Monuments and Sights

The famous surgeon Theodor Billroth was once born in the Billroth House in Bergen.

The house was built in 1800 as a town house. Theodor Billroth was born here in 1829. After spending the first 3 years of his childhood here, he lived in Greifswald. After stations such as Göttingen and Berlin, Billroth received an appointment as professor of surgery in Zurich in 1859. Billroth's main achievement was the development of new surgical methods for gastric resections (first performed at the University of Vienna in 1881). The creation of "medical charts" can also be attributed to him. He was one of the most outstanding surgeons of his time. In 1892, during his lifetime, he was honored by the bronze memorial plaque. In 1998, the German Society of Surgery took it over, honoring Theodor Billroth's contributions to surgery. Billroth died in 1894 and was buried in Vienna. The premises are open to the public for the "House Concert at Billroth's" event.
