The Berlin Park in Madrid - Visitor guide

Things to do near the Berlin park

The park is located very close to the Bernabeu stadium, and it boasts terraces, bars, and restaurants which are frequented almost exclusively by locals since the park is outside the most frequented tourist routes and attractions in Madrid. Great if you want to enjoy things locals do in Madrid.

What to see in Berlin park

The upper area of the Berlin park, the one closest to Príncipe de Vergara street is dedicated to sports; there are courts where locals enjoy basketball, some picnic tables, a playground area normally crowded with local children, and an auditorium where open-air concerts are offered in summer.

The lower area of the Park is dedicated to Berlin and the demolition of the Wall. There stand three pieces of the wall which contain original graffitis and that serve the purpose to remind visitors of the existence of a wall that divided Germany for decades and which was brought down in 1989.

The main fountain, located in front of the Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe (a modern church with very interesting architecture), in the lower area of ​​the park, is dedicated to the demolition of the Berlin Wall.

There is also a sculpture called the “Oso de berlin” (Berlin bear) and a sculpture dedicated to Beethoven.

Is it worth the visit?

This is not an impressive park (if you seek one, then El Retiro park or the unknown Capricho park are much better options) . The Berlin park is not a beautiful area with immense botanical value like the botanical gardens of Madrid near the Prado museum. The Berlin park is small, just five hectares, but it is worth the visit if you plan to visit the Bernabeu stadium and would like to enjoy a bit of greenery and local life. Children will enjoy for sure the playground areas and the park boasts some terraces which are perfect to enjoy a drink and a light tapas lunch. Besides that, there is an element of history and collective memory which make it always an interesting visit, especially with children.
