Berlin Fair Grounds Across the World

Berlin Fair Grounds, Germany 1896

Elaborate exhibitions, such as Paris in 1889 and Chicago in 1893 sparked international interest in fairs across the world. Berlin was no exception when it announced the Berlin Trade Exhibition of 1896. The fair grounds consisted of 1.1 million sq.m and 10 million Reich Mark were invested including the construction of the city train station Treptow Park, the construction of Oberbaumbrucke - a stone bridge, and numerous street improvements. This was significant since the Berlin government had provided the fair grounds free of charge with the restriction that all buildings be destroyed after the end of the fair.

On the first day of the Berlin Fair, approximately 3,780 exhibitors participated including Siemens & Halske, Zirkus Hagenbeck, and Borsig. Roughly 4,000 people visited the fair each day from the first of May through the fifteenth of October for a total of 7.5 million visitors. Attractions included a scenery built of Old-Berlin in 1650, the longest lens telescope in the world, and spectacular shows featuring authentic war ship models.
