The Körnerpark may be quite small, but it has a lot to offer.
This Park was built in the time of 1912 – 1916 after the former owner Franz Körner donated his gravel pit on condition that the park would be named after him. It is 2,4 ha big and contains a waterfall-cascade, a fountain, an orangery and a café, which hosts various types of exhibitions and concerts.
Due to the fact that it used to be a gravel pit the land is between 5 and 7 metres below the normal street level.
The Körnerpark was designed and built in the style of neo-baroque and is one of the few creations of this kind in Berlin. Being located in the Schierkerstr., Neukölln it’s easy to reach by S-Bahn and a little walk along the Karl-Mar-Straße and the Schierkerstraße.
It’s nice to hang out in the meadows, walk through the garden, drink a cup of coffee in the café or go inside and check out he exhibition (for free)…In summer there are even outdoor concerts on the forecourt of the café!
