Heinersdorf is very green and hasn't lost its small-town character. Single-family and two-family houses predominate here.

During the GDR era, a satellite city was supposed to be built in Heinersdorf. Since the building site turned out to be unsuitable, it was later erected in Marzahn instead. Nevertheless, Heinersdorf got a highway feeder road because of it.

Village Church and Water Tower

Heinersdorf is very green and has a small-town character. It is home to many allotment gardens, which have always been popular with Berliners. Detached and semi-detached houses dominate the view. The historic village center around the old fieldstone church is still recognizable. However, it has almost completely lost its village character. Apart from the church, the old fire station from 1750 and the 46 meter high Heinersdorf water tower, which was built in 1911, are also worth seeing.

Pankow-Heinersdorf Station

At Pankow-Heinersdorf station, the decaying roundhouse immediately stands out to visitors. It belongs to the adjacent railroad depot, which was shut down in the late 1990s. The railroad site is a sideshow of the Pankower Tor construction project, a planned urban neighborhood with 2,000 apartments. The investor has to have the locomotive shed and other dermal buildings repaired. The city train station itself was one of the first stations in Berlin to be served by electrically powered trains. It was opened in October 1893.

New Homes in Heinersdorf

Since Heinersdorf was never a trade or business location, it never developed metropolitan flair. After the German reunification, roads were repaired and dilapidated sewers were made functional. Houses were beautified and many new homes were built. There are new modern housing estates on Eigerstraße, Blumenwinkel and Idunastraße, among others.
