Kaulsdorf

Kaulsdorf has suburban character and many single-family houses as well as a few prefabricated housing estates in the north.

    The "Berlin balcony" between the districts of Kaulsdorf and Mahlsdorf. The wooden artwork reminds visitors of the Bock windmill, which stood here from 1808 to 1936.
Kaulsdorf is bordered by the small Wuhle river, Gülzower Straße and Uckermarkstraße in the west, Grottkauer Straße in the north, Ernst-Haeckel-Straße, Am Kornfeld and Kressenweg in the east, and Dammheide in the south. At the border to Mahlsdorf lies the so-called "Berlin Balcony", a largely undeveloped area. More nature is offered by the Kaulsdorf lakes and the Wuhletal meadows.

Kaulsdorf-South

The district of Berlin-Kaulsdorf is dominated by modest single-family houses, cobblestone streets and spacious plots of land. Many new homes have been built here in recent years. Together with those in Mahlsdorf and Biesdorf, the neighborhood forms Germany's largest contiguous area of detached and semi-detached houses.

Alt-Kaulsdorf

In the old, well-preserved village center around Dorfstraße, south of the Wuhletal S-Bahn station, some one- and two-storey renovated farm and town houses from the 18th and 19th centuries have been preserved. The core of the village church dates from the 13th century. Newlyweds walk through its historic wedding gate after the marriage ceremony. The church spire was shot down by German anti-aircraft gunners during the Second World War and was only reconstructed in 1999 in accordance with the regulations for historic monuments.

Kaulsdorf-North

Like the neighbouring Hellersdorf, Kaulsdorf-North is characterized by prefabricated concrete buildings. Depending on the area, the buildings are 11 storeys or five to six storeys high. The Spree-Center shopping mall offers daily essentials as well as services and some gastronomy. On Wernerstraße, there is a rather new housing estate with city villas and semi-detached houses. These houses were built in the mid-1990s in solid and timber-frame construction. Some feature large gardens and green roofs.
