""About this sound Nikolassee  is a "locality (Ortsteil) of "Berlin in the borough of (Bezirk) of "Steglitz-Zehlendorf, named after the small Nikolassee lake.[1] Located in the affluent Southwest of the city, the area comprises parts of the "Schlachtensee neighbourhood and the eastern shore of the "Großer Wannsee lake with the large "Strandbad Wannsee lido,[2] as well as the islets of "Schwanenwerder and Lindwerder.[3]



Nikolassee is located on the "Bundesstraße 1 road from the Berlin city centre to "Potsdam, south of the extended "Grunewald forest. The river "Havel separates it from "Kladow and "Gatow in the "Spandau brorugh. Other localities bordering with Nikolassee are "Wannsee, "Zehlendorf and "Grunewald (this one in "Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf district [4]). Its southern neighbour "Kleinmachnow is a municipality in the "Potsdam-Mittelmark district of "Brandenburg. The residential areas of Nikolassee and Grunewald are separated by the Grunewald forest.


Villenkolonie Nikolassee, 1911 map

Once part of the "Düppel manor, from 1901 onwards the area was developed as a mansion colony (Villenkolonie Nikolassee). One year later, the settlement received connection to the "Berlin-Blankenheim and "Wannsee Railway lines with the opening of "Berlin-Nikolassee station.[5]

Originally an independent "Brandenburg municipality, Nikolassee was incorporated into Berlin with the "Greater Berlin Act of 1920. Part of "West Berlin during the ""Cold War", its southern border with the municipality of "Kleinmachnow, at the same time the border between the American Sector and what was to be the "East Germany, was fortified by the "Berlin Wall between 1961 and 1989. Located on the present "A 115 motorway was the US "Checkpoint Bravo (Drewitz-Dreilinden), built in 1969.[6]


Nikolassee is served by the "S-Bahn lines "S1, "S5 [7] and "S7, at the "homonymous station. The locality is also crossed by the motorway "A 115 (the former "AVUS, exit "Spanischer Allee"), and by the federal highway "B1.
