The boroughs of Berlin

Berlin is both a city and one of Germany's federal states. It is made up of several boroughs (Bezirke in German, also known as districts or administrative districts in English), each with its own borough government, though all boroughs are subject to Berlin’s city and state government.

Germany is a Federal Republic made up of 16 States, known in German as Länder (transliterated as Laender in English, singular Land). ...


Each borough is made up of several officially recognized localities (Ortsteile in German, sometimes called subdistricts in English). These localities typically have a historical identity as former independent cities, villages, or rural municipalities that were united in 1920 as part of Greater Berlin, the basis for the present-day city and state. The localities do not have their own governmental bodies, but are recognized by the city and the boroughs for planning and statistical purposes. Berliners often identify more with the locality where they live than with the borough that governs them. The localities are further subdivided into statistical tracts, which are mainly used for planning and statistical purposes. The statistical tracts correspond roughly but not exactly with neighbourhoods recognized by residents.


When Berlin was united in 1920, it was divided into 20 boroughs, typically named after its largest component locality, often a former city or municipality. By 2000, Berlin comprised 23 boroughs, as a couple of the original boroughs had been broken up. An administrative reform in 2001 merged many of Berlin’s existing boroughs to form the 12 boroughs that make up the city today. As of 2005, these 12 boroughs were made up of a total of 96 officially recognized localities, as listed below. Berlin is subdivided into 12 boroughs (Bezirke in German), which are administrative units with political rights comparable to incorporated communities in the rest of Germany (although they are not separate legal entities from the city). ...
