Prayer was first in this place. The Church of the Resurrection was built between 1892 and 1895 on the site of a former poor cemetery. The brick church, built in the late Romanesque style, was badly damaged in the Second World War and only provisionally rebuilt in the post-war years.
In the 1980s, the Church of the Resurrection was a meeting place for the East German opposition. Blues masses initiated by Pastor Rainer Eppelmann took place here, and Bärbel Bohley organized a community day here.
Since 1995, after extensive renovation work, the listed building has housed the agency "Besonder Orte", which operates an ecologically oriented event center in combination with the rental of office space.
The impressive industrial building "Neue Mälzerei" in the neighborhood is also operated by the "Special Places". They were built by the operators of the Bohemian Brewery, one of the largest breweries in Berlin in the 20th century.
City, church, industrial and social history are intertwined in a unique way on the guided tour in the city area around the Church of the Resurrection.
