Wansdorf is located northwest of Berlin on the edge of the Krämer Forest. The population is around 800.
The "Dorf des Wan", an anger village at the foot of the Glien, was first mentioned in 1313. Up until a hundred years ago, almost all the houses were directly on the street, only then were a few small side streets added.
The center of the tranquil village is the castle, built around the turn of the century. Opposite is the small baroque church from the 18th century, which has been partially renovated in recent years. The church is to get a nicer look in the next few years and shine in new splendor by the 700th anniversary in 2013. Two manor houses complete the historical village ensemble.
Not far from the district are the “Am Rosengarten” industrial park and the Wansdorf sewage treatment plant.
In the course of the village renewal, road construction work was carried out in particular.
A beautiful cycle path that is particularly popular in the warmer months of the year runs through Wansdorf, which connects all the districts with one another.
Wansdorf was incorporated into the new community Schönwalde-Glien on October 26, 2003 .
