SEZ complex opens in East Berlin
The SEZ sports and leisure complex opens in Friedrichshain, East Berlin.
It attracts 16 million visitors in the first five years alone. The complex, which had swimming pools, sports halls, an ice rink and several restaurants, was designed to welcome up to 22,000 visitors a day.
Heide-Maria Heyde used to work there and recalls the long queues that were a daily sight outside the complex.
