Right up front: The suburban settlement Malchow is not to be confused with the Hohenschönhausen neighborhood of Malchow. The actual settlement is located in the very south of the Suburban Settlement Malchow. It was built in the 1930s on former sewage fields. The streets bear names of figures and places from Nordic mythology.

The Suburban Settlement Malchow Is Sparsely Populated

The neighborhood consists mainly of simple single-family homes and semi-detached houses. North of it is an allotment garden area. The rest of the district is largely undeveloped and is still mainly used for agriculture. The Suburban Settlement Malchow is one of the most sparsely populated districts in Berlin. Only Blankenfelde has fewer people per square kilometer.

Suburban Park "Neue Wiesen"

For local recreation there is the suburban park "Neue Wiesen" in the north, which belongs to the Barnim Nature Park. It is a green ribbon about 700 meters long, lined with birch trees. The hiking route Barnimer Dörferweg leads through it. A skating facility and a small toboggan hill are also located in the park. Karower Feldgraben and Laake provide a habitat for aquatic animals. The park is surrounded by meadows and small woods as well as Berlin's second golf course, which was opened in 2005.
