08/09/2018 – Görlitzer Park – Counterculture


An 800×200 meter public park in Kreuzberg created on the site of the former Görlitzer Bahnhof station in the 1980s, it’s now internationally notorious as a hotspot for buying cannabis.

So although this park is well known for its counter-culture feel, typical for Kreuzberg, caution is advised when taking photographs of certain dubious looking locals.

Photo opportunities:

The park has plenty to offer in the way of street art, graffiti, street performers, and a generally bohemian atmosphere.
