German playgrounds – Export hits

TV production about a special German export hit

Berliner Seilfabrik produces climbing paradises and creates extraordinary playscapes. They generate three quarters of their turnover abroad. Together with his father, Managing Director David Köhler develops complex rope play equipment reminiscent of spider webs. The highest examples reach 9 meters. They are so popular in the USA that the company has opened a subsidiary there.

Ulrich Paulig from Berlin also specializes in playgrounds. The wooden playscapes are unique, created in collaboration with designers, sports scientists and carpenters. At the moment, Merry go round's foreign sales account for ten percent. However, inquiries from local authorities and cities abroad are increasing.
