Districts and Neighbourhoods

Berlin is divided into twelve boroughs (Bezirke), each with its own mayor and council. Each borough consists of a number of neighbourhoods (Stadtteile), which have no administrative function but which residents can identify more easily with.

Note: until 2001 Berlin had 23 boroughs, which have been merged into the current twelve to reduce adminstation costs.

The boroughs are, in alphabetical order:

Map

The map below shows Berlin's current boroughs (Bezirke), overlaid over the traditional boroughs:

Berlin: District Map

The current districts are marked with green borders and names in black. Where a current district has been merged from several older districts and has changed its name the old borders and names are shown in red. For example, the current borough of Mitte is formed out of the old boroughs of Mitte, Wedding and Tiergarten. In the case of boroughs which have joined and retained both old names, e.g. Treptow-Köpenick, the names appear above the respective old borough.
