Full description

The area of the Charité hospital tells some fascinating stories of life and death. It all began in the 18th century with a pestilence house and developed to become what it is now: one of the major university hospitals in Europe and the buildings themselves, relicts of important moments of medical history. Walk in the footsteps of Rudolf Virchow, Robert Koch, Ferdinand Sauerbruch, Emil von Behring, and Karl Bonhoeffer. The walking tour begins at the famous Charité high-rise bed building and ends at the Monbijou bridge. Marvel at this iconic hospital, you will get to hear stories of the geniuses of Berlin medicine, as well as the dark times of the institution, when doctors cooperated with the Nazi regime.

    A wonderful guided tour in the footsteps of the pioneers of modern medicine, such as Virchow, Behring, Sauerbruch, just to name a few. Our guide Susanne made it very lively with lots of wit and great expertise. Very interesting the visit to the animal anatomy theater and anatomy. Thank you very much, I will unreservedly recommend this tour.

    The tour around the Charite and the clinics was really great. Susanne explained everything to us really well. Showed us some interesting things left and right of the trail. Too bad you couldn't get on the premises due to covid. But the tour was still very nice. And above all very interesting and instructive. If at some point covid should be over, at least we hope so, we will take part in the tour of the site again.

    Die Führung war gut organisiert. Die Stadtführerin Susanne hat die Führung an der Charité sehr gut gemacht, sie hat ein überragendes Wissen. Leider konnte man die Charité nur von außen besichtigen, das war sehr schade. Aber wir alle kennen ja die Gründe. Vielleicht wäre es von Vorteil, wenn das im Vorfeld bekannt wäre. So war die Enttäuschung allen Teilnehmern ins Gesicht geschrieben, als Susanne es uns bei Beginn mitgeteilt hat.
