The Friedrich List School, Commercial College for Business Languages, is a public vocational school that offers programs combining business studies and foreign languages in Berlin. It is in Victoriastadt not far form the Spree River.
Victoriastadt, also known as Kaskelkiez after the Kaskelstraße (street), is a residential area in the district of Rummelsburg in the southwest of the district of Lichtenberg. The name “Victoria City” is an expression of the close connection that existed with the United Kingdom at the end of the 19th century under its regent Queen Victoria.
As a historic workers’ settlement, Victoriastadt has strongly influenced the traditional image of the old Berlin of the Wilhelminian period. A large part of the residential development, partly with coach houses and small workshops in the backyards, has been preserved.Victoria City – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Strecker Laboratory was the first laboratory in the country devoted exclusively to pathological and bacteriological research. Administrated by the Charity Hospital, later called the City Hospital.
