Berlin’s [7] amazing Mount Center [4] opened in 2010 next to a wild park, meters away from the Nordbanhof S-Bahn train station. After a short training session with an experienced guide, visitors are welcome to climb the grand parkour area and discover six different courses with different difficulty levels and altitudes. The recycled area is 43 feet high and features a mix of classics cars (including vintage German Beetles [8] and East German Trabants [9]), repurposed barrels, tires, wood and ropes.

The Beach-Mitte [10] area offers a sandy environment to play beach volleyball against the backdrop of concrete buildings. The Hawaiian-themed Beach Bar is the newest attraction, offering a two-story transparent pavilion for enjoying cool drinks and tasty food. The bar is decorated with a colorful collection of lamps made from recycled plastic containers, driftwood and vintage lights.

Berlin’s [11] fun and sporty Mount Center is also great for kids – it has a cool beach playground featuring a cute wooden Noah’s Ark. [12]
