The Buch Palace Garden as well as the historic village center and new development areas make up the characteristic atmosphere of Buch. This northernmost district of Berlin is also home to a number of hospitals and clinics.
Berlin-Buch is characterized by the historic village center as well as its various hospitals, the Buch Palace Garden, and areas with prefabricated buildings. Forests, fields and meadows are also an integral part of the district, as about half of the area is still undeveloped.
Buch Palace Garden
A former one-street village, Buch later became a manor, which in turn was rebuilt into a palace. While the palace is no longer preserved, the old palace church, the manor house and the palace garden still remain. The palace garden is home to some impressive old trees and is conveniently located at the Buch S-Bahn station. It is a nature reserve and a garden monument at the same time.
A large part of the area occupied by the buildings of various sanatoriums. The Helios Clinic Berlin-Buch operates over 1000 hospital beds. The old houses of some of the historical clinics are gradually being dedicated to other purposes. Some of them became residential buildings while others are used for commercial purposes. They are now called Ludwig-Hoffmann-Quartier, named after the Berlin architect under whom the approximately 30 clinic buildings were built at the beginning of the 19th century.
