A-PIC­NICK­ING WE WILL GO

Where Berlin - - Where Now Adventures -

Air­port tar­macs are usu­ally strictly off lim­its – if not for safety rea­sons, then be­cause of se­cu­rity reg­u­la­tions. But at Tem­pel­hofer Park, Ber­lin’s mas­sive air­port-turned-park, you’re free to roam as you please through­out the enor­mous 3.5 square kilo­me­ters of tar­macs and open mead­ows that were closed off to out­siders un­til 2010. These days, sunny weather draws Ber­lin­ers en masse to the ex­pan­sive grounds, and they take ad­van­tage of its huge space for kite fly­ing, rollerblad­ing, cy­cling, bar­be­cu­ing, or sim­ply sun tanning. What­ever your hobby of choice, one thing al­ways goes per­fectly with a sunny day in the park: a pic­nic. Start­ing in the 2014 sea­son, Pic­nic Ber­lin has launched a pic­nic bas­ket cater­ing ser­vice that pro­vides ev­ery last de­tail for a per­fect al fresco meal, from porce­lain plates, wine glasses, and a blan­ket to sit on to play­time equip­ment like bad­minton rack­ets. Deluxe food and drink to fill the bas­ket can be or­dered in ad­vance and picked up along with the bas­ket at the park en­trance off Oder­straße. www.pic­nic-ber­lin.com
