Alt-Treptow (German pronunciation: [ˌʔaltˈtʁeːptoː], Old Treptow) is a German locality in the borough of Treptow-Köpenick in Berlin. Known also as Treptow it was, until 2001, the main and the eponymous locality of the former Treptow borough.

History[edit]

The locality, first inhabited in 6th century by Slavic peoples, was first mentioned in 1568 with the name of Trebow. It merged into Berlin with the Greater Berlin Act in 1920. From 1961 to 1989 its north and western borders were crossed by the Berlin Wall. From January 1, 2001 the former borough of Treptow, composed also by Plänterwald, Baumschulenweg, Niederschöneweide, Johannisthal, Adlershof, Altglienicke and Bohnsdorf; was disestablished to merge into the new Treptow-Köpenick borough.[1]

Geography[edit]

It borders with the localities of Plänterwald, Neukölln (in Neukölln borough), Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg (in Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg borough). Bordered in north by the Spree river it counts in its territory an islet named "Insel der Jugend" (Youth Island).
