About this picture

Hohen Neuendorf is a town in the Oberhavel district in the state of Brandenburg . The city, with over 26,000 inhabitants, is located on the Havel and borders directly on the Berlin districts of Frohnau and Heiligensee in the Reinickendorf district . Hohen Neuendorf has been one of the fastest growing places in Berlin's bacon belt since the 1990s . On March 28, 2019, the city ​​council decided that the city should in future be known as the “city of bees”.


Hohen Neuendorf stretches from the Havel (developed as the Oder-Havel Canal ) in the west ( Pinnow , Alt- Borgsdorf and Niederheide; see also Zehdenick-Spandauer Havelniederung ) to the foothills of the Niederen Barnim in the east ( Bergfelde district ). The city lies on the western border of the Barnim Nature Park - Bergfelde is in the Nature Park, Hohen Neuendorf, Borgsdorf and Stolpe are outside.

City structure

According to the main statute of the city, Hohen Neuendorf is divided into the following districts: and residential areas


From the beginning to industrialization

"II miles to Berlin", Prussian milestone (around 1836) on today's B 96

The first traces of settlement in the area of ​​today's Hohen Neuendorf can be traced back to the Bronze Age according to the list of archaeological monuments in Hohen Neuendorf . There were also settlements here in later phases.

The village of Hohen Neuendorf was first mentioned in 1349 as Nygendorf and later renamed Hohen Neuendorf to distinguish it from the village of Neuendorf located down the Havel . Until the suburbanization of Berlin at the end of the 19th century, encouraged by the creation of radial railway lines, Hohen Neuendorf was an insignificant small village .

A rapid development of the village began with the construction of the " Nordbahn ", the railway from Berlin to Neustrelitz , in the last quarter of the 19th century. The establishment of the “Stolpe” stop in 1877 - at the endeavors of the then more important neighboring village of the same name - subsequently led to the emergence of a small colony on today's southern edge of the city. A settlement also developed around the Hohen Neuendorf stop , which was set up at the same time . While Stolpe hardly changed in its agricultural character due to the transport links , Hohen Neuendorf developed into a commuter community . The colony grew both to the west (Stolper Straße) and parallel to the railway to the north (Berliner Straße) and there with the old village.

After the First World War

In 1919 the construction of the "Colonie am Wasserturm " began as a war- damaged settlement on behalf of the then rural community of Hohen Neuendorf. It was carried out by the state-owned Prussian Landgesellschaft Eigen Scholle Frankfurt / Oder . Later the place expanded to the east beyond the area of ​​the railway line. In the course of the route conversion for the operation of the S-Bahn , the two stops at Hohen Neuendorf and Stolpe were replaced by the new Hohen Neuendorf station in 1924.

With the formation of Greater Berlin in 1920, the Berlin urban area expanded in the north to Frohnau , and Hohen Neuendorf became a direct suburb of Berlin. Hohen Neuendorf bought Niederheide from the state forest in 1921 and in 1933 an area south of Stolper Strasse from the municipality of Stolpe . The planned settlement was only partially implemented. Most of the parcels off the main road remained undeveloped, especially in Niederheide.

On April 21, 1945, Polish and Soviet troops reached Hohen Neuendorf. In a brief exchange of fire, three buildings were destroyed at today's roundabout in the south of the city. That was the only destruction in the place during the Second World War.

After the Second World War

Walter Pott became the first elected mayor after the war .

In 1953 the Berlin outer ring was created . The route between the Schönfließ and Hennigsdorf Nord train stations runs through the middle of the old village of Hohen Neuendorf. Several houses had to be demolished for the construction. Hohen Neuendorf received a station on the outer ring with the Hohen Neuendorf West train station .

With the construction of the Berlin Wall on August 13, 1961, the road and rail connections to West Berlin bordering south were interrupted by the GDR . From November of the same year, the S-Bahn ran on a partially new route via Blankenburg to Berlin. The old road from the former Stolpe station to Bergfelde was interrupted by the new railway systems. To compensate for this, a paved road connection to Bergfelde was created via a railway bridge.

After the wall came down

The fall of the Berlin Wall on November 9, 1989 and the demolition of the border installations to Berlin made it possible to reopen the Berliner Straße ( B 96 ) to Frohnau on February 17, 1990. The direct S-Bahn connection Hohen Neuendorf - Frohnau was reopened on May 31, 1992 recorded .

On December 6, 1993, the neighboring communities Bergfelde and Borgsdorf merged with Hohen Neuendorf. In contrast to many municipalities in the Oberhavel district, local advisory boards were not introduced. The residents of Birkenwerder voted against a merger in a referendum. The municipality of Stolpe was incorporated into the city with effect from October 26, 2003.

In 1999 Hohen Neuendorf was granted city rights.

At the end of 2006 the action alliance “Northern Railway Communities with Courage” was founded. The non-partisan, open citizens' forum is committed to a strong civil society and lively local democracy in order to actively counter the rise of right-wing extremist ideas in the middle of society. Around 30 associations, parties, administrations, schools, churches and other institutions have so far joined the initiative. The municipalities of Mühlenbecker Land and Glienicke / Nordbahn have now joined the alliance originally founded in Hohen Neuendorf and Birkenwerder .

In May 2007, the Bernsteinsee (also known as Veltener Autobahnsee , which had previously belonged to Borgsdorf (Pinnow district) , as it was created in the 1970s through sand mining as part of the expansion of today's A24 autobahn ) was handed over to the city of Velten in exchange for meadowland .
