Gdańsk University of Technology

  ul. Narutowicza 11/12, Gdańsk ,   Wrzeszcz          (+48) 58 347 11 00     30 Aug 2023
This impressive building was built as a technical university (German: Technische Hochschule) by the Germans between 1900 and 1904 as Danzig was an important port city which required trained technicians plus it was also considered the perfect place to educate local Danzigers in a German atmosphere and to create a bastion of ‘Germaness’ in the east. The 200,000 m3 development was opened in the presence of Kaiser Wilhelm II on the 6th of October 1904 and its official title was Königliche Preussische Technische Hochschule (Eng: Royal Prussian Technical University). In 1945 it was turned into a field hospital of 3,000 beds and despite surviving most of the war unscathed, was severely damaged by the Red Army on their arrival when 60% of the buildings were destroyed including a valuable collection of books in the library.
