Map of the locality

Wartenberg is a German locality (Ortsteil) within the borough (Bezirk) of Lichtenberg, Berlin. Until 2001 it was part of the former borough of Hohenschönhausen.

History[edit]

The locality was established in the course of the German Ostsiedlung after the establishment of the Margraviate of Brandenburg by Albert the Bear in 1157. It was first mentioned in a 1270 margravial deed as Wardenberge and again in the 1375 domesday book of Emperor Charles IV. The estates of Wartenberg manor were acquired by the City of Berlin in 1882. Until 1920, it was a municipality in the former Niederbarnim district of the Prussian Brandenburg Province, then merged into Berlin with the "Greater Berlin Act".[1]
