Medical history: Berlin's Charité hospital

Beautiful ceramics on this monument outside Berlin's Charité hospital building

Originally founded in 1710, Berlin's Charité hospital is one of the city's oldest institutions, and its compact campus of red-brick buildings also ranks as one of the city's loveliest tucked-away treasures.

Constructed between 1896 and 1917, much of the facility was damaged during World War II, but what remains is certainly impressive.

Take a leisurely stroll through the grounds, or for an in-depth insight into the hospital's history, tours can be arranged by contacting the Berlin Medical Historical Museum (details below)

And for a really good look at off-the-beaten path Berlin, make sure to take a peek at the neighbouring Veterinary Anatomical Theatre or Humboldt University's lovely Agricultural Faculty.
