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.

Interview with project manager Marcel Seelig about the MERO Hall

Why is the MERO Hall being renovated at such great expense, what makes it so special, what role does it play in the plans for the Spreepark of the future - and how did the application of the corrosion protection actually work? Park TV spoke to project manager Marcel Seelig about this on site as part of the "Spreepark Stories" series.

Mero Hall shines in blue splendour

In order to secure the MERO Hall and prepare it for its future use as an art and culture venue, the first renovation work was carried out in spring on the building, which was still in danger of collapsing at the time. By mid-November, the unusual steel structure will also be given permanent corrosion protection. From 2024, the MERO Hall will be available as an art and cultural space for performers and artists. It is already planned as a venue for interim uses as part of the Spreepark Laboratory next year.

Mero hall awaits corrosion protection

Over the past few months, the parts of the steel roof structure of the MERO hall that could be renovated have been cleared of dilapidated and contaminated roof and structural components and the heavily corroded hall roof supports have been reinforced. The hall roof was then dismantled. Once the anti-corrosion coating has been applied in autumn, the MERO Hall will be available to performers and artists as an art and cultural space.

Repair work on the Merohalle

The approx. 1,800 square metre Merohalle was built in 1969 using the innovative MERO tubular steel frame system. Over the years, the 20 steel supports have rusted, jeopardising the load-bearing capacity of the structure. In order to reduce the load, the roof and the remains of the old heating and ventilation system will first be dismantled. The supports will then be reinforced and given a coat of paint to protect them from corrosion in future. In the Spreepark of the future, the Merohalle will serve as an event venue and open-air gallery.

Partial dismantling of the factory building

The masterplan for the new Spreepark envisages a main entrance directly at the Eierhäuschen. To create space for this, the dilapidated old head building of the factory building was demolished.
