Bike Touring Highlight
Humble origins: For Steve Jobs and Apple it was a garage. For Siemens it was a small workshop in a back courtyard. Here in the shadow of the Anhalter Bahnhof station, the “Siemens & Halske Telegraph Construction Company” began its transformation into the worldwide industrial concern known today as Siemens. The company established its headquarters here in 1901; now it’s the address of the Tagesspiegel newspaper. When the headquarters was moved to the newly created Siemensstadt district in Spandau, there was still a desire to retain a presence in the historic location, with its proximity to the government district. Thus a representative office was built here in 1915 (now the Mövenpick Hotel).
