Adlershof - Adlershof - Adlershof

Berlin Adlershof. Science at Work.

Discover the myth of Adlershof: founded in 1754, birthplace of German aviation, and site for research, film and television. Today the area has around 17,000 inhabitants, most located in the heart of the "old village". The Technology Park is close to the former airfield and new park.

The Berlin Adlershof Science City is one of the most successful high-technology locations in Germany - and Berlin’s largest media site. Ten Non-University Research Institutes, six Natural Sciences Departments of Humboldt University, some 1,100 businesses and a rich history await you at Berlin-Brandenburg’s top Science, Business and Media hub.
