Bike Touring Highlight
Old and New Energy: The large complex, built at roughly the same time as the Berlin Wall, was the central power plant for East Berlin. It remained in operation until 1997. In 2006 the legendary techno club Tresor, which had previously been located in the vault (German Tresor) of a defunct department store, moved into the southern tract of the former power plant. Since 2010 Kraftwerk Berlin has been using the 100-meter-long turbine hall for exhibitions and events. The new Mitte Combined Heat and Power Plant is a modern combined-cycle power plant. It produces both electricity and district heating at the same time. Thanks to its historic location, the power plant is remarkably close to residential buildings.
