An industrial location rich in tradition, the neighborhood of Siemensstadt now offers housing estates in the "Neues Bauen" architectural style.

The district of Siemensstadt is bordered by the Hohenzollern Canal to the north, the Spree River to the south, and Jungfernheideweg to the east.

Industrial Site Siemensstadt

Siemensstadt is one of Germany's oldest and best-known industrial locations and is still predominantly industrial today. The area has retained a historical character. Siemens built its own commercial and residential town here in the east of the Spandau district. Its ten- to fifteen-storey with their characteristic red facades are listed monuments.

Gartenfeld Business Park

Siemensstadt is known for its large housing estates, some of them in the Neues Bauen style, as well as isolated old buildings from the turn of the century and tree-lined streets. The island of Gartenfeld is located in the northwest of the neighborhood. Various production facilities were located here. Since 2002 it has been transformed into the Gartenfeld Business Park.

Alt-Siemensstadt on Nonnendammallee

Alt-Siemensstadt consists of the Nonnendamm housing estate, which was built between 1904 and 1914 on both sides of Nonnendammallee. Most of its 4-storey residential buildings with their tenant gardens have been preserved in their historical style. The tenant gardens are also still there.

Settlement Heimat

The central and northern parts of Siemensstadt include various housing estates: The Heimat settlement, built from 1930 to 1935, is located between Schuckertdamm, Quellweg, Goebelstraße, and Lenther Steig. It is characterized by row-shaped buildings with mansard hipped roofs, which give the area a rural character. There are generous green spaces and gardens in the surrounding area.

Siemensstadt Housing Estate

The large housing estate Siemensstadt is a listed building and has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since July of 2008. It is also known as the Ring- or Reformsiedlung. Most of it belongs to the district of Charlottenburg, only the western part is located in Spandau. The housing estate is bordered by Heckerdamm, Popitzweg, Jungfernheideweg, Mäckeritzstraße, Goebelplatz, and Geißlerpfad. Its flat terraced buildings in the Neues Bauen style are interspersed with green belts and were built between 1929 and 1931. They are two to five storeys high.

Siemens Settlement

The Siemens settlement (Siemens-Siedlung) is located between Harriesstraße, Dihlmannstraße, Rohrdamm, and Heidewinkel. It was built from 1922 to 1932. Until the 1980s, it was intended only for Siemens employees and their families. The garden city movement served as a model for its construction, and the neighborhood accordingly features terraced houses and multi-storey residential buildings with a rural character.

Housing Estates Rohrdamm-West and Saatwinkler Damm

Siemensstadt also has two other housing estates in the north. The Rohrdamm-West housing estate was built in the 1950s and 60s and is located to the west of Rohrdamm. It mainly features four-storey apartment blocks and also the highest residential tower in the district with 16 storeys. The Saatwinkler Damm housing estate lies east of Rohrdamm and parallel to Saatwinkler Damm. Its multi-storey terraced high-rise buildings were built in 1975.
