Mahlsdorf is a locality (Ortsteil) within the Berlin borough (Bezirk) of Marzahn-Hellersdorf. Until 2001 it was part of the former borough of Hellersdorf.


The locality was mentioned for the first time in a document of 1345, named as Malterstorp. Until 1920 it was a municipality of the former Niederbarnim district, merged into Berlin with the "Greater Berlin Act".[1]



Mahlsdorf is located in the eastern suburb of Berlin, at the borders with the Brandenburger district of Märkisch-Oderland. It is bounded by the municipality of Neuenhagen and Hoppegarten, with its hamlets Hönow, Waldesruh and Birkenstein. The Berliner bordering localities are Hellersdorf, Kaulsdorf and Köpenick (in Treptow-Köpenick district). In the south of the quarter there are the lakes Elsensee and part of the Habermannsee, divided with Kaulsdorf.


Mahlsdorf is divided into 2 zones (Ortslagen):


The locality, crossed by the federal highways B1 and B5, is served by the S-Bahn line S5, at the rail station of Mahlsdorf. Birkenstein station, situated in the homonymous hamlet of the town of Hoppegarten, is close to the eastern suburb of the quarter.
