Lost Places – Spreepark Berlin – cooler than Chernobyl?

The Spreepark was once the only amusement park in Berlin, opened all year.
Built in the GDR (DDR) in 1969 around 1.7 millions people per year visited Spreepark from 1969 till 1989. At that time it was officially named VEB Kulturpark Plänterwald (Cultural park Plänterwald) and Kulti by the people. The 45m high Ferris wheel was the main attraction. A TV Show named Spuk unter’m Riesenrad (Spook under the Ferris wheel) made Kulti more popular.

Lost Places

These posts will show pictures of my Urban Exploration of lost places.
These are buildings that are usually abandoned once were cinemas, cultural centres or industrial complexes.

I used to live in a part of Berlin, where there are and have been many abandoned industrial and cultural buildings.

Many interesting buildings are already wrecked, like the old buildings of the East German TV Broadcast, a swimming pool, a cultural centre or a cinema. They ground was needed for new TV buildings, a university and supermarkets.
