Köpenick

Köpenick lies embedded between forest and water and thus receives an island position. The enchanting old town with its castle and town hall attracts tourists.

    Köpenick old town

This site is under construction. Please come back later.

Köpenick old town

The old town of Köpenick has been thoroughly renovated in recent years: Gaps between buildings have been closed, green and open spaces have been redesigned and street spaces have been structured in a user-friendly way. Mostly renovated two-storey buildings from the 18th and 19th centuries have been built. Around the Schlossplatz, there is a slightly higher elevation.

Kietzer Vorstadt and Wendenschloß

East of the old town is the former fishing settlement Kietzer Vorstadt. There are still many restored single-storey fishermen's houses with gable roofs between magnificent Wilhelminian style old buildings. At the southern end of the Wendenschloßstraße, embedded by the Dahme and Kämmereiheide, is the villa colony Wendenschloß, which dates from the turn of the century. Many of the residential buildings have water properties. To the north is the settlement of Kietzer Feld. The new buildings from the 1950s and 1960s have all been modernized.

Amtsfeld and Kämmereiheide in Köpenick

In the northern part of the Wendenschloßstraße many new buildings have been constructed. This is also the location of the Salvador Allende quarter, a prefabricated high-rise housing estate from the 1970s, which was expanded in the 1980s and has since been upgraded and renovated. The inner courtyards are generously landscaped and the Kämmereiheide landscape conservation area is in the immediate vicinity. City villas and five-storey buildings have been built on the "Bullenacker" on the Müggelspree and Am Amtsgraben. Between the houses there are tenant gardens and lots of greenery.

Sophisticated living in the Dammvorstadt

North of the old town is the Dammvorstadt, a popular shopping street in Köpenick. The quarter is characterised by a high stock of old buildings. Several new buildings have been constructed in recent years, for example on the Krusenick peninsula south of Friedrichshagener Straße and around Lindenstraße. On the Kodak site on Friedrichshagener Straße, upscale residential buildings have been constructed.

Köpenick-Nord with garden city character

Köpenick-Nord consists of the settlements Dammfeld, Elsengrund, Uhlenhorst and Wolfsgarten. There is also the "Märchenviertel". The settlements have garden city character and are situated between Wuhlheide and Dammheide. The rest of the area is dominated by detached houses and apartment buildings.

Köllnische Vorstadt and Spindlersfeld

West of the old town lies the Köllnische Vorstadt. Here, industry and new development areas from the 1970s and 1980s dominate on the western edge. Spindlersfeld developed from a factory settlement of the industrial laundry. The workers' housing estate on Mentzelstrasse and Färberstrasse - the Spindler buildings - is now a listed building. It is surrounded by 1950s buildings. More than 800 freehold flats, lofts, townhouses and terraced houses are currently being built on the factory site.
