Bayerischer Platz in Berlin-Schöneberg is the center of the Bavarian Quarter. It was built as a jewelry space in 1908 based on the designs by Fritz Enke. To achieve this, the builders created green spaces, planted trees and set up benches. Almost 50 years later, extensive modifications were made to the square to make the city more car-friendly. For this purpose, the square was cut into two differently sized parts and thus lost its charm. Further renovation measures were decided in 2007 to improve the quality of stay on site. Numerous celebrities lived in the area around the square, including the scientist Albert Einstein and the psychoanalyst Erich Fromm.
