Sights

This green district in the northwest of Berlin is home to a few places of particular interest. One of those is the Schloss Tegel. It was originally built in 1558 and has been rebuilt and extended many times since. It has belonged to the Humboldt family since 1766 and is often referred to as the Humboldt Schloss. Wilhelm von Humboldt, the founder of the Berlin Humboldt Museum, and his brother Alexander von Humboldt, a natural scientist, grew up here. Visitors can view the Schloss, the Humboldt Museum which is housed within the grounds, as well as the Schlosspark.

A further place of interest in Reinickendorf is the Russian-Orthodox cemetery. It was first designated at the End of the 19th Century. Russian-Orthodox believers were supposed to be interred here in accordance with orthodox beliefs. In order for Russian Emigrants who were a long way from home to be able to be buried in Russian soil, several thousand tons of earth were transported from the former Tsarist empire to Berlin. There is a chapel in the middle of the cemetery that is modelled on the Basilikus Cathedral in Moscow.    

The Borsig Tower in the Tegel district also counts as one of the sights that speaks of the history of the district. At a height of 65 metres it literally towers over and beyond the district. It was built in 1922 and at the time was the first high-rise building in Berlin. Designed by architect Eugen Schmohl, the tower was part of the former factory compound of the Borsigwerke, one of Europe´s largest manufacturers of locomotives. Today, the tower houses offices.

District with Untapped Potential for Growth

As a consequence of growing demand for living space in centralised areas of Berlin, square meter prices have increased in Reinickendorf as well. The opening of BER airport and the subsequent cease of Tegel airport services can be expected to compound on this effect. That is the conclusion of CBRE and Berlin Hyp's current report on the Berlin housing market.
