Baumschulenweg is a German locality (Ortsteil) within the Berlin borough (Bezirk) of Treptow-Köpenick. Until 2001 it was part of the former borough of Treptow. Its name means road (weg) of the plant nurseries (Baumschulen). It was named after the Späth nursery.

History[edit]

The village was first settled around 1823 and in 1920, as part of the former municipality of Treptow, it merged into Berlin with the "Greater Berlin Act". In 1945 it became an autonomous locality separated from Alt-Treptow. From 1961 to 1989 Baumschulenweg was crossed by the Berlin Wall due to its position on East Berlin partially bounded by West Berlin.[1] In Sonnenallee it was located a checkpoint to Neukölln.[2]

Geography[edit]

It borders with Plänterwald, Oberschöneweide, Niederschöneweide, Johannisthal, Neukölln, Britz and Rudow. The boundaries with this 3 Ortsteile of Neukölln district are almost totally remarked by the two canals.
