Campus Charité Mitte
The history of the Charité dates back to the year 1710. At that time the plague posed an imminent threat, and King Frederick I of Prussia had a quarantine hospital built outside the city gates. After the plague spared the city, the building was used during the next 17 years as a hospice for destitute old people, a workhouse for beggars, and a maternity home for unmarried mothers. Read more
