The New Charité
Charité is a vital component of Healthcare City Berlin. The “Charité 2030” strategy forms the future-oriented foundation for the strategic structural master planning for all four campuses.
Initially a pest house outside the city gates, then a people's hospital and today one of the world’s leading university clinics in the heart of Berlin. There is no doubt: Over the 300+ years that Charité has contributed to medical history, both Charité and the city have continued to develop.
Future visions for the New Charité are now being formulated for the three patient ward campuses – as a landmark university hospital that is facing future challenges confidently and resiliently. Conceptual approaches are being sought that combine exempary urban planning, architectural, functional, space planning and ecological qualities. Pioneering architectural approaches are intended to reflect Charité’s international position at the forefront of research and medicine, while at the same time constructively and purposefully addressing the architectural-cultural significance of historical heritage.
Campus Charité Mitte
At over 300 years old, Campus Charité Mitte is the oldest campus. Today, red brick buildings from the 19th century and new buildings from the 1980s characterise the listed campus. While the first buildings, such as ‘Bettenhaus’ Ward Building Charité Mitte, have been freshly renovated, further renovations will follow the competitive dialogue procedure for the development of an overall urban development concept. The dialogue procedure is due to be carried out by start-2023.More about Campus Charité Mitte
For Campus Virchow-Klinikum, which was commissioned in 1906 and was originally closed to the outside, a competitive dialogue process was carried out between 2019 and 2020 to develop a vision for the future of urban development. Finally, a concept was selected that enables an extraordinary symbiosis of the historical campus idea and forward-looking building structures for a healing city at Campus Virchow-Klinikum.More about Campus Virchow-Klinikum
Campus Benjamin Franklin
For Campus Benjamin Franklin, it is necessary to design groundbreaking urban development scenarios in the competitive dialogue process by the start of 2022. These are intended to return its status as Europe’s most modern hospital to the iconic 1960s hospital, while at the same time creating important land development for medical care and research.More about Campus Benjamin Franklin

Today, the campus is one of the largest biomedical centers in Germany. It includes the Max-Delbrück-Center for Molecular Medicine (MDC) and the Leibniz-Institut für Molekulare Pharmakologie (FMP) in the area of basic research, Charité’s clinical research and a biotechnology park accommodating over 60 companies.More about Campus Berlin Buch
