Halensee is a locality (Ortsteil) of Berlin in the district (Bezirk) of Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf. Until 2004 the former neighbourhood established about 1880 was part of the Wilmersdorf locality, and until 2001 of the same-named former borough. With an area of 1.27 km² it is the smallest locality of the city after the Hansaviertel.

History[edit]

Halensee was the site of the German shooting championship in 1921. On 26 September, one Jannich won the competition firing an Ortgies semi-automatic pistol.[1]

Geography[edit]

The locality, the smallest of the Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf district, is situated in its centre and borders with Charlottenburg, Wilmersdorf, Schmargendorf, Grunewald and Westend.

It is bounded by the Bundesautobahn 100 (Stadtring) in the west and the Cicerostraße, a branch-off of the Kurfürstendamm in the east. The locality is named after the small Halensee, which however is part of the neighbouring Grunewald locality.

Transport[edit]

Halensee is served, at Berlin-Halensee station, by the Berlin S-Bahn lines S4 (the circular Ringbahn) and S46.
