A special street in Tempelhof

Meanwhile, Alboinstr., where accommodation Berlin can also be found on, is a busy residential and commercial street. Characteristic of this street is the cobblestone Alboinplatz, which is divided into two areas. The street thereby borders the Schöneberg industrial area located to the west of this street.

The most conspicuous building, however, is the TÜV Rheinland, which has one of several Berlin branches here. Also conspicuous on this street is the Alboin-Kontor, a former warehouse.

Alboin, King of the Longobards

Name giver for this street was Alboin, the king of the Langobards. This lived from 526 to 572 or 573. Exact records about it do not exist. The king of the Lombards from the house of Gausen died in Verona and was the founder of the Lombard Empire in Italy. Why this street was named after this king, however, is unclear. There is no connection to Berlin, but there is to the Elbe. For the Lombards originated in the areas of the lower Elbe and are considered a subtribe of the Germanic Suebi.

Alboin Square

The central point of this street is the Alboin Square. This is an oval square, located in the course of Alboinstr., and directly on the border of the two districts of Tempelhof and Schöneberg. But only the eastern development of the square still belongs to Tempelhof. The image of the square is characterized by the natural monument Blanke Helle, a lake. Another landmark of the square, a striking sculpture of an aurochs or bull, stands on the southern slope of the lake depression.
