Gesundbrunnen

Gesundbrunnen is a locality of Berlin in the borough of Mitte. It was created as a separate entity by the 2001 administrative reform, priory the eastern half of the former Wedding district and locality.

The locality is located in Berlin's inner city, at the north-eastern rim of the central Mitte borough.

The locality took its name from a mineral spring first documented by chemist Andreas Sigismund Marggraf about 1748, later site of the Luisenbad spa, named after Queen Louise of Prussia. The area became a popular destination for day-trippers and, after its integration into the city of Berlin in 1861, a densely settled working-class quarter. From 1905 the sports field near the Berlin-Gesundbrunnen station, later Stadion am Gesundbrunnen, is the home ground of the Hertha BSC Berlin football club.

From 1949 Gesundbrunnen belonged to the French sector of West Berlin, while the neighboring Mitte, Pankow and Prenzlauer Berg were parts of East Berlin. The boundary between the sectors and, from 1961 to 1989, the Berlin Wall ran beside the Nordbahn railway and the divided Bernauer Straße. This street became notorious for tunnels dug under it as well as for daring escape jumps from windows of the apartment blocks in the eastern part of the city; down to the street which itself belonged to the French sector. On the evening of November 9, 1989 the frontier crossing at Bornholmer Strasse station was the first to open, permitting East Berliners to pass freely toward the west.

Today it is one of Berlin's poorer districts with a high unemployment rate of almost 26% and about 17% of the population living on social welfare.

Gesundbrunnen is one of the few localities of the former western sector served by tramways and it is also served by many S-Bahn lines and U-Bahn. Its main station is, from 2006, upgraded for long distance trains.

Best Western Grand City Hotel Berlin Mitte, Holiday Inn Berlin Mitte are some of the most convenient hotels in the area with prices starting from 45 euros.
