Waidmannslust is a German locality (Ortsteil) within the borough (Bezirk) of Reinickendorf, Berlin.

History[edit]

The locality was created in 1875 as a Villenkolonie.[1] In 1920 it merged in the city of Berlin with the Greater Berlin Act. During the period 1949–1990 it was part of the French sector of West Berlin. Some building elements and some street names (e.g. Avenue Charles de Gaulle, Allee Marie Curie, Rue Montesquieu) bear testament to the former French presence in this area.
