Berlin Adlershof: Facts and figures
Berlin Adlershof is Germany’s largest and most successful science and technology park as well as Berlin’s largest media location – embedded in an overall urban development concept. Spanning an area of 4.61km², the park is home to 1,270 companies and 17 scientific institutions with 28,000 employees. Adding to this are 6,600 students and about 950 apprentices.
- photonics and optics,
- photovoltaics and renewable energies,
- microsystems and materials,
- information technology (IT) and media,
- biotechnology and the environment.
Adding to this are the institutes of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (chemistry, geography, computer science, mathematics, physics, and psychology).
In addition to Media City with its 210 companies, an ensemble of now 480 local businesses, shops, hotels and restaurants has been developed. The Science and Technology Park, as well as the 45-ha area of the former rail yard in Schöneweide (“Gleislinse”), have additional lots at its disposal to provide companies with ideal conditions for growth.
Adlershof is not just a place for work but has also developed into a vibrant place to live. Next to a local service infrastructure (daycare centres, doctors, etc.), retail, and gastronomy, the importance of Adlershof as a place to live has been growing. More and more single family homes, condominiums, rental apartments, townhouses, and managed apartments are being built. In late 2022, about 6,000 people lived in the Adlershof development area. More housing will be added over the next few years.
