The “Dicke Marie”
She is supposed to be more than 800 years old and the oldest tree in Berlin, much older than the oak in Grunewald near to Schwanenwerder. The name was given to her by the Humboldt Brothers after a well known overweight cook in the Castle Of Tegel. In 1778 even Goethe visited this tree.
