Tempelhof: Residential Areas & Infrastructure

Tempelhof: Residential Areas & Infrastructure

Tempelhof's cityscape is dominated by apartment buildinngs and single-family housing developments as well as industrial and commercial areas and quite a lot of greenery.

Residential Areas

Restored Gründerzeit buildings in small streets are typical for Tempelhof. The further south you go, the more village-like the surroundings become. Mariendorf, Marienfelde and Lichtenrade have a small-town flair and some well-preserved historic buildings. Life here moves at a leisurely pace despite the proximity to the urban center of Berlin.


Tempelhof is situated in the south of Berlin and borders the state of Brandenburg to the south. Despite this, the district is still quite centrally located and you can quickly reach the neighboring Schöneberg, Neukölln and Kreuzberg.

Public Transport

Tempelhof is quickly and easily accessible by public transport. The subway line U6 runs right through the center of Berlin, with its final stop in Alt-Mariendorf. The S-Bahn line S2 runs along the western border of Tempelhof while the Ringbahn runs south of the former airport.

Traffic Axes

The B96 (Tempelhofer Damm/ Mariendorfer Damm/ Lichtenrader Damm) is the most important traffic axis in Tempelhof. The A100 city highway runs through Tempelhof with two slip roads.
