My hometown has been waiting for this for months now – the brand new Hamburg-Wilhelmsburg skatepark has officially been opened “to the public” and (as I am still on vacation close to Helsingoer, Denmark skating the outdoor park there) it looks really good.
Being one of the largest concrete parks in all of Germany, it was built by Hamburg’s Minus Ramps team mixing street plaza elements with a lot of flow which continues into a snake run and bowl area with pool coping!
I’m driving back to Hamburg tomorrow and on Monday I get my “season” ticket for the park because I’m part of the local skateboard club. That’s the only problem at the moment. The skatepark is located in the new international garden show which is open from April 26th until October 13th of this year and you have to pay to get in. And the price during the day is really steep: 21 Euros if you are over 17 years old. There’s an evening card which is still 9 Euros.
I’ll be adding a video next week when I’ve skated it and I’ll keep you up-to-date about any possibilities to get in cheaper. If you are in town to skate, give me a shout with a mail or call me up (check the contact page for my contact info)!
