A new map of Berlin arrived! Forget “Spandau”, forget “Reinickendorf”, do not worry if your spelling of “Schmargendorf” is correct – here is everything you need to know about Berlin´s new districts with a short glossary of names below.
Schwaben – traditionally quite affluent new Berliners with their roots deep in Swabia (more or less identical with the state Baden-Württemberg), often accused of forcing their culture and their habits onto (mostly) former East Berlin.
Naherholungsgebiet – local recreation area
Alter Osten / Westen – Old East / West
Berghain – c´mon, EVERYBODY knows;-)
