Neukölln is the eighth administrative district of Berlin and has 329,917 inhabitants (as of December 31, 2019), who come from 160 nations. The district is one of the densely populated inner city areas in Germany.
The Neukölln district was created in 1920 through incorporation as part of the Greater Berlin Act and named after the then city of Neukölln, today's district of Berlin-Neukölln. Between 1945 and 1990 the district was part of West Berlin and was in the American sector .
With the Estrel , one of the largest hotel complexes in Europe is located in Neukölln. The company Biotronik was founded in the district and is one of the largest manufacturers of medical technology products in the Berlin / Brandenburg metropolitan region .
The north of the district in particular has been known for its student-dominated scene life and its international hipster culture since around 2010.
Neukölln is located in the southern area of the federal capital Berlin between the districts of Tempelhof-Schöneberg in the west and Treptow-Köpenick in the east and Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg in the north. Neukölln borders the state of Brandenburg in the south .
The district shows different structural structures, in the north highly dense inner-city areas, in the south more suburban loosened up, sometimes even seeming rural: The district Neukölln (also Nord-Neukölln or Neukölln 44 - named after the former zip code 1000 Berlin 44 -) is in the north of the district (between the Ringbahn and Hermannplatz ) predominantly characterized by the old buildings from the Wilhelminian era , which consist of typical Berlin tenements with green backyards. South of the Ringbahn , single-family house areas , suburban housing developments and large estates with many high-rise buildings dominate the face of the district.
The old village centers of Rixdorf with the Bohemian Village, Britz with the manor and castle and Buckow with the oldest stone church in Berlin have been embedded in these inconsistent structures .
The best-known example of socially motivated housing development / reform housing in Neukölln in the 1920s and 1930s can be found in Britz. The large Fritz-Reuter-Stadt estate was shaped by the architects Bruno Taut and Martin Wagner on the one hand and by Paul Engelmann and Emil Fangmeyer in the other part of the estate. The two parts each consist of around 1000 apartments. In the peripheral development and in the horseshoe, these are multi-family houses, otherwise single-family houses with kitchen gardens. Part of the large estate, the horseshoe settlement in the narrower sense, has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2008 .
In addition, there is a well-known example of a large post-war settlement in the south : Gropiusstadt . Along with the Märkisches Viertel , it is one of the two largest large estates in the former West Berlin. Initially called Großsiedlung Berlin-Buckow-Rudow , it was given the name of the Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius in 1972 . In 1976 the Gropiusstadt was completed and in 2002 it was separated as a separate district. Deviating from the high-rise concept of “urbanity through density” and “ car-friendly city ” as in Gropiusstadt, the high-deck housing estate for around 6,000 residents was built in the 1970s and 1980s . The urban planning concept of a functional separation of pedestrians and car traffic with elevated, greened paths (the eponymous “high decks”), which was originally assessed as innovative, quickly proved to be a failure.

Like the entire north of Neukölln , Sonnenallee and its immediate surroundings are also characterized by immigration, both from people from abroad and from the rest of Germany, who move to this area because of the comparatively low rents.
An Arab infrastructure has developed there over the past few decades, consisting of restaurants, cafes and retail stores for daily needs. The side streets in particular are affected by gentrification due to the influx of students, creative people and young families .
The Schillerpromenade forms the center of the so-called Schillerkiez. The quarter was created around 1900 as a “residential quarter for higher earners”. After Neukölln - like most West Berlin districts near the inner-city wall strip - had lost a lot of its popularity, the better-off population also moved in the Schillerkiez. This process was intensified by the increasing aircraft noise from the adjacent Tempelhof Airport .
Since the airport was closed, the Schillerkiez has been enjoying increasing popularity again. This led to an increase in rents and, as a result, to gentrification here as well.

Squares and neighborhoods
A specialty in the north of Neukölln is Richardplatz with the surrounding Alt Rixdorf district between Sonnenallee and Karl-Marx-Straße. The square is the nucleus of the former village from which Neukölln once emerged. The surrounding streets thus represent the old town of the district. During the Second World War, the district remained unscathed and was then largely ignored by the town planners, so that the village character was retained. The annual Christmas market on the square is particularly popular . Other noteworthy places are:
- Alfred-Scholz-Platz (formerly: Platz der Stadt Hof )
- Rudower spider
- Köllnische Heide with high-deck settlement
Rural development (1300-1920)
Neukölln was called Richardsdorp when it was first mentioned in a document in 1360 , later Ricksdorf (Rieksdorf) and finally Rixdorf . The center was on Richardplatz . The village initially belonged to the Order of St. John , who took over the place from the Knights Templar who were based in Tempelhof . For this reason, the coat of arms of the district bears the Johanniterkreuz .
In 1737, Friedrich Wilhelm I allowed the settlement of Bohemian exiles in Rieksdorf, who were expelled because of their Protestant belief . These supporters of the Moravian Brethren built their own church and settled in a separate area away from the village green , along today's Richardstrasse , which in 1797 received its own administration as Böhmisch-Rixdorf .
When the two independent communities were reunified in 1874, Rixdorf had 8,000 inhabitants. From 1899, Rixdorf, until then part of the Teltow district as the largest village in Prussia , formed its own urban district, the population of which grew from 80,000 at first to over 237,000 in 1910. The place was renamed from Rixdorf to Neukölln in 1912. The reason for the renaming by the authorities was the negative overall impression of the place at the time : Rixdorf was considered a stronghold of "bad morals".
The village of Britz was first mentioned in a document in 1305. At the end of the 19th century, urbanization spread from the northern neighboring town of Rixdorf to Britz, which increased the population to more than 13,000 by 1920.
The street village of Rudow was first mentioned in 1373 and largely retained its village character until 1920.
Neukölln as a Berlin district (since 1920)
On October 1, 1920, the city of Neukölln was incorporated into Greater Berlin . Together with the communities of Britz, Buckow and Rudow, Neukölln was named after the 14th administrative district. At the end of the 20th century, the events surrounding the renaming of Rixdorf have been forgotten. Instead, there are individual efforts to rename the district of Neukölln in Rixdorf, on the one hand to separate it from the larger Neukölln district, on the other hand because of the greater conciseness of the old historical name.
From 1945 to 1990 the Neukölln district was part of the American sector of Berlin. In 1987, the district was awarded the European Prize for its outstanding efforts to European integration idea excellent. On September 23, 2008 the district received the title Place of Diversity awarded by the federal government .
On December 31, 2019, the Neukölln district had 329,917 inhabitants on an area of 44.9 square kilometers. As a result, the population density on the reporting date was 7,343 inhabitants per square kilometer. On December 31, 2016, the proportion of foreigners was 24.4%, while the proportion of the population with a migration background was 43.9% (only the Mitte district had a higher proportion of residents with a migration background at 50.8%).
In November 2019 the unemployment rate in Neuköln was 11.6% and was thus the highest value of all Berlin districts (the Berlin average was 7.6 percent). As of December 31, 2016, the median age of the population was 41.3 years.

