Berlin was the scene of the most important events in the history of beet sugar: it was here, in 1747, that Andreas Sigismund Marggraf, the best known chemist of his time in the German-speaking area, discovered sugar in the mangelwurzel.
The initiator of the museum was Edmund Oskar von Lippmann, the doyen of the history of sciences and sugar.
The museum is supported by the sponsor group, Fördererkreis Zucker-Museum e.V. Members of the association sponsor the Sugar Museum by paying EUR 40,00 annually and in return they receive free entrance and are sent regular publications.
Berlin is the capital of Germany and its largest city, with 3,389,450 inhabitants (as of 2002; down from 4.5 million before World War II, and on the decline since German reunification in 1990).
On the other hand, Berlin was devastated in the bombardments during World War II, and many of the old buildings that were left were eradicated in the 1950s and 1960s in both the West and the East in overambitious architecture programs.
Berlin has a rich art scene, but it is increasingly coming under financial pressure, because rents have been increasing since the German government moved back to Berlin from Bonn.
