Farmhouses, cobblestone streets, horses, sheep, and agriculture: Lübars may be a part of Berlin, but it feels like a village in many places.
Lübars in the north-east of Reinickendorf has the classic structure of a Brandenburg village: a village green, a church, some single-storey classicist farmhouses, a village inn, horse breeding, and surrounding farmland. Lübars also still has some functioning family-run farms.
Neighborhoods in Lübars
The first expansion of the village took place around the turn of the century, when the "Vogtland" settlement was built in front of the actual village. After the incorporation into Berlin in 1920, further housing estates were built, such as the Kriegsheimstätten on Zabel-Krüger-Damm or the AEG housing estate on Kienwerder.
Lübars Leisure and Recreation Park
South of Lübars, the Lübars Leisure and Recreation Park was opened in the 1980s. Originally a landfill site, the 35-metre-high mountain of rubbish now forms the center of the park. In addition to sunbathing and playing fields, the park has an extensive network of hiking, riding and cycling paths. On its edge is the Lübars Youth Farm, where young visitors can experience everyday farming life.
Lübars Lido and Osterquelle
The Lübars lido at Ziegeleisee lake has very clear waters and is an inviting place to swim, sunbathe, and splash around. East of Lübars, on Schildower Weg, is the "Osterquelle", the last free-flowing spring in Berlin.
