The historic property Tarabya was formerly used as a summer residence in Istanbul by German ambassadors. Apart from the residence itself, an office building, an administration building as well as housings for the attendants were in use. After the shift of the Turkish capitol from Istanbul to Ankara, the property was only of secondary importance to the Foreign Service. It has only been in the last few years that one has begun to gradually restore the edifices to be used in the future. Besides the representative main building with the domicile of the German ambassador, the historical buildings are now also used as a kindergarten for the German community, office rooms of the Chamber of Foreign Trade, an art academy with artist’s housings and workshops, a concert hall and chapel as well as administration buildings. The areal measures 18 ha.
