Prussian Liquor Manufacturing
Prussian Liquor Manufacturing
Liquor production used to be in full blossom in Berlin, and the German Kaiser Wilhelm I. would regularly visit the ‘Research and Educational Institute for the distillation of spirits’. The ‘Prussian Spirit Manufactory’, into which said institute evolved, remains the last of its kind to this day. Since 1874, every single performed test run is meticulously documented by scientists and experts in the field of distilling. Techniques and recipes are constantly further developed.
At this site, which functions as manufactory and museum at the same time, the Prussian spirit is conserved in the finest of liquors.
While taking the grand tour, the visitors get to see for themselves the entire manufacturing process and receive detailed explanations for all of the applied methods of production. An extensive tasting offers a cross-section through our product line.

Berlin Wall Tour
Border walks –without borders. Along the former Berlin Wall
Where did the Berlin Wall stand? This question is very difficult to answer in some places, so many years after the Wall was torn down. This is why now the former border line is being marked. But what did the separation mean for whom? The divide was felt very differently by different groups. How do policies and urban planning deal with the “history mile” between Checkpoint Charlie and Potsdamer square?
Stations and topics:
- Subway stop ‘Stadtmitte’ (former ‘Ghost Station’, separation of the transport network)
- Schützenstraße, Jerusalemer Straße (Tunnel escapes, former memorial Reinhold Huhn)
- Zimmerstraße (former newspaper district und today’s site of the ‘Springer publisher’; High rise wars: Springer complex and high rises along the Leipziger Straße in the east)
- Zimmerstraße (Peter Fechter memorial pillar; reasons for the construction of the wall)
- Checkpoint Charlie (former border crossing point for the Allies)
- Remains of the wall in the Niederkirchnerstraße (Border installations and generations of the wall; Fall of the Berlin Wall and souvenir-hunters (known as ‘Mauerspechte’, which translates to wall woodpeckers)
- Topography of terror (The Nazi regime and its downfall led to the division of Germany)
- Martin-Gropius-Building and the Prussian Landtag (Building use along the wall in East, and West Berlin)
- Potsdamer square (Comparison and usage of the square: 1920s, WWII, DDR-era with straightening of land and the flight of protesters from the West into the East, provisional border crossing after the fall of the Berlin wall)
