The Kienberg is characterized in large part by its calm, forested grounds. As a result of the International Garden Exhibition, path connections have been revitalized and supplemented. Starting in the spring of 2018, for example, it will be possible to access the “Garden of the World” at the Marzahn lookout from the Kienberg via the new Tälchenbrücke Bridge.
From atop the Wolkenhain “Cloud Grove” lookout tower on the plateau, which is made to look like a walk-in floating cloud over the tree tops, visitors can enjoy an impressive panoramic view of the city center of Berlin with its Fernsehturm at Alexanderplatz, and a view of Brandenburg on the other side. At the foot of the Kienberg is the Kienberg Terrace, which is also the perfect place to linger. Due to construction following the IGA Berlin 2017, however, only the Kienberg Plateau will be accessible and usable via the ropeway until the spring of 2018. Once demolition and traffic flow safety measures have been completed, the parkway will be returned to the public and will again be accessible without an admission fee.
Starting from the Kienberg Terraces, the path connections lead over a 300-metre bridge structure “Wuhlesteg” to a new urban square and Belvedere, the Markian Gardens, and a children’s playground right next to the ropeway station “Kienberg Park”.
The park covers a total of 60 hectares and also encompasses numerous nature conservation projects and a new environmental education center.
The Kienberg Park
has been planned and implemented by Grün Berlin GmbH. Marzahn-Hellersdorf’s district authorities of Berlin entrusted Grün Berlin GmbH with the development and management of the park in a maintenance and use agreement valid from 2014 until the year 2033.
