Lankwitz is a German locality (Ortsteil) within the borough (Bezirk) of Steglitz-Zehlendorf, Berlin. Until 2001 it was part of the former borough of Steglitz.


The locality was first mentioned in 1239 with the name of Lankowice.[1] Autonomous Prussian municipality of the former Teltow district, Lankwitz was incorporated into Berlin in 1920, with the "Greater Berlin Act".


Lankwitz is situated in the southern suburb of Berlin, close the borders with the Brandenburg. It borders with the localities of Steglitz, Lichterfelde, Mariendorf, Marienfelde (both in Tempelhof-Schöneberg district) and, in a short point represented by a bridge over the Teltowkanal, with Tempelhof.[2] The Teltowkanal also remarks the boundary between Lankwitz and Steglitz.


The locality is served by S-Bahn at the rail station of Lankwitz (line S25). The S2 only crosses the quarter and remarks its border with Mariendorf. Lankwitz is also served by numerous bus lines.
