Aweiden was neighbored by Ponarth to the northwest, Speichersdorf to the north, and Schönfliess to the east. The estate of Aweiden was controlled by Königsberg by 1550; Johann Schnürlein, mayor of Kneiphof and ducal chamberlain, owned it in 1579. Aweiden was sold in 1660 after a fire, but was eventually owned by the ducal official Friedrich Kupner (1648-1719).
In the 19th century the estate was recreationally visited by Königsberg's upper classes. Politically active students from the University of Königsberg held a commercium in Aweiden in 1835. A competition featuring 600 gymnasts was held in Aweiden in 1862; it was so well-received that the Collegium Fridericianum made it an annual event.
