The Hunter Street is a street in the Berlin district of Mitte of the district of the same . It is interrupted by the Gendarmenmarkt and is named after a hunter's house built in 1690 for the chief hunter of Hertefeld. [1]


In the 16th century there was a house of the electoral hunting in Berlin-Friedrichswerder . In 1690 it was demolished and replaced by accommodation for the head hunter from Hertefeld: the hunter's house. In 1709 the street at this house between Wall Street (today Oberwallstraße) and Chur Street (today Kurstraße) was named Jägerstraße. The name outside of the Berlin city fortifications in Friedrichstadt took place a few years later. [2] The hunter's house is no longer preserved today; rather, the building of the old Reichsbank has been located here since around 1900. The street originally ran in the east to Kurstraße, but was shortened in 1959 to Oberwallstraße. Now it leads back to Kurstrasse. Between 1958 and 1991 Jägerstraße was named after the former East German CDU chairman and deputy GDR Prime Minister Otto Nuschke .
