The district Charlottenburg-North is located east of the Havel and north of the Spree. It is largely characterised by residential areas, allotment gardens and the Jungfernheide public park.
The Jungfernheide is a former estate district. The Volkspark Jungfernheide is located here; the Jungfernheide S-Bahn station is an important transfer point in northwest Berlin.
Housing settlement Charlottenburg-Nord and Ringsiedlung
The "Ringsiedlung", the Charlottenburg part of Siemensstadt, is located around Goebelplatz. It is considered an example of the progressive housing construction of the 1920s. The mostly five-story rows of apartments are surrounded by open spaces and green strips. Scharoun's "Battleships", reminiscent of ship architecture, are a striking feature of the settlement. To the east, the second expansion of Siemensstadt was built between 1956 and 1961, the housing estate Charlottenburg-Nord with approx. 4000 apartments, also planned by Scharoun.
Paul Hertz Settlement
The Paul Hertz housing estate is characterised by social housing construction. It is located between an allotment garden area in the east, the Heckerdamm in the north, and is bordered to the south and west by city motorways (A100 and A111). This gives it an island position.
Plötzensee and Plötzensee Memorial
Lake Plötzensee itself belongs to the Wedding district in the Mitte district. But the Plötzensee district between Saatwinkler Damm and Stadtring (A 100) belongs to Charlottenburg-North. In addition to an industrial park and allotment gardens, the Plötzensee Memorial and the Plötzensee Prison are located here.
