The Treptow district [ ˈtreːptoː ] is a former administrative district of Berlin . It was founded on October 1st, 1920 as part of the Greater Berlin Act . On January 1, 2001, it was merged with the neighboring Köpenick district to form the new Treptow-Köpenick district of Berlin.
The district Treptow was divided into several districts:
- Baumschulenweg (since 1945), from parts of the Alt-Treptow area
- Oberschöneweide (1920–1938), then to the Köpenick district
- Wuhlheide (1920–1938), then to the Köpenick district
- Bohnsdorf (since 1938), from the Köpenick district
- Plänterwald (since 1997), from parts of Alt-Treptow and Baumschulenweg
The Treptow district emerged along the Görlitzer Bahn , which ran lengthways through the former district. This railway line began on former Görlitzer station at the north end of the district Alt-Treptow and led parallel to the streets magistrale the eagle stand by King Wusterhausen . The former Treptow district stretched as an elongated area from downtown Berlin to the city limits.
Industrial areas developed on both sides of the Görlitzer Bahn , and urban districts of Berlin grew out of the villages and were incorporated into the city in 1920. From the beginning of the settlement in Alt-Treptow , the settlement areas alternate left / right on the railway line / road, Plänterwald (east), Baumschulenweg (west), Niederschöneweide (east), Johannisthal (west), Adlershof (east), Altglienicke (west), then Grünau (east, to the Köpenick district ) and Bohnsdorf (west). Even beyond the city limits of Berlin, the continuous settlement continues along the Görlitzer Bahn, followed by Eichwalde , Zeuthen , Wildau (each east) to the settlement area of Königs Wusterhausen .
However, the last three villages are already in the countryside, each in the east the Zeuthener See , in the west the Görlitzer Bahn with the Kiebitzer fields and today 's Berlin-Schönefeld airport . These localities without industrial areas were therefore not taken into account during the incorporation in 1920, and were administered via Königs Wusterhausen in Brandenburg .
With the Berlin territorial reform , effective April 1, 1938, the district gave the districts of Oberschöneweide and Wuhlheide to the district of Köpenick. At the same time, Bohnsdorf came from the Köpenick district to the Treptow district. From the Neukölln district in the Späthsfelde area, the areas northeast of the Teltow Canal fell to the Treptow district. The population of the district decreased by 20,024 due to the border changes and the area of the district decreased by 45 hectares .
After the end of the Second World War , the Treptow district became part of the Soviet Sector of Berlin and thus belonged to East Berlin until 1990 . From 1961 to 1990, the Berlin Wall ran along the border with its western neighboring districts of Kreuzberg and Neukölln .
Due to the district reform in 2001, the Treptow district became part of the new Treptow-Köpenick district.
