Hellersdorf (German pronunciation: [ˈhɛlɐsˌdɔʁf] (listen)) is a locality in the borough of Marzahn-Hellersdorf in Berlin. Between 1986 and Berlin's 2001 administrative reform, it was a borough in its own right, consisting of the current area of Hellersdorf as well as Kaulsdorf and Mahlsdorf.

History[edit]

Before German reunification in 1989 it was part of East Berlin. Situated at the eastern part of Berlin, the area is mainly a large housing estate from the 1980s, made up of Plattenbau (concrete slab) buildings.

The historic village of Helwichstorpp was first mentioned in a 1375 land registry of Emperor Charles IV, then also Margrave of Brandenburg. The city of Berlin acquired the former Hellersdorf manor in 1886; it was finally incorporated by the 1920 Greater Berlin Act as a part of the Lichtenberg borough. During German reunification on October 3, 1990, a small part of Hönow (primarily around the last two stations of U5) was annexed by this borough.

Geography[edit]
