At Dahlem’s laboratories, scientists developed the entirely new research fields of Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, and Atomic and Particle Physics. Some of their findings were to change the world dramatically.

This was the workplace and residence of the likes of Otto Hahn, Lise Meitner, Werner Heisenberg and, briefly, Albert Einstein. Their work is affecting us to the present day.  

The first modern research campus was created here, outside the city gates on a greenfield site, in 1912 with the Institutes of the Kaiser Wilhelm Society, predecessor of the Max Planck Society. Today, these representative buildings are still used by scientists of the Max Planck Society and the Freie Universität Berlin.
