Like the neighboring districts of Kaulsdorf and Mahlsdorf, Biesdorf has an almost village-like character with many single-family houses and spacious garden plots.

Biesdorf is bordered by the route of the urban railway, Märkische Allee and Allee der Kosmonauten, Elisabethstraße, the Marzahn Recreation Park with the Gardens of the World, the river Wuhle and the district border to Köpenick. The old village green is located on the main state road to Frankfurt/Oder. The late classicistic Biesdorf Palace has been restored, and events are held in the adjacent palace garden in the summer.

Getreideviertel, Ringelnatz Estate and Kolonie Daheim

The urban railway line divides Biesdorf into a northern and a southern part. Oberfeldstraße, with its shops for daily groceries and necessities, lies in the northern part. The surrounding area consists of detached and semi-detached houses with gardens. The neighborhood Getreideviertel ("grain quarter") looks similar. Most of the homes here were built until 1933 and were partly damaged during the war. Since 2002, there is also the residential park Erntedankweg next to the railway line.

The residential area Cecilienstraße in the north was built in the early 1980s as part of the large Marzahn housing estate. In the immediate vicinity lies the newer Ringelnatz housing estate on Cecilienstraße, and Kienberg between Joachim-Ringelnatz-Straße and Hans-Fallada-Straße. This area features some two- to three-storey town villas. It is quiet, green, and crossed by a watercourse. To its west is the Kolonie Daheim, located around Fridolinweg and Ingeweg. The neighborhood was built in 1932 and is characterized by small house types.

Köpenicker Straße, Biesdorf-Center and Paradiessiedlung

The southern part of Biesdorf is characterized by a housing estate around Köpenicker Straße with houses from various eras, including detached and semi-detached houses, dachas, and country houses. A new housing estate was built around Elsterwerdaer Platz.

The area around the shopping mall Biesdorf-Center features restored listed buildings as well as new buildings and terraced houses in the Grüne Aue and Habichtshorst housing estates and the neighborhood called Paradiessiedlung (Paradise settlement), which is located between the subway and suburban railway and Blumberger Damm.

The Schmetterlingswiesen (butterfly meadows) are used for local recreation and offer a couple of playground areas for families. A plant strip separates the playgrounds from the newly built residential area to their west, which features terraced, semi-detached, and multi-family houses.

Villa District Biesdorf-South and Kolonie Biesenhorst

The villa district Biesdorf-South was built around the turn of the century. It is located around Schwabenplatz between Zimmermann- and Heesestraße, Köpenicker Straße and the river Wuhle. Only a few houses here are really villas, most of them are single-family homes. The avenues are lined with old trees. The neighborhood dubbed Kolonie Biesenhorst in the very southwest of Biesdorf is located close to the Wuhlheide forest and the regional railway line. It consists of single-family houses and allotment gardens.
