About the clinic

Academic Hospital Bundeswehr Berlin is a military hospital founded in 1853.

Over the years, it transformed into a large medical facility. The hospital's crucial core task is the education and constant training of local military medical personnel for the foreign deployments of the German Armed Forces.  In addition, the institution is an "academic teaching hospital" affiliated with University Hospital Charite Berlin in education.   The hospital occupies 76,000m², an area equal to 19 football pitches.
