Fichtebunker, Berlin

4.5
The Fichte-Bunker is a nineteenth-century gasometer in the Kreuzberg district of Berlin, Germany that was made into an air-raid shelter in World War II and subsequently was used as a shelter for the homeless and for refugees, in particular for those fleeing East Berlin for the West. It is the last remaining brick gasometer in Berlin.

The Fichte-Bunker is located between Fichtestraße and Körtestraße in an area of Jugendstil apartment houses, many of which are now under historic protection. The gasometer itself is protected, but in September 2006 the State of Berlin's Real Property Fund sold it to private investors and residences have now been constructed on the roof.

  • History from both WW2 and the cold war. A fascinating labyrinth inside an old gasometer. I will definitely return for another tour.
  • Warning: Tours are only in German! They don’t want English speaking people on the tour. Rather rude. Would not recommend unless you’re a German speaker.
