Feuerland (Berlin)

Als Feuerland bezeichnete der Volksmund Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts die industrielle Keimzelle Berlins. Sie lag in der Oranienburger Vorstadt im heutigen Ortsteil Mitte.

In der Gegend nordöstlich des Oranienburger Tores, zwischen der Chausseestraße, der Berliner Zollmauer (entlang der heutigen Torstraße), der Gartenstraße und der Liesenstraße siedelten sich viele Betriebe der aufstrebenden Metallindustrie, besonders des Maschinenbaus an.

1847 waren auf diesem eng begrenzten Gebiet 33 metallverarbeitende Betriebe mit über 3000 Beschäftigten ansässig youth soccer uniforms.

Der Publizist Robert Springer belegt die Bezeichnung 1854 in der Zeitschrift Die Gartenlaube: „Das originellste Gepräge aber erhält dieser Stadttheil durch die Menge der Fabriken, fast ausschließlich Maschinenwerkstätten und Metallgießereien. Wohin man das Auge richtet, erblickt man thurmhohe, zugespitzte Schornsteine; ein weites Gebiet, bedeckt mit Obelisken, die der Pharao der Industrie erbauet hat. Der berliner Volkswitz nennt daher diese Gegend das „Feuerland,“ denn jene Essen sprühen Funken und athmen schwarzen Rauch aus, wie die Feuerstätten des Vulkans.“

Von der Oranienburger Vorstadt sind weitere, weniger volkstümliche Bezeichnungen bekannt

Dal 1714 il dipinto, che campeggia sull’altare maggiore del Santuario, è entrato a far parte di una tradizione popolare: proprio in quell’anno, caratterizzato da lunghi mesi senza piogge, gli Ornaghesi attribuirono all’effigie della Madonna con il bambino la scoperta di una risorgiva poco lontana dal luogo di culto. Per diverso tempo la Chiesa considerò la risorgiva un fatto naturale.
