Wartenberg

Wartenberg

Wartenberg used to be a small village built on a meadow. Today, it is part of the north of Hohenschönhausen and features not only farmhouses but also some apartment buildings. Nevertheless, Wartenberg has retained a touch of its former village flair despite the changing times.

When people talk about Wartenberg, they often refer the 1980s housing estate in Neu-Hohenschönhausen with its S-Bahn station of the same name. However, the district Berlin-Wartenberg is located north of it and looks quite different. Single-family houses and two to three-storey apartment buildings dominate the picture and a few old farm houses are preserved in the listed village center.

Residential Park at Wartenberg Manor

A new, traffic-calmed residential park with terraced, semi-detached and detached houses has been created around the old manor house in the south of Wartenberg. Its center is a large square with old chestnut and hawthorn trees. During the GDR era, the area was the site of an engineering school. The listed old manor house has been renovated in accordance with its original historical style.

Single-Family Houses and Private Gardens

On the fields in the east of Wartenberg, many single-family houses with well-kept gardens have been built in recent years. In addition, there are allotment gardens both on the eastern and western borders of the district, providing the inhabitants of the more densely populated areas with the opportunity to grow vegetables and relax in nature. In between lies the landscape park Wartenberger Feldmark.

Landscape Park Wartenberger Feldmark

The landscape park Wartenberger Feldmark is located on former irrigation fields from the 19th century. The paths winding through the park were laid out in 2000 and are popular with cyclists and skaters. Orchard meadows and a small mixed forest are planned. Scottish highland cattle and Heck cattle graze on a pasture.
