Weißensee

Weißensee

Weißensee is a bit inconspicuous and has a lovable small-town character. It is quieter here than in the trendy districts, but still urban. The students of the Weißensee Art Academy provide a lively flair.

In Weißensee there are both old buildings and elegant new developments. The district has a lot of greenery to offer. There are many parks, such as the Weißenseer Park with its lido, open-air stage and listed excursion pub "Milchhäuschen", as well as allotment gardens and the nature reserve Am Faulen See with its various bird species and rare plants.

In addition, the district is home to the Jewish Cemetery Weißensee, the largest Jewish cemetery in Europe with 115,000 graves.

Weißensee today belongs to the administrative district of Pankow. It is divided into the districts of Weißensee, Karow, Blankenburg, Heinersdorf and Stadtrandsiedlung Malchow.
