Berlin Nature Park Südgelände

The Südgelände used to be a switch yard in Berlin-Tempelhof. The yard was closed in 1952 and left undisturbed leaving nature to take over. The plants and animals spread out.

Did you know, that…?

…After a residents initiative the Südgelände was designated a landscape and nature protection area, following a decision in 1970 to reopen the site for locomotives.
