Central gymnasium (Prinzenstrasse)
The central gym on Prinzenstrasse was the first urban gym in Berlin .
The initiative to build the sports hall went back to Heinrich Kochhann , who also initiated the hospital in Friedrichshain . The building was erected in 1864 at what was then Prinzenstrasse 56 according to plans by the architect Adolf Gerstenberg .
On October 18, the facility was opened with a ceremonial act.
The gym was in operation until World War II and was destroyed by a bomb in February 1945.
