The former village of Rosenthal has still retained its charming rural flair. In addition to the church, manor house and farmsteads, there are allotment gardens and newer single-family houses.
Like the neighboring Blankenfelde, the quiet and green Rosenthal district of Berlin can be traced back to an independent rural community that was incorporated into Greater Berlin in 1920.
Village Green with Church and Manor House
The village of Rosenthal was first documented in 1356. Its village church, situated on the historic village green, is even older: it was built around 1230. Also on the village green are the community center, the manor house and the old administration building. Surrounding the green are many old farmhouses with homesteads. The village church and the area around it are now under monumental protection.
Allotment Gardens and Single-Family Houses in Rosenthal
Another characteristic feature of Rosenthal are its many gardens. Most of them are allotment gardens with small pergolas. On other plots, detached houses have been built. The are only a few apartment buildings in Rosenthal, most of them only a couple storeys high.
Country House Estate and Nordend Cemetery
Around 1875, the country house estate Nordend was developed in the immediate vicinity of Rosenthal and temporarily given the name Rosenthal II. In the late 19th century, today's Nordend Cemetery was built on Dietzgenstraße, covering an area of over 40 hectares. The central avenues of the cemetery are lined with old lime trees. The rear part is now completely overgrown.
