At 1920s the „Green north of Berlin“ expanded with Reinickendorf. This district is characterized by forest areas, big lakes and the river Havel. Thus it is ideal for water sports enthusiasts and for those who like long walks in nature.
In the 20s the so called „weiße Stadt“ was built along the Aroser alley. It was designed by the architect Otto-Rudolph-Salvisberg and is one of the six listed „settlements of Berlin modernism” on the list of the Unesco world heritage. The best known place in Reinickendorf and hub of Berlin surely is Tegel airport. In 2013 more then 19 million people checked in and out.
District areas: Reinickendorf, Tegel, Konradshöhe, Heiligensee, Wittenau, Frohnau, Hermsdorf, Waidmannslust, Lübars, Märkisches Viertel
Especially from the architectural point of view, Reinickendorf is a very interesting district. The interplay between village idylls, places of residence and industrial heritage is especially attractive. You find ancient farms as well as modern high buildings. In between the residential areas, you find many areas still used for commercial or industrial purposes. Up to today the business structure is well developed and is home to many producing companies.
Depending on the district area the public transport is quite well developed. In the western part of Reinickendorf you have the U6 running to Alt-Tegel and in the east the U8 runs towards Wittenau. Furthermore there are the 3 railway lines: S25 to Heiligensee via Tegel; S85 and S1 from Pankow to Waidmannslust and Frohnau. Busses complete the transport service.
