Friedrichshagen is a German locality (Ortsteil) within the Berlin borough (Bezirk) of Treptow-Köpenick. Until 2001 it was part of the former borough of Köpenick.

History[edit]

The colony of Friedrichsgnade was founded on May 29, 1753 by the king Frederick II of Prussia. Autonomous Prussian municipality of the former Niederbarnim district until 1920, it merged into Berlin with the "Greater Berlin Act".[1] From 1949 to 1990 it was part of East Berlin.[2]

Geography[edit]

Overview[edit]

Located in the south-eastern suburb of Berlin, Friedrichshagen borders with the Brandenburger municipalities of Hoppegarten (in Märkisch-Oderland district), and Schöneiche (in Oder-Spree). It is also bounded by the Berliner localities of Köpenick and Rahnsdorf. The residential area is surrounded in north by a big portion of the Berliner Stadtforst (city forest), and in south by the river Müggelspree (tributary of the Spree), and by the western side of Müggelsee, the biggest lake in Berlin.
