Even fun has a shelf life – this is what runs through my mind as I walk around Spreepark, the abandoned, dilapidated amusement park in Berlin. I can’t help but get visions of the many cemeteries I have visited in the past – the former amusement park is like a graveyard of fun.

Our Spreepark tour guide explains that the Ferris wheel moves when the wind blows strong enough. He also explains the story of this unusual amusement park in old Eastern Germany – and boy is it a story. Actually the whole tour is in German only, but you can get the sorted story of how the family who owned the park in East Germany tried to keep it going when the wall fell in various articles around the internet. I knew the tour was in German, but I was there not to listen, but to take photos.
