Pankow

Pankow

Elegant and bourgeois but by no means boring: this is how the district of Pankow presents itself.

Pankow is divided into two parts by the S-Bahn line S2. The south is rather quiet and bourgeois with different types of residential buildings. The area was partially destroyed during World War II. This is especially noticeable around Naumannstraße, where many new blocks of flats have replaced the destroyed buildings. The north of Pankpw towards Bürgerpark and the Schönhausen Palace gardens features more old buildings as well as small stores and the main shopping mile of Pankow, Breite Straße.

Amalienpark

The area around the Amalienpark is characterized by upper middle-class houses and small front gardens. The Amalienpark itself is a country house style housing estate. Around Kavaliersstraße there are beautiful old buildings. The Schönhausen Palace Gardens, through which the small Panke stream winds its way, are in the immediate vicinity.

Kissingenviertel

The Kissingenviertel south of the forer Pankow freight yard is a housing estate from the 1920s. There are various residential complexes here, such as "Birkenhof", "Tannenhof" or "Kastanienhof" as well as "Zeppelin" with Zeppelin roofs as an architectural feature.

Pankower Tor

On the site of the old freight yard, between the Pankow and Pankow-Heinersdorf S-Bahn stations, a new neighborhood by the name of Pankower Tor (Pankow Gate) is going to be created. 2000 apartments are planned, plus shopping facilities, a school, a park and a large bicycle parking garage.
