Lankwitz is a German locality (Ortsteil) within the borough (Bezirk) of Steglitz-Zehlendorf, Berlin. Until 2001 it was part of the former borough of Steglitz.

History[edit]

The locality was first mentioned in 1239 with the name of Lankowice.[1] Autonomous Prussian municipality of the former Teltow district, Lankwitz was incorporated into Berlin in 1920, with the "Greater Berlin Act".

Geography[edit]

Lankwitz is situated in the southern suburb of Berlin, close the borders with the Brandenburg. It borders with the localities of Steglitz, Lichterfelde, Mariendorf, Marienfelde (both in Tempelhof-Schöneberg district) and, in a short point represented by a bridge over the Teltowkanal, with Tempelhof.[2] The Teltowkanal also remarks the boundary between Lankwitz and Steglitz.

The locality is served by S-Bahn at the rail station of Lankwitz (line S25). The S2 only crosses the quarter and remarks its border with Mariendorf. Lankwitz is also served by numerous bus lines.
