Is This Possible Today?

Unthinkable. 56,200 square meters of consumer indulgence. And not a single bike rack.

According to German law, there must be 1 bicycle parking place for every 150 square meters of shopping area, which would imply 188 bike bars for 376 bikes. The Berlin bicycle club did a count at the widely advertised grand opening of the new shopping center and found more than 500 bikes in various states of insecurity.

It is reported that the 1600 auto parking places, which were opened in sync with the grand opening, were largely empty. Small consolation.Via ::bike club berlin
