Construction & Development

Construction Measures at the Spreepark

The main construction work for the new Spreepark is in full swing. The central areas will be realised by 2026.

As the first milestone of the new Spreepark, the Eierhäuschen was reopened at the end of 2023 after extensive refurbishment in keeping with its listed status. As a catering and art location, the historic building houses a restaurant with a summer garden as well as exhibition and residency spaces for artists in the Spreepark Art Space. As part of the innovative mobility concept for the Spreepark, the area can be reached via the jetty, which will be completed in 2023.

The English Village has already been dismantled and is being rebuilt as an innovative event location in a timber construction that is as unusual as it is sustainable. The famous cup carousel has also been dismantled and stored - at the former main entrance to the Spreepark, the colourful cups will become a style-defining element of the future meadow landscape. The former factory building was already partially dismantled in 2020 and is currently being renovated. In future, it will serve as the new main entrance and event hall. In summer 2024, work will begin on the new water basin, where the spectacular supporting structure of the Ferris wheel will then be realised. With the dismantling of the Ferris wheel already completed for the refurbishment and transformation by 2026, the landmark of the Spreepark has also been successfully secured.

Since taking over the Spreepark in 2016, Grün Berlin has already implemented a large number of individual measures in and around the Spreepark. These range from the necessary remediation of contaminated sites to media development work such as the laying of gas, electricity, drinking water and telecommunications lines as well as the construction and renewal of pathways such as the Pioneer Path or the waterway for pedestrians and cyclists to the successfully completed refurbishment of relics from the old Spreepark days such as the Mero-Halle.

Construction measures


Renovation of the Eierhäuschen almost completed

After around four years, the refurbishment of the popular "Eierhäuschen" restaurant in the Spreepark, which is over 100 years old, is largely complete. Preparations for operation are now underway inside. The complete ensemble with restaurant, beer garden and exhibition rooms will open in spring 2024.

Time-lapse video of the construction work at the jetty

Following the opening of the "Eierhäuschen" beer garden, another milestone has been reached for visitors and guests to Berlin with the successful construction of the pier at the Spreepark. Covering an area of 120 square metres, the landing stage is located along the banks of the Spree directly at the eastern main entrance to the Eierhäuschen and future Spreepark. The barrier-free construction, weighing almost 190 tonnes, is based on a robust steel supporting structure. The additionally installed steel sheet pile wall serves to separate the shallow water zone from the deep water area and was made entirely from recycled steel.

Our time-lapse video shows the work on the jetty from start to finish.


Trial operation starts at the jetty

Construction work on the jetty at Spreepark has been successfully completed. Shipping companies that would like to include the new jetty in their timetable can now register on the Spreepark website at and book berthing options independently in future after successful registration. The first passenger ships are expected to be able to call at the new jetty from 1 August 2023. In the medium term, passenger ships from various shipping companies will be able to call at the jetty regularly to enable visitors to the Spreepark and the Eierhäusch to arrive and depart in a convenient and plannable manner. The landing stage can only be used for passenger shipping, i.e. the transport of passengers. The new landing stage is not available for private shipping. The pier is managed by Grün Berlin on behalf of the state of Berlin.

Erection of the steel structure for the jetty

Following the installation of the sheet piling and the filling of gravel for the shallow water zone, the steel scaffolding is currently being built to support the components of the future jetty.


Jetty at the Eierhäuschen: Interview with project manager Marcel Seelig

Why are the banks of the Spree being renaturalised during the construction of the jetty at the Spreepark? And how does it work? Park TV spoke to project manager Marcel Seelig about this on site as part of the "Spreepark Stories" series.



Jetty at the Eierhäuschen: near-natural shore area takes shape

For the new jetty at the Eierhäuschen, a crane was used to install the steel sheet piling required to create the planned shallow water zone. The fixed bank walls had previously been dismantled in this section. This will create a near-natural bank area along the Spree and thus a new habitat for plants and animals.

"Cinema 2000" will be preserved

Renovation work on the "Cinema 2000" in Spreepark has begun with the dismantling of the almost 12.50 metre high tent dome. The striking orange and yellow striped supporting structure was used as a 180-degree cinema until the park closed. Like the Ferris wheel and the Mero-Halle, the "Cinema 2000" will now be incorporated into the park's new concept in line with the results of the public participation process. In future, the "Cinema 2000" will become a covered venue for events and cultural activities.


Construction work for jetty started

Following the necessary ground investigations, construction work for the "Spreepark jetty" at the Eierhäuschen will begin. At the moment, the preparatory measures of explosive ordnance testing and clearance in the Spree are taking place with the help of a pontoon and divers. Our webcam shows the progress of the work on a daily basis.

The new jetty will provide visitors to the Spreepark and Eierhäuschen with a completely new way of travelling across the Spree. Located at the future eastern main entrance, the jetty will offer guests on passenger ships a convenient way to embark and disembark.

In consultation with the nature conservation authorities and associations, a shallow water zone will be created over a length of more than 100 metres in the area immediately adjacent to the jetty. To this end, the existing bank walls will be dismantled in large areas and a new habitat for plants and animals will be created. The first passenger ships are expected to be able to call at the new jetty from the second quarter of 2023.

Seating steps at the Eierhäuschen

The forecourt between the Eierhäuschen and the Werkhalle is taking shape. Together with a playground, beer garden, restaurant garden and terrace, an ensemble of steps consisting of 60 concrete seating blocks will invite people to linger at the planned main entrance east.

Nature conservation studies on the Dammweg

In consultation with the Treptow-Köpenick district office, the nature conservation authorities and organisations, so-called "amphibian trapping fences" were installed in the Dammweg area. These serve to gain an overview of which amphibian species live in the Plänterwald and which migratory movements they undertake in spring. The surveys will continue until April. This will be followed by analyses and, if necessary, planning for targeted amphibian protection measures.
