The Pappelplatz in Mitte may not be a special or particularly beautiful place at first glance. But if you take a closer look, you can become quite fond of the square. There is an important tram stop here – and a small skate park. And the statue on the fountain in the middle of the park invites you to reflect: The Money Counter by Ernst Wenck from 1912.
The water pump at Arkonaplatz – an almost historical meeting place. On Fridays, a very popular weekly market takes place here, where you can find fruit and vegetables, fish and meat and a wide selection of food stalls, food trucks and other eating places. Falaffel, freshly grilled fish, sausages and perhaps a glass of wine.
And on Sundays, around the corner from the sometimes very crowded flea market at Mauerpark, a small, fine flea market invites you to linger, browse, trade and buy.
