The Mauerpark in general
The Mauerpark is a park in Berlin. His name goes back to 1961 when the Berlin Wall was built, which was the border between the former Prenzlauer Berg and Wedding. Today, it is the border between the districts of Prenzlauer Berg (Pankow) and Gesundbrunnen (district centre). The areas around the Mauerpark are westbound the Brunnenviertel belonging to Gesundbrunnen, and in the east the Gleimviertel belonging to Prenzlauer Berg.

Worth a visit
Highly recommended is the wall close to the Friedrich Ludwig Jahn Sportpark. Here you can discover really nice artwork such as the Rolling Stones Theme – I liked that pretty much. if you`re interested in spraying, you will find many young sprayers over here – hobby artists and pros.

Philipp Lahm scored the winner
…as Germany claimed the first final berth at Euro 2008 after beating Turkey 3-2! A weakened Turkey side had dominated the first half but were only level at the interval after Germany’s Bastian Schweinsteiger had cancelled out Ugur Boral`s opening goal. But Phillip Lahm smashed home the winner!
Second half brings the decision
The second half was a much more even contest and looked to be going to extra time after Germany striker Miroslav Klose and Semih Senturk of Turkey had each scored in the final 11 minutes. But there was still time for Lahm to smash home the winner as three-times European champions – twice as West Germany in 1972 and 1980 – reached the final, where they will meet the Spanish “seleccion”.Turkey, playing in their first Euro semi-final, had captured the imaginations of the neutral after staging remarkable comeback victories in their previous three matches.
The Final – Party in Berlin
Anyway, a big celebration will be held on sunday the 29th with more than 5000.000 people expected to celebrate this event at the Berlin Fanmeile close to Brandenburger Tor! So be part of it!
