Black Forest - settlement

Waidmannslust is a district of the district Reinickendorf.


The district Waidmannslust located west of Luebars and is divided by the Waidmannsluster dam in two areas. While the northern and western part has a Hermsdorf similar to the adjacent villas and cottage -like architecture, the eastern part ( Rollberge settlement ) of high-rise buildings such as the nearby Märkischen district is marked.


Waidmannslust goes back to a villa colony, which was founded in 1875 acquired by the Rangers and innkeeper Ernst Bondick lands. The area got its name from a register kept by Bondick inn Waidmannslust.

In 1884 the colony received its own breakpoint at Berlin's northern runway, the present station Waidmannslust which is operated today by the S -Bahn lines S1 and S85. In the years 1908-1912, the route was highly placed on its present level, and the station building and the bridges over the Waidmannsluster dam date from this period, and are now a protected monument.

Since 1913, the Queen Louise Church is on the corner Bondick-/Hochjagdstraße (formerly Church Street ) is the most visible landmark of the district.

On 2 May 1929, the extension of the tram line along the Wittenauer Cyklopstraße was opened (now partly the Jean -Jaurès Street) until Waidmannslust station. Here reversed by the end of the Second World War the line 68
