Friedrich-Wilhelm-Stadt, 15. June 2019 15:00 to 17:00

This part of Berlin-Mitte has its name in honor of the Prussian King Friedrich Wilhelm III. Quite logical the name its north-south middle axis is Luisenstraße, although not the famous Queen Luise, but the equally named daughter of the couple is the patroness of the street. The district is surrounded by Friedrichstraße, Torstraße, river Spree and Humboldt harbor. Although damaged in World War II it is still characterized by buildings of the eras of classicism and historicism. When in the beginning of the 19th century the Charité became the central research hospital and a veterinary school was installed many erudite people came here. Another characteristic of the district originates from Deutsches Theater and Theater am Schiffbauerdamm. Among the brilliant theater people Bertolt Brecht is best internationally known.
