During the industrialization, many breweries and densely populated residential areas bloomed in the northern parts of old Berlin. In the 1990s, after the fall of the wall, Berlin’s district Prenzlauer Berg turned into Europe’s largest urban renovation area and a hot spot for tourists and new Berliners. The tour through the ‘brewery quarter’ explores its historical as well as its current development, exemplified by three brewery sites and the various secondary use concepts implemented there today.
The ‘Königsstadtbrauerei’ was turned into a cooperative business site, the historical Schultheiss-Brauerei is used commercially as well as non-commercially and the “Pfefferberg”’s locations are administered via a hereditary lease system.
