Nordbahnhof, former Stettiner Bahnhof, had been erected in 1842 and suffered heavy bombardment during WWII. During the Cold War, the S-Bahn ran through GDR territory but only stopped at stations in the West of Berlin, leaving the passengers to look at deserted ghost stations.

Eingang Park auf dem Nordbahnhof

Entrance near train station. The park at Nordbahnhof, just like Mauerpark, had been part of the “Death Strip”. It is not the prettiest park on this planet, but offers recreation for people nearby. Right next to it, you’ll find MountMitte; a climbing park & bar.

Architecture in Berlin Mitte

A straight walk along Bernauer Straße takes you to Mauerpark, along the old wall. The architecture here is a mix of unique buildings from the 50s-70s, as well as fancy new apartments. (You can probably afford, if you were a dentist, or inherited, or both.)

  1. This is some fabulous street art and graffiti Jeanine and I was amazed how many were in English. I liked “Eating the Rich” and the meat cleaver cutting off the meat – very lifelike there. And I liked the art “Guns don’t kill people, people kill people” – Sam Crew. Well ain’t that the truth, over here anyway.

  2. What a great collection of wall paintings!
    (I remember riding on the S-Bahn through those empty ghost stations in East Berlin.)

    1. Oh wow. I don’t think I did/or remember. But my mum used to say on the train “See those white buildings over there? That is the West”. Today I know they were Plattenbau, just looking a bit differently 😉

  3. Excellent! ‘Keep a safe distance from people who like Marvin Gay’ – good advice; I’ll have to remember that one! How does a vegetarian / Vegan eat the rich? I love the knife cutting a slice off the building. Very clever.
