- Once the site of one of Berlin's main railway stations, the whole area was reduced to rubble during the War and remained that way until being transformed into a park during the 1980s. The eighties weren't known for their beautiful landscape gardens, as is clear from this example, but Görlitzer Park is full of life and is a popular weekend retreat for Kreuzberg's multi-ethnic community, when it becomes a football field, a dance floor, a picnic spot and meeting place for families and friends.The only architectural feature worthy of mention is the Pamukkal Turkish fountain. Built in 1998, the fountain has recently been turned off due to technical problems. Typical!
