Welcome to a beautiful day in fall. The Art Park Tegel in Berlin offers a lovely walk for lovers of street art and the architectural wonder that the Plattenbau is. Some of these prefabricated apartment blocks can reach rather impressive heights.
Our first building has 13 floors and is roughly 42 meters high. (My last conversion to non-metric failed royally, so work it out by yourself or believe me that this is pretty high.)
The huge facades provide plenty of space for large scale murals.
All in all, Art Park Tegel shows 8 massive street art pieces by well-known artists. It is also a great photo opportunity from my ongoing study of things you cannot capture properly …
Art Park Tegel is situated north of the city in Neheimer Straße. You can easily reach it by Underground 8 and a bit of walking. I highly recommend taking the U8 all the way to stop Alt-Tegel and walking down along the lake. Besides plenty of photo opportunities you can even hire paddleboats (not like that damn swan is ever free) or treat yourself to a boat trip or coffee and cake. The yachts on Lake Tegel offer a nice contrast to the concrete buildings. A Berlin trip away from the touristy sights.
Which mural from Art Park Tegel was your favorite?
Happy online travelling!
