Späthsches Wohnhaus

In 1874, Franz Späth, who later founded of the arboretum featured below in my stream, built this mansion on the grounds in Berlin Baumschulenweg, where the ran a tree nursery, at that time the largest in the world.

Today, the building is used by the botanists of Humboldt University, the arboretum is accesssible to the public and you can still buy plants at the "Späthsche Baumschule" nursery.
