The Summer Residence of the German Consulate
Abdülhamit II, who is also known as the Red Sultan, had passed his adolescence years in this mansion. He had later given it as a present to Kaiser Wilhelm against his acceptance of re-establishing the navy of the Ottoman Empire. This group of houses were designed by the Belgian architect Cingra, and located in Tarabya, whose name is derived from the fact that this location was a center for therapy. These buildings have an orchard of approximately 45 acres, and it is one of the greenest spots in the Bosphorus.
