Malchow is a German locality (Ortsteil) in the borough (Bezirk) of Lichtenberg, Berlin. Until 2001 it was part of the former Hohenschönhausen borough. With a population of 450 (2008) it is the least-populated Berliner Ortsteil.[1]

History[edit]

The locality was first mentioned in 1344. Until 1920 it was an autonomous municipality merged into Berlin with the Greater Berlin Act. A former civil parish of it, Stadtrandsiedlung Malchow, was divided from Malchow in 1985, becoming an Ortsteil of the former borough of Weißensee (still part of Pankow district in 2001).

Geography[edit]

Malchow is located in the north-eastern suburb of Berlin, and counts in its territory a little lake named Malchower See. It borders with the localities of Wartenberg, Neu-Hohenschönhausen and Stadtrandsiedlung Malchow.

Transport[edit]

The locality, crossed by the Außenring railway line, is not served by any station. The nearest Berlin S-Bahn stop is Wartenberg, on S75 line, that ends there. It has been projected to continue the S75 track in 2015 on the Außenring from Wartenberg to Karow, but a station for Malchow, hypothesized, is still not officially scheduled on the plan.[2]

The village's main road, Malchower Dorfstraße, is part of the B2, the German longest federal highway.
