Once an important industrial center and home to the world's largest tree nursery, Treptow is in the process of changing its image. Probably the narrowest district in Berlin, it is barely 10 kilometers wide at its thickest point, but almost 30 kilometers long.

The district's most well-known landmarks are the Treptowers, a modern office complex that at 125 meters is one of the tallest buildings in the city, and the 30-meter-high sculpture "Molecule Man", which stands in front of the Treptowers right in the middle of the Spree river. The Soviet Memorial in Treptower Park and the Spreepark in Plänterwald are also well-known beyond regional borders.

Treptow used to be a very popular destination for day trips, and some places still bear witness to this fact. The Treptow Pier is the main dock for excursion boats. However, Treptow is not only suitable for recreation. The district has also become popular with many large companies and businesses in recent years. Today, the Adlershof district of Treptow is home to one of the largest technology parks in the world.

Treptow is divided into the districts of Alt-Treptow, Baumschulenweg, Plänterwald, Niederschöneweide, Johannisthal, Adlershof, Altglienicke and Bohnsdorf.
