YOU ARE HERE: MORITZPLATZ IN 1909

Moritzplatz 1909

Until the 2nd World War Moritzplatz was an extremely busy and lively place: crossed by several tram lines, a U-Bahn station of U8, plenty of regular city traffic and tens of thousands of pedestrians who came to do their shopping at dozens of local shops – in particular at the world famous Wertheim Department Store (used to stand where Prinzessinengarten is today) – or to eat at one of many so called “Etablissements” in the neighbourhood.

Today Moritzplatz is getting back to life mainly thanks to the fantastic AufbauHaus housing an even more fantastic MODULOR Store (a blessing and a curse for all stationary products´ fans out there) and the share-space offices hidden around it. It is, however, quite certain that it will never become what it used to be: the fast-beating heart of a Kiez.
