Don’t have a lot time to explore Berlin and Brandenburg? Then ModellPark!

Mini Brandenburger Tor

A couple weeks ago I spent an afternoon after work exploring ModellPark Berlin – Brandenburg.

Mini Reichstag!

Located in the middle of Volkspark Wuhlheide – or something vaguely in the middle – ModellPark is a collection of something like 60 miniature replicas of buildings from Berlin and Brandenburg, ranging from the places I know, to a lot of places I’ve never heard of.

Mini Pfaueninsel

And since everything is miniature sized and I’m not, the scale is completely awesome. I found myself staring in the windows of HOWOGE, pondering what was happening inside. Never has Brandenburg Tor ever felt so small.

HOWOGE

The crazy thing was that for a splendid afternoon, the ModellPark was virtually empty. It was also hard to find – following the signs from the nearby street led us to nowhere, and a map of the park was lacking the “You are here” indicator that would have made it useful.

The other crazy thing was that the park appeared to be poorly maintained – but then in the middle of the forest, we found this patch of grass that was freshly mowed.

    This does look like a cool “little” park to check out, although I feel like there should be minigolf involved, somehow.
