The stadium site is located in the north of the district of Lichtenberg.Team name BVB Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe.
The stadium was built in 1920,The covered grandstand on the eastern side of the stadium is now a listed building.
In the last weeks of World War 2 air defense units of the German Wehrmacht were stationed and they created an ammunition dump.of which even now they keep finding littered ammunition and unexploded bombs.
The north side of the stadium is the swimming pool it was built in 1928 It served foreign Swimming athletes as a training venue for the Olympic Games in 1936 .
After World War 2 there was no use of the swimming pool until the DDR was to revise the systems in the 1970s and the outdoor pool opened again. As Sommervolksbad it was until the late 1980s. It is no longer usable without total renovation.
What can I say about this little explore, it was just so nice, in the adjoining grounds of a football club.
I could see the old diving boards in the distance of the swimming pool. it was a really cold December morning in 2013.
As there was an open gate to the stadium I just walked in, and past the playing field that had a couple of runners lapping around the pitch.
When I got to the pool I expected someone to shout forboden or such like, but to my surprise they just left me alone to look around, it brought back fond memories of my youth of all the great times to be had at an outside pool.
