Today I wanted to explore the neighbourhood, but following my nose I soon found myself much further away. I stumbled upon the Gleisdreieck Park - Railway junction park. Once it was a busy traffic junction, where goods trains were rolling of and on. It became a wasteland at the end of the Second World War, and nature took over, developing a rich diversity of vegetation. To preserve this unique wasteland a group of citizens formed a committee, which got what it wanted: a park where you can still find the remains of the railway activities, roads to walk and bike, and lots of grass for recreation.
