ABOUT US

 

 

‘A former homeless shelter founded in 1896.

 

Die Wiesenburg e.V. association since 2015.

 

Today, proudly an artistic and cultural center in the heart of Berlin - Wedding’

 


 


 

We are an NGO in Berlin - Wedding on the extraordinary site of the Wiesenburg, a former homeless shelter from 1896, with eventful history and today a place for crafts, artists and cultural workers. Before the upcoming renovation of the Wiesenburg, the Wiesenburgers want to once again open the doors wide, awaken the 'old' spirit of the Wiesenburg and, together with the visitors, pay tribute to this unique place in Berlin.

 

 

 

 

 

Are you interested in a guided tour in German or English?

 

 

Take a guided tour of the site of the former homeless shelter in Berlin-Wedding with Joe Dumkow, our sitting tenant of Honor.

 


 

In its uniqueness, the Wiesenburg is an important reflection of the social and cultural history of Berlin. The magic of the place can best be taken on a guided walk over the Wiesenburg and its enchanted corners ...

Die Wiesenburg 

 

 

Originally designed by the Berlin Asylum Association (1896) as a haven for the homeless and needy, and forgotten after the Second World War, the Wiesenburg has become a place of art and culture in the heart of Wedding. The Wiesenburg is a meeting place, of intercultural, interdisciplinary and intergenerational conversation. A place that is inscribed with the specificity of a typical neighbourhood meeting point and that develops its charisma beyond.

 

In the center of the building complex, artists have been living and working for years, who have purposefully wrested an enchanted place from reality.To preserve this stubbornness and to open the place by means of art for the whole district, to open the doors wide and bring to life the community, the non-profit association, the Wiesenburg e.V. 'has made.

 

Today, the Wiesenburg is a lively cultural center of Berlin. A wood sculptor, a British sculptor, a Swedish painter and a product designer have their studios here. A professional recording studio, rehearsal rooms for musicians, two metal-working small businesses, a beekeeping and a dance hall financed from district management and EU funds have established themselves here. After long disputes with the new owner DeGeWo, including the imminent closure of the site and expulsion of today's tenants, the cultural workers of Wiesenburg achieved the preservation of commercial units and securing the Wiesenburg as a place of art and culture in Wedding.

 

After further negotiations and cooperation with the new owner, there is now agreement on the upcoming redevelopment of the dilapidated commercial units and the new building to be built in the unused area of ​​the Wiesenburg. Large parts of the building complex are being renovated and restored. As part of this, the former men's asylum hall is being converted for use as a theatre and venue.

The association 'Die Wiesenburg e.V.' is an association of artists based at the Wiesenburg, tradespeople and apartment tenants. It is committed to preserving and developing the exceptional structure and the charming, diverse and naturally grown social and cultural landscape of the Wiesenburg that has been created over the past 20 years.


 

For further inquiries, we are happy to help and would be pleased to welcome you to the Wiesenburg.
