Kulturpark Plänterwald / Spreepark. Abandoned amusement park in the Treptow-Köpenick district of Berlin (formerly part of the GDR-controlled East Berlin). The park opened in 1969 - and was hugely popular during the GDR-era. But after the fall of the Berlin Wall (1989) the park went into decline. It was finally closed, and left to decay, in 2001.
