The beautiful Körnerpark in Neukölln was created in the early 20th century on the site of a former gravel pit. The park is named after Franz Körner, a Berlin businessman who left the site to the city.

Built in baroque style – with fountains, orangery and a raised terrace – the small, well-maintained garden resembles a palace park.

The plane trees planted on both sides of the park provide sufficient shade on warm summer days. There are benches and places to picnic and relax everywhere.

The former orangery is now home of the Galerie im Körnerpark, which is one of the most prominent exhibition venues for contemporary art in Berlin, and the Zitronencafé, which serves breakfast, lunch and cake. It’s possible to sit on the beautiful terrace during the summer months, surrounded by palm trees and citrus trees.

The many stairs along the cascades and at the entrances to the park are a favorite destination for movement-loving kids. If you feel even more urge to move, you can also take a detour to the adjacent playground. Look forward to whale skeletons and other exciting game elements!

During the summer months, concerts are held on the terrace in front of the gallery as part of the “Sommer im Park” series. The aim is to present diverse music scene in Berlin.
