Marzahn: Residential Areas & Infrastructure

The district of Marzahn is characterized by concrete apartment buildings, many green spaces, and a good traffic situation.

Residential Areas

Due to the lack of affordable apartments in the capital, the extensive renovation and demolition of old prefabricated buildings, and the creation of numerous green spaces, the district of Berlin-Marzahn is becoming increasingly attractive for residents. If you prefer new construction to old buildings, then Marzahn with its 60,000 renovated and upgraded apartments is just the right place for you. Far away from the city centre, life here is quiet and relatively inexpensive. There are also some housing estates consisting of single-family homes.


Marzahn is located in the east of Berlin and borders on the state of Brandenburg, with the towns of Ahrensfelde and Hoheneiche and the shopping mall Kaufpark Eiche, in the northeast.

Public Transport

Numerous tram and bus lines serve the district. There are also two city railway lines (the S7 to Ahrensfelde and the S5 to Strausberg Nord) and a subway line that stops in Biesdorf (the U5 to Hönow). Ahrensfelde has an S-Bahn station and a regional train station.

Traffic Axes

The roads in Marzahn are very well developed,and take you to the eastern center of Berlin quickly. The main traffic axes are Landsberger Allee, Märkische Allee, Allee der Kosmonauten, Alt-Biesdorf (B1/5), and Köpenicker Straße/Blumberger Damm.
