Location of the Guard Ulanen barracks in Brandenburg
The barracks were built in several sections from 1861/62 as accommodation for the 3rd Guard-Uhlan Regiment of the Prussian Army in the Jägerallee in Potsdam in the Norman castle style. After its final completion in 1880, it housed the 5th Squadron of this regiment.
From 1933, after the National Socialists came to power , the buildings again served as barracks for the newly formed Wehrmacht . In memory of Potsdam Day , the complex was named Hindenburg Barracks . Parts of the Potsdam Infantry Regiment , which was later renamed Infantry Regiment 9 , were stationed here .
In 1991 the building was placed under a preservation order  , in 1997 it was taken over by the Bornstedter Feld development agency and renovated as part of the extensive construction work in the city area before the 2001 Federal Garden Show . In 2002 it was handed over to the first new users, a Potsdam upper level center and the Deutsche Kreditbank (DKB). The artists Frank Michael Zeidler and Hubertus von der Goltz opened the Kunsthaus Potsdam in 2002 in part of the area . The restored Alte Waffenmeisterei on the site has been used as a printing shop since 2002 .
