The entire former area around the Evangelical Hospital Queen Elisabeth Herzberge (Keh) has been known as a Landscape Park Herzberge since 2010. It is located in the Berlin district of Lichtenberg. By 2007, the area consisted of a mixture of fallow, economic, living and green areas without joint development with diverse problems. The agricultural exchange Germany Ost e. From 2004, V., together with the Lichtenberg district office, initiated a number of funded projects for careful, natural development of the area for a model project of urban agriculture in Berlin. In different stages, the different areas have been brought together over the years and converted into agricultural areas, networked biotopes, path systems and recreation areas. The main structural work was essentially complete in 2013. Agricultural use through the extensive grazing of the areas with rough -wool Pomeranian landscapes goes hand in hand with the preservation and development of a species -rich and valuable landscape protection area in the district. The designation of the Herzberge landscape park as a landscape protection area was requested from the Senate of Berlin. This application was met in spring 2019.

The building is constructed in béton brut and is part of the initial architecture style we know today as brutalism. The structure was built with on site prefab cast concrete panels and poured ceiling slabs. The Modulor system is the base measure of the Unité and Corbusier used not more than 15 Modulor measures to construct the entire structure form. Ultimately the work has been eliminated from Le Corbusier's oeuvre, which he confirmed himself until his death in 1965 and which has also been confirmed posthumous in 1967 in his last authorized publication of his work.

26. Hahn-Meitner Building

Show sight on map

Nuclear fission was discovered in December 1938 by chemists Otto Hahn and Fritz Strassmann and physicists Lise Meitner and Otto Robert Frisch. Fission is a nuclear reaction or radioactive decay process in which the nucleus of an atom splits into two or more smaller, lighter nuclei and often other particles. The fission process often produces gamma rays and releases a very large amount of energy, even by the energetic standards of radioactive decay. Scientists already knew about alpha decay and beta decay, but fission assumed great importance because the discovery that a nuclear chain reaction was possible led to the development of nuclear power and nuclear weapons. Hahn was awarded the 1944 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for the discovery of nuclear fission.

The congregants' native language combined with the domed tower earned the church its colloquial name Deutscher Dom. While the church physically resembles a cathedral, it is not a cathedral in the formal sense of the word, as it was never the seat of a bishop.

Ernst Heinrich Philipp August Haeckel was a German zoologist, naturalist, eugenicist, philosopher, physician, professor, marine biologist and artist. He discovered, described and named thousands of new species, mapped a genealogical tree relating all life forms and coined many terms in biology, including ecology, phylum, phylogeny, and Protista.

The Marienfelde Village Church is located in the Marienfelde district of Berlin and is the center of the central village. Traditionally, Kurt Pomplun believes the stone church was built "around 1220" and is therefore "undoubtedly the oldest of all rural churches in Berlin and one of the oldest in Mittelmark". A roof beam discovered in 1995 was identified as 1230 by dendrochronology. However, since it was in secondary use, the church could not have been built before 1240. However, it is undoubtedly one of the oldest country churches in Berlin and Mittelmark, where surely older country churches are not known.

The Evangelical Martin Luther Memorial Church in the Mariendorf district of Berlin is a monument and contemporary testimony of a special kind. It was built from 1933 to 1935 on the basis of long existing planning. In the design of the interior, state and church symbolism mixed, as can still be seen today. For this reason, the church has occasionally referred to as a "Nazi church" in the press since around 2004, when it got into the headlines due to its poor construction state. The community itself sees the remains of this design in the zeitgeist of 1933 as a thinking and memorial.
