Rudow

Rudow

Rudow enjoyed a peripheral location when Berlin was divided by the Wall, but now the neighborhood gets quite a lot of through traffic. Beyond the main traffic routes, however, Rudow is still quiet and tranquil.

When Berlin was divided into East and West, Rudow had a peripheral location. It only got a connection to the subway network when the Gropiusstadt housing estate was constructed. Today, Rudow is located close to the BER Airport and has a connection to the city freeway. This creates a lot of through traffic on the main traffic axes.

Single and Multi-Family Houses in Rudow

Rudow is built similar to the neighborhood of Buckow: single- and multi-family houses, apartment blocks, a lot of green in between, and a few isolated farms. There is also a large industrial and commercial area next to the Teltow Canal. The Rudower Fliess and the Rudower Höhe, a 70-meter-high mountain of rubble with a toboggan run, walking paths, and a playground, are a great place for local recreation.

Rudower Felder: New Buildings and Parks

In Rudow-South, a lot of new construction has happened over the last years. The project "Rudower Felder" consists of new buildings with about 1700 apartments framed by parks. Furthermore, there is the Garden City Rudow with its so-called Frauenviertel, a neighborhood of single-family terraced and semi-detached houses and multi-family houses.

Village Church Rudow and Old Village Center

Traces of the old Rudow village center can still be found today. The village church of Rudow, the old village school, and several old farmhouses bear witness to Rudow's past as a Markish village, which was first mentioned in documents in 1373.
