Niederschöneweide (German pronunciation: [ˈniːdərˈʃøːnəˈvaɪ̯də] (listen), literally Lower Schöneweide) is a German locality (Ortsteil) within the Berlin borough (Bezirk) of Treptow-Köpenick. It is, with Oberschöneweide (Upper Schöneweide), part of the geographic quarter of Schöneweide. Until 2001 it was part of the former borough of Treptow.

History[edit]

First mentioned in 1598 as Schöne Weyde, it became an autonomous municipality in 1850, growing as an industrial town at the end of 19th century. In 1920 it merged into Berlin with the "Greater Berlin Act". Between 1949 and 1990 it was part of East Berlin, and new residential complexes were established at Oberspree. All the industries on the territory were converted into Volkseigener Betrieb (VEB), the state-owned enterprises.[2] In 1994, after German reunification, it started a plan for a redevelopment of many contaminated grounds on many areas, inheritance of the heavy industrial era. They must be cleared away and detoxified with high costs.[3]
