History

It was built between 1893 and 1895 and first served as an administrative building for the Royal Prussian Artillery Testing Commission. After partial destruction during World War II, it was restored and re-opened by the West German Federal Chancellor Konrad Adenauer on 17 April 1950. Between 1950 and 1990 it served as the seat of the Federal Plenipotentiary (Bundesbevollmächtigter) for the city of Berlin (West) and as outpost of several Federal government agencies some of which have completely moved to Berlin in separate edifices after 1990.

Berlin Memorial Plaque

On 19 July 1990 a Berlin Memorial Plaque commemorating the Generals Erich Hoepner and Henning von Tresckow, who worked in the building, was unveiled in the building.
