Glienicke/Nordbahn is located on the northern outskirts of Berlin. The addition "Nordbahn" (Northern Railway) is based on the proximity to the 19th century-built railway line Berlin-Stralsund, the Prussian Northern Railway. The town is bordered to the south and west by the district Reinickendorf of Berlin (localities Frohnau, Hermsdorf (Berlin) and Lübars) and Schönfließ, Mühlenbecker Land. Between 1961 and 1990 was situated at the eastern border of the Berlin Wall. The village is a typical Angerdorf (meadow) of the Mark Brandenburg. The highest point of the village is the "Langeberg" with 55 m.ü.NN.
From Glienicke there are 10 Miles (17 km) to Oranienburg, 25 Miles (44 km) to Potsdam, 180 Miles (270 km) to Stralsund near the Baltic See, 180 Miles (271 km) to Hamburg and 90 Miles (150 km) to Cottbus.

- Devastated during the War of Thirty Years.
- Reestablished from 1670.
- During the Cold War, Glienicke shared its borders with the former West Berlin, and so between 1961 and 1990 it was separated from it by the Berlin Wall.
- After the reunification of Germany, Glienicke developed as a preferred suburb of Berlin.
After (East) Berlin, Glienicke/Nordbahn is the most densely populated municipality of any type in what was formerly East Germany, ahead of third-place Eichwalde (both are classified as rural municipalities, or Gemeinden), and well ahead of larger municipalities with city ("Stadt") status, such as Leipzig, Halle, and Dresden.