Parts of Neukölln have been designated by the Berlin Senate since 1999 as areas with special development needs. Of the 17 areas of this type in all of Berlin in 2001, a total of nine were in Neukölln: Reuterplatz , Rollbergsiedlung , High-Deck-Siedlung , Schillerpromenade , Richardplatz Süd, Gropiusstadt / Lipschitzallee, Flughafenstrasse, Dammwegiedlung / Weiße Siedlung and Körnerpark. A quarter management system was set up here for the integrative development of the living environment. In 2016, around 6.11 million euros were spent on managing the districts.
The increased crime rate in these areas is striking. The judge Kirsten Heisig drew attention to the problems in Neukölln in her book The End of Patience: Consistent Against Young Violent Offenders in 2010. The integration officer of the House of Representatives added that the neighborhoods are not only hot spots because of a high proportion of migrants , but also because of major social problems. These could be precisely identified: high unemployment, poor education, an above-average number of young people who dropped out of school.
The successful integration instrument, district mothers in Neukölln , has existed since 2004 and is now also being used in the Brunnenviertel in the Wedding district ( Mitte district ). The project is supported by the cooperation agreement with the Neukölln District Office, the Neukölln JobCenter and the Diakonisches Werk Neukölln-Oberspree e. V. Berlin received the Metropolis Award 2008 for this.
On the other hand, a process of gentrification (district upgrading) began in the north of Neukölln around 2007 . The district, also known as Kreuzkölln , has been an attractive residential area since 2012, offering a variety of studios and gastronomic offers. In the meantime, an area has developed from a social hotspot that has a higher mix of residents from different social classes. The moving part of the population consists primarily of artists , students, the young bourgeoisie and hipsters.
The school entrance examinations carried out in the district in 2010 led to the following results: Every sixth child in Neukölln is overweight , every fifth child has carious teeth and grows up in a household that smokes . Two thirds of them are noticeable in their development. A quarter of the girls and boys only incompletely attended the ongoing preventive care examinations when they started school. In 2010, Neukölln was the Berlin district with the greatest number of language problems and the least knowledge of German .
In 2010, the district launched a municipal integrated strategy for health promotion, the Neukölln Prevention Chain. By networking the existing institutions and offers from youth welfare, education and health, gaps in the health development of children are to be closed. The situation has been improving since the 2016 health report.
Neukölln has the highest infant mortality rate of all Berlin districts. Out of 1000 newborns (from mothers registered in Neukölln), an average of 5.3 do not survive the first year of life; in the whole of Berlin this value is 3.1. Neukölln's health councilor Falko Liecke ( CDU ) cites poverty, poor education and an unhealthy lifestyle during pregnancy as reasons for the phenomenon. Rainer Rossi, chief physician of the pediatric intensive care unit at Vivantes Klinikum Neukölln , cites social and cultural differences as the reason. Accordingly, offers for prevention and care are often not taken advantage of. Problems during pregnancy were therefore noticed too late.

coat of arms
The current coat of arms goes back to the royal decree of the municipality of May 29, 1903. It was awarded on April 12, 1956 by the Berlin Senate .
Blazon : a half-split and divided shield, in the first, black field a silver communion chalice , in the second, silver field a golden-armored red eagle covered with golden clover stems on the wings and in the third, red field a silver eight-pointed cross. A red three-tower wall crown rests on the shield , the central tower of which is covered with a small Berlin coat of arms .
Justification of the coat of arms: The coat of arms of the Neukölln district was adopted from the city of Neukölln, which gave the district its name . The Johanniterkreuz refers to the establishment by the Order of St. John , the Brandenburg red eagle refers to the founding lords of the Mark Brandenburg , and the Hussite goblet symbolizes the Bohemian colonists. The crown of the wall was added to the coat of arms on January 1, 2001 as part of the district reform as a connecting element of all Berlin districts .
The Neukölln district maintains the following city partnerships :
