Back in the late 1640s, the buildings at Kreuzbergstraße 27 and 28 were home to a dairy cow establishment, the Milchkuranstalt Viktoriapark. The specifics about the building’s creation and history can be found over on Kreuzberg’d, along with photos of some of the cows who produced milk there. But today, it seems no one would even suspect that this area was home to an in-city dairy farm back in 1888. The only reason I know is because we were led there on a walking tour of Tempelhofer Vorstadt, and got to check out the buildings that once supplied fresh, hygienic milk to the buildings and hospitals in the area.
