Hasenheide is a large park in Berlin, in the district of Neukölln. It is a large, beautiful park with some attractions. In Berlin, however, the Stadtpark Hasenheide rather makes headlines as a drug dealing place.
Large parts of the park were built shortly before the Second World War. After the war, rubble scrap was stored in Hasenheide, creating a hill more than 20 metres high. The hill still exists today.
