The Spree-Bogen – Carl Bolle and his Legacy
Carl Bolle is without doubt one of the most traditional and best known entrepreneurs of Berlin history. With premises in the district Tiergarten, right along the River Spree, Bolle more than a hundred years ago established his business reputation. On a terrain of around 40.000 square meters, he developed what was then the most modern dairy in all of Europe.
Bolle’s dairy is to be credited with the implementation of the latest bacteriological know-how, thus setting and maintaining a high standard for food hygiene with respect to dairy production and catering.
With the listed building of the former Bolle dairy, virtually a stone throw away from the parliamentary district, has come into being a striking complex – the ‘Spree-Bogen’: a combination of architecturally noticeable buildings that shape Berlin’s face as a modern metropolis. In addition, the site accommodates the Ministry of the Interior.
