturpark Plaenterwald, as it was known under communism, was also used as a meeting point by youths rebelling against the state’s collectivist system.
