The locality emerged when the company Siemens & Halske (established in 1847 by Werner von Siemens and Johann Georg Halske, the predecessor of today's Siemens AG) bought land in the area, in order to expand production, and started to build new factories in 1899. Soon also residential buildings were erected. The locality was incorporated into Berlin on 1 October 1920 by the Greater Berlin Act.
Siemensstadt is situated in the eastern side of Spandau district. It borders with Spandau (locality), Haselhorst, Tegel (in Reinickendorf), Charlottenburg-Nord and Westend (both in Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf). The Großsiedlung Siemensstadt is situated close to Siemensstadt but in Charlottenburg-Nord.
