A sustainable transport concept for Spreepark
The Spreepark is located in the Plänterwald landscape conservation area and is a special place of unique urban nature. As part of the comprehensive, excellent sustainability approach, an environmentally friendly mobility concept plays an important role in its transformation. In the future, the Spreepark should be quickly and comfortably accessible for all visitors without a car. An improved connection to public transport is just as much a part of the mobility concept as innovative mobility solutions.
Bus, train, boat and bikes instead of car
Plans include a new jetty at the Eierhäuschen, which will also provide access to the Spreepark by water, as well as cycle stations at the future entrances to the Spreepark.
The renovation of the waterway will also provide better connections for cyclists and pedestrians. Unlike the name suggests, the waterway does not run directly along the Spree, but runs "landwards" parallel to the Spreepark and provides a direct connection between Bulgarische Straße and the Spreepark and Eierhäuschen.
A variety of rental services, including bicycles, e-bikes or electric scooters, are available at so-called mobility points, which are to be set up at the surrounding S-Bahn stations and at the entrances to Spreepark. They also provide up-to-date information on the quickest means of transport to and from the park: bus, shuttle boat or, for example, a rental bike.
The residents of the Spreepark will also benefit from the implementation of the sustainable mobility concept. A restricted access to the Spreepark will prevent public motorised traffic in Plänterwald in the future.
In order to protect the Plänterwald landscape conservation area and the residents, the Dammweg between Neue Krugallee and Spreepark will in future have restricted access and will therefore not be accessible to the general public by car. A barrier at the corner of Neue Krugallee will prevent unauthorised access. This measure will reduce traffic and prevent wild parking in the landscape conservation area.
In order to ensure safe access to the Spreepark and the paddling pool on foot or by bike, additional measures will be taken to make the path along the embankment safer for cyclists and pedestrians.
Planning the mobility concept for the Spreepark
The planning of the sustainable, environmentally and resident-compatible mobility concept took place in two steps:
In the first step, a "Feasibility study on the development of the Spreepark with sustainable and innovative modes of transport" was prepared. The study came to the conclusion that the Spreepark can be reached entirely by environmental means of transport and therefore no public car parking spaces need to be created.
In a second step, the feasibility study was integrated into the current development plan procedure 9-7 "Spreepark" with the aim of ensuring the sustainable compatibility of the traffic development for the environment and residents. The traffic expert report, which is an integral part of the development plan procedure, demonstrates the traffic development of the Spreepark.
Environmentally friendly mobility solutions
The mix of existing and new modes of transport enables a comfortable and environmentally friendly journey to the Spreepark. The aim is to create a good alternative to travelling by private car for as many visitors to the Spreepark as possible.
Traffic concept for the Dammweg
To protect the Plänterwald landscape conservation area and the residents, the Dammweg will no longer be accessible to the general public by car. A barrier at the corner of Neue Krugallee will prevent unauthorised access. This measure will reduce traffic and prevent wild parking in the landscape conservation area.
In order to ensure safe access to the Spreepark and the paddling pool on foot or by bike, the path along the embankment will be made safer for cyclists and pedestrians with minimal measures.
