Fried Runge-loving Ferdinand : What connects the caffeine-discoverer with Berlin

"Good Morning! Coffee?" In the case of Google, you have set the chemists friedlieb Ferdinand Runge, a monument, without the in this country, nothing would run. Or only very slowly.

It comes to peace-loving Ferdinand Runge, who is regarded as a caffeine-Explorer. And because of today was born 225 years ago, his legacy prominently featured as a Doodle at the top of the Google homepage. Good Morning!

Logo, Berlin is a coffee city, but what is that actually? We will see shortly, from a local point of view on his Vita: Bingo, the man had to do a lot with Berlin. But after the series: Born 1794 in Hamburg, studied the man from the autumn of 1816 for a year and a half at the University of Berlin - which was now out on the Quick, in spite of coffee! and the study of medicine began here. About Göttingen, Runge returned and made here in the city his doctorate.

"After a sojourn of some years in Breslau, he went in 1832 to Oranienburg, to work here for 20 years as a technical Manager of the Chemical products factory", we read on the website He died in 1867 in Oranienburg, just outside the Northern city boundary of Berlin. He was 73 years old. His tomb, with a stately Obelisk is still in the municipal cemetery of Oranienburg. With the S-Bahn line S1 more arrive, then walk.

According to him, the peace is named up there, in Oranienburg, by the way-loving-Ferdinand-Runge-Gymnasium. Since when the school bears the famous name? We take a look in the chronicle of the school, please, do not yawn: "In April 1992, the official naming took place in the ceremony. The majority of respondents Oranienburger and 70% of high school students had voted for the name of high school "peace-loving Ferdinand Runge", to honor the life's work of Runge's", - stated in the school chronicle.

In Berlin, even a little reminiscent of the caffeine-Explorer - the city is dozing a little in terms of culinary delights. There was even a coffee Museum in Prenzlauer Berg, which later moved further to Kreuzberg in the Gneisenaustraße. View into the Berlin street lexicon Kauperts? No peace-loving Ferdinand-road to nowhere. But the fate of the caffeine-Explorer shares with Berlin's sizes, without the for some anything goes in this city.

Two examples from Berlin-Charlottenburg: Hertha Heuwer invented it in 1949 at the "Stutti" the curry sausage, Kadir Nurman tinkered in 1972, the Döner Kebab at the train station Zoo. Also: without a street name. Thus, if a road sign is sought, with the deserved people of this city appreciated - please, here are three candidates. The Berlin Buffet at the Party at least: Curry, Kebab, neat caffeine. Meal.
