    The agriculturally used slope between the districts of Kaulsdorf and Mahlsdorf shows the difference in altitude between the Berlin glacial valley and the Barnim plateau.

The district of Mahlsdorf with its many detached and semi-detached houses borders on the state of Brandenburg and the meadows of Dammheide, as well as Kauldorf to the west.

With its many single- and two-family houses, Mahlsdorf resembles Kaulsdorf and Biesdorf. Together, the districts form the largest contiguous area of detached and semi-detached houses in the whole of Germany. In addition, Mahlsdorf also features some villas and country houses.

Garden City "Lichtenberger Gartenheim"

The old village center with the village church from the 13th century and the Mahlsdorf manor park is divided by the federal road. North of the Mahlsdorf S-Bahn station lies the garden city "Lichtenberger Gartenheim", which dates back to the 1920s and was planned by Bruno Taut. The neighborhood comprises around 400 private homes. Terraced and semi-detached houses have been built on the former market garden area on Landsberger Straße. There is also an industrial park in the east of Mahlsdorf.

Mahlsdorf Manor House with Museum

Up until the fall of the Berlin Wall, the children's TV program "Sandmann" was produced in the former Lichtburg Cinema on Hutschiner Damm. Today, the site houses a supermarket on the site. Th Mahlsdorf manor house with its Museum of the Wilhelminian period (Gründerzeitmuseum) still exists. The manor house dates back to the late 18th century but was heavily modified towards the end of the 19th century. The manor park is designed as a landscape park with winding paths, trees, shrubs, and flower beds.

Berlin Balcony

The "Berlin Balcony", a special feature of Mahlsdorf, is located at the border to Kaulsdorf. It is an undeveloped slope that marks the transition from the Barnim plateau to the Berlin glacial valley. The difference in height is about 15 meters. The slope can be explored via the hiking path, which has a lookout point in the middle. The Berlin Balcony is still used for agricultural purposes.
