Berlin’s historic neighborhoods can be defined by many factors including:

  • Ethnic group or religion of early residents
  • Land subdivision
  • Geography
  • Early house construction and/or ownership
  • Street patterns
  • Nearby major business/employer

Over time neighborhoods evolve as new residents move in and existing residents move out. The geographical area that constitutes a neighborhood, what the name of the neighborhood is, and even whether there is a neighborhood, all change over the years. Here, we have tried to include most commonly recognized neighborhoods in Berlin that can be pinned down to a location at any time in its history. Some of these neighborhoods have not been recognized as such for a century. In most cases the exact boundaries of a neighborhood aren’t clear, so we have located neighborhoods at their most commonly agreed-upon location or a location that has historical support (for instance, subdivision boundaries).

So, go ahead and explore Berlin’s historic neighborhoods. This is a work in process, so we welcome your additions to these pages.
