Berlin is entirely occupied by the Swabians. Well, not entirely… One small park of indomitable Thai’s still holds out against the invaders. These were my thoughts, when I walked into the Preußenpark this Sunday. It was crowded, colorful and smelled like on the markets in Bangkok or Koh Samui where I was earlier this year. Hundreds of Thai people were sitting in the park, on blankets, under sunshades and sold their fresh cooked food. A secret oasis in the middle of Berlin Wilmersdorf.
Ok, some background information to this little Thailand, because there is no official website. The people just come together and cook Thai food in the Preußenpark. You find this park at the Fehrbelliner Platz, 10707 Berlin Wilmersdorf. I heard, that they cook every day, but you probably get the best Thai experience on sunny weekends. It is not expensive, you can try everything for a few euros. The Thai’s celebrate this event for many years and they all sit on the ground and cook their food on the ground. So you shouldn’t be a hygiene-fanatic if you want to try out the stuff.
Conclusion: I was really fascinated of this Thailand spot in Berlin and haven’t seen something comparable in Germany. If you want to go there, take a picnic blanket, get some delicious food or even cocktails and enjoy the sun with your friends.
