Marienfelde

Marienfelde

Despite its extensive industrial areas, Marienfelde still has rural features. The well-preserved and traffic-calmed historical center with its manor and park reminds you of a bygone era.

Marienfelde is primarily a residential district. The district was founded around the year 1220 by the Knights Templar. The actual urban development began only around 1875 with the opening of the Marienfeld train station and the construction of the villa district New Marienfelde. Because the heart of the district was largely destroyed during World War II, the area along the railroad line now features mostly single-family homes and apartment buildings. The houses near the old town center were built in the 1950s and 1960s. In the 1970s, the residential area along Waldsassener Straße with its high-rise buildings and the industrial area along Nahmitzer Damm were added.

Historical Village Center

The village center of Old Marienfelde has been preserved until today. Its heart is the old village church which was built around the yeat 1220 - the oldest preserved building of its kind in Berlin. Concerts are held here at regular intervals while the Christmas market in the area surrounding the church is popular annual event.
The traffic-calmed area is home to an old farm, the village pasture as well as Marienfelde Manor and its park, making it a popular recreational destination.

Mansions and Farmhouses

The neighborhood between the Marienfelde S-Bahn station and Nahmitzer Damm, which is enclosed by industrial areas, is partly suburban mansions from the early last century and partly a residential area with many listed historical farmhouses. This idyllic suburb on the edge of the big city has preserved a touch of rural flair.

Marienfelde Leisure Park

On the southern edge of the city lies the Marienfelde Leisure Park - also known as the Marienfelde Alps - and the Marienfelde meadows. The meadows are still used for agricultural purposes today. The leisure park is an extensive green space that was created on a former landfill site. Methane still escapes from the waste under the greenery to this day and is regularly burned off in a controlled manner. The Marienfelde Nature Conservation Station is in charge of this natural idyll. From the alpine peak, the view extends over Berlin as well as the Brandenburg district of Teltow-Fläming on the other side of the city border.
