Berlin’s Mauerpark could charge entry fee

Visitors to Berlin’s Mauerpark may be asked to pay €1 entrance fee to help keep it clean and tidy. The park was created soon after the fall of the Berlin Wall, along what is called “death strip”, where people from East Germany tried to escape into the west.

It is now very popular with tourists and in good weather there is music and a flea market and there may be as many as 50,000 visitors a weekend. Litter collection this year is expected to total €100,000.
