The Rudow-Altglienicke Landscape Park was opened in spring 2009. The park was created primarily to compensate for the encroachment on nature that arose from the construction of the A113 motorway, but also to enable a connection between the two Berlin districts.
In the summer months, cows, horses and water buffalo graze on the extensive pastures of the 64 hectare landscape park. In several places the area is below sea level, so that the two ponds carry water all year round and attract numerous water bird species.
The paths laid out lead past the pastures, the puddles and numerous meadows. There are numerous benches to rest on. The number of visitors is not too high, so cycling in the park is quite possible. By the way, the Berlin Wall Trail also runs through parts of the park.
The permanent whirring of the passing vehicles on the A113 can be heard from everywhere. But we didn’t find it annoying.
Much more bizarre than the noise of a motorway in the background of a landscape park is the backdrop that is offered from the north-western side of the park: the high-rise buildings on Schönefelder Chaussee tower over the tree tops of the park and make the grazing water buffalo appear almost surreal.
This sight alone is definitely worth a trip :), the landscape park really gives you a feeling of urban nature! In addition, the kids can see their fill here and run and cycle extensively. Don’t forget a picnic!
The entire park is barrier-free.
The park can be reached by bike in around 10 minutes from the Grünbergallee S-Bahn station. The station exit “Grünbergallee” can be reached barrier-free via ramps.
The park can be reached on foot in a few minutes from the Siriusstrasse bus stop.
Cycling is allowed.
There are no toilets and no supply options inside the park.
