History of Pankow


Located in the north-east of Berlin, the bourgeois district borders on the districts of Lichtenberg, Friedrichshain, Kreuzberg, Mitte and Reinickendorf and is at the same time the city border to the counties of Oberhavel and Barnim in the neighbouring State of Brandenburg. Pankow was considered privileged in GDR times; the district was the preferred residential area of high-ranking members of the GDR government. The embassy quarter was also established here. The political greats from GDR times are no longer to be found in the former renowned district and the big embassies moved their headquarters to or near the government quarter. Smaller, less wealthy nations, however, still have their representation here.
