The popular market hall has a long tradition, lasting for more than 100 years.
In 1908 the market hall was opened by Oswald Prenzel as a private weekly market. Despite the largescale destruction in World War II, the market hall was rebuilt after the end of the war. For the first time in 1958, the area received a roof with iron girders. After the founder’s death, his son Walter Prenzel, who took charge, was able to realize a reconstruction of the hall. This first reconstruction was finished on March 23rd 1972, when the new market hall opened its doors. Since then, the facility has been modernised several times (as for example in 1987 and the 1990ies).
The future is bright
Tegel gets a modern and lively shopping street, which will be an example for shopping streets all over Germany. The ageing Tegel-Center, Gorkistraße and the Hertie-Haus are getting revitalized from 2016 up to 2021. Through the new and modern concept Tegel will get an attractive centre and a promenade that includes shopping facilities.
From 2016 until 2019 the merchants of the market hall will move to the former Hertie-Haus. After the completion of the construction, the market hall will be located in the Southern part of the premises.
The market hall’s tradition, lasting for more than one hundred years, is not only crucial for Tegel, but is also valuable to the HGHI. The project developer genuinely cares about this integral part of Tegel, with the result that the market hall stays open for Tegel’s community and will be given a new look. Through a carefully developed concept, the future market hall will shine in new splendor.
