RAW Gelände information
The postindustrial jumble of derelict buildings along Revaler Strasse is one of the last alternative compounds in central Berlin. In its earlier life it was a train repair station, founded in 1867 as the 'Reichsbahn-Ausbesserungs-Werk' (RAW for short) and in operation until 1994. Since 1999, the graffiti-slathered grounds have been a thriving off-beat socio-cultural centre offering workspace for artists and creatives of all stripes along with clubs and bars, an indoor skate park and – in summer – a bunker-turned-climbing-wall with attached beer garden and outdoor cinema.
