This giant, youthful activity space (let's call it) is a wide-open, out-of-service airport lot. Allowed to just gradually return to nature and recreational use by citizens, it's a convincing example of how effortless yet effective urban renewal can be. Mileage markings along the paved runways and occasional signage are the only guides to the park's use-the rest is up to the citizens, or traveler's, imagination. Many Berliners grab a beer from a local Späti and gather here to watch the sun set across the expanse.

Possibly my favorite place in Berlin. You'll find community gardens, refugee camps, people skateboarding, flying kites, sculptures... and yet it is so large, it never feels overwhelming.
