The entire former area around the Evangelical Hospital Queen Elisabeth Herzberge (Keh) has been known as a Herzberge landscape park since 2010. It is located in the Berlin district of Lichtenberg.

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 were brought together over the years and converted into agricultural areas, networked biotopes, path systems and recreation areas. The main construction work was essentially complete in 2013. Agricultural use by 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.

Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein was a German-born theoretical physicist who is widely held to be one of the greatest and most influential scientists of all time. Best known for developing the theory of relativity, Einstein also made important contributions to quantum mechanics, and was thus a central figure in the revolutionary reshaping of the scientific understanding of nature that modern physics accomplished in the first decades of the twentieth century. His mass–energy equivalence formula E = mc2, which arises from relativity theory, has been called "the world's most famous equation". He received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his services to theoretical physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect", a pivotal step in the development of quantum theory. His work is also known for its influence on the philosophy of science. In a 1999 poll of 130 leading physicists worldwide by the British journal Physics World, Einstein was ranked the greatest physicist of all time. His intellectual achievements and originality have made the word Einstein broadly synonymous with genius.

Show sight on map

The painting Nicaraguan Village – Monimbó 1978 is a depiction completed in 1985 on the gable façade of a residential building in Berlin's Lichtenberg district. The mural depicting scenes from everyday life in a small village in Nicaragua was commissioned by the East Berlin magistrate to the Nicaraguan artist Manuel García Moia. Among other things, the GDR government supported the liberation struggle of the Nicaraguan people against the Somoza regime. After the fall of the Berlin Wall, the building was privatized, and the gable image was recreated as a replica on the renovated wall surface. However, due to poor materials and poor workmanship, large parts fell off from 2011 onwards and finally the painted insulation layer had to be knocked off again for safety reasons. A citizens' initiative successfully sought a second renewal, which was completed in autumn 2019.

Unité d'Habitation of Berlin is a 1958 apartment building located in Berlin-Westend, Germany, designed by Le Corbusier following his concept of Unité d'Habitation. Le Corbusier's Unité d'Habitation concept was materialised in four other buildings in France with a similar design. 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.

32. 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 New Church, is located in Berlin on the Gendarmenmarkt across from French Church of Friedrichstadt. Its parish comprised the northern part of the then new quarter of Friedrichstadt, which until then belonged to the parish of the congregations of Jerusalem's Church. The Lutheran and Calvinist congregants used German as their native language, as opposed to the French-speaking Calvinist congregation of the adjacent French Church of Friedrichstadt. 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.

The village church Marienfelde in the Berlin district of Marienfelde is the focal point of the central village green. Traditionally, Kurt Pomplun claims that the fieldstone church was built "around 1220" and is thus "undoubtedly the oldest of all village churches in Berlin and one of the oldest in the Mittelmark". A roof beam found in 1995 was dendrochronologically dated to 1230; however, since it was in secondary use, the church can hardly have been built before 1240. Nevertheless, it is undoubtedly one of the oldest village churches in Berlin and the Mittelmark, where a village church that is certainly older is not known.
