Pleasant memories of rural life are retained in more than 50 village centres in Berlin with their surviving village greens and churches. After Lübars, the Marienfelde village green offers the most structurally cohesive and striking picture of village life in the city. In the centre is the oldest village church in Berlin, a rectangular parallelpiped granite building built by the Templars in the first third of the 13th century. The Department for the Preservation of Gardens has reconstructed ponds and paths at both sides of the squat building with its low tower. With the completed renovation of the farmhouses and small tenement buildings, embellished by wonderful old trees, the green comes very close to how it appeared at the beginning of the 20th century. The eastern part spreads over into the park of the former Kiepertsche estate which, at the turn of the century was regarded as a wealthy model of its type. The lord’s house is a richly appointed villa from the mid 19th century. Today it houses the Bundesinstitut für gesundheitlichen Verbraucherschutz und Veterinärmedizin (the Federal Institute for the protection of consumer health and veterinary medicine).
