Description

Listen to the fascinating stories of life and death that the Berlin Charité has to tell. Hear about its history, starting in the 18th century with a plague house that would later develop into what it is today: one of the most important university hospitals in Europe. Join your guide and learn about famous doctors, scientists, and Nobel Prize winners, such as Rudolf Virchow, Emil von Behring, Robert Koch, and Ferdinand Sauerbruch. Learn interesting facts about the geniuses of Berlin medicine and the dark times of the institution, when doctors collaborated with the Nazi regime. Visit a mysterious 'medicine temple', Berlin's oldest surviving teaching building, hidden in a backyard. Start your tour at the Charité Bed House, which you'll view from the outside. Then walk along Luisenstraße, and across the university campus. Since the start of the pandemic in 2020, the hospital grounds (Charité Campus Mitte) are no longer open to the public. Finally, visit Berlin's oldest surviving teaching building from the inside.
