On July 1, 1989, the Hellersdorf district was reached by the Berlin subway with the opening of the Elsterwerdaer Platz - Hönow subway section of today's U5 line .

In the 1980s, the large housing estate Hellersdorf extended beyond the Berlin city limits and was therefore partly in the area of ​​the municipality of Hönow in the Frankfurt (Oder) district . This piece of territory with an area of ​​150  hectares was finally incorporated into Berlin and thus into the Hellersdorf district by the German-German unification treaty on October 3, 1990.

In 1997 the newly built city center of Helle Mitte was completed, which has since formed the urban center of Hellersdorf. On January 1, 2001, the Hellersdorf district was merged with the Marzahn district to form the new Marzahn-Hellersdorf district as part of the Berlin district reform .
