Müggelheim 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 village was founded on June 1, 1747, by 20 families from Odernheim am Glan, in Rhineland-Palatinate.[1] By 1920 it was still an autonomous municipality, the lesser-populated one (186 inhabitants) merging into the German capital with the "Greater Berlin Act".[2]
