On first appearances, Moorweide seems to be little more than a typical inner-city park, full of sunbathers, joggers and old men walking their dogs. Yet there is plenty more going on here. It is the starting point for hot air balloon rides
and hosts all kinds of cultural events like outdoor concerts and a circus. Much has happened here over the centuries. Used since the early 19th century as a parade ground and a centre for political rallies (including many by the Nazis), Moorweide was also used as a deportation point for Jews and a meeting place for the homeless during the War. A small round tower on Rothenbaumchausee catches the eye. This used to be a bunker, but is now home to the Turm Bar. Art-lovers will notice several sculptures dotted around the park, including pieces by Henry Moore and Ulrich Rückriem.
