The Hirschgarten skatepark is the newest transition skatepark in Germany right now. It is located in the public garden called "Hirschgarten" which means deer or buck garden. It includes a big and fast flow area which is 3 - 8 feet deep, a over vert corner which is 12 feet deep, the first german fullpipe which is 17,5 feet high and closed at the end, a huge convex vert wall extension, a mini kidney bowl connected to the flow area, a speed bump in the middle, a roll in and a cloverpool with corners 6, 7 and 8,5 feet deep with a foot of vert all around, poolcoping, tiles, deathbox and stairs. The whole surface is just perfect and butter smooth.
No lights, no restrooms, no water, no skateshop, no entry fee. Pads and helmets are required. Bikes are not allowed. It is public and open all the time.
The skatepark was designed by bowl construction ag from switzerland ( www.bowl.ch ) together with locals Julian Ettel and Markus Suchanek.
