Reinickendorf

Reinickendorf

Located in the northwest of Berlin, Reinickendorf is a district full of contrasts.Ffrom complete peace and quiet in Tegel Forest to the city villas in Frohnau and the high-rise buildings of the neighborhood Märkisches Viertel, you can find everything here.

The district is also home to Berlin's oldest tree - the "Dicke Marie" oak - and the city's oldest high-rise building in Berlin, the 65-meter high Borsigturm. The name Borsig marked the beginning of an industrial tradition that still plays an important role in the district today.

The people of Reinickendorf have a distinct local patriotism. Many residents have lived here all their lives, quite a few are pensioners and families. The residential buildings are lower than those in neighboring Wedding, with the exception of the high-rise housing estate Märkisches Viertel.

The district is rich in forest and water - about one third of the area is made up of it. Tegeler Forst and Tegeler See are popular excursion destinations, not only among the local residents.

The district of Reinickendorf is divided into the local districts Reinickendorf, Tegel, Konradshöhe, Heiligensee, Wittenau, Frohnau, Hermsdorf, Waidmannslust, Lübars, and Märkisches Viertel.
