The Lustgarten

In 1471 the Lustgarten was first announced in the historical books. Between 1573 and 1618 Kurfürst Johann Georg used it as fruit and vegetable garden for his kitchen.

After the Thirty Years´ War, while it got feral, the Lustgarten was designed tessellated since 1645 for Kurfürst Friedrich Wilhelm. In 1646 he got it´s present name.

Since 1657 the Lustgarten got public and was used as the first botanical garden in town.

Between 1713 and 1826 the Lustgarten was used as a parade-ground.

Through the years the place often changed his face, depending on the political leaders in Berlin and Germany. Sometimes it looks the a green oasis for the collective good, afterwards it looks like a stonedesert just for the demonstration of power of the several leaders.

Around the Lustgarten there rises the Alte Museum, the Dom as well as pieces of the Palast der Republik. The Palast gets teared off, for making place for the Stadtschloss which is planed to be raised again.
