– raw: ReichsbahnAusbesserungsWerk

– historical railway maintenance, reperation, overhaul facilities; closed in 1995 (exception: Talgo)

– since 1999 intercultural projects organised by RAW-tempel e.V.

– today: the heart of street art in berlin; beautiful graffiti everywhere;

– and: lots of culture and sports, concert halls, clubs, galleries, street food, flea and christmas markets, open air cinema and gastronomy

– unclear future: area is bought up by big investors (developing big scale appartments), development plan of the “bezirk” prefers culture & clubbing
