Hikers and walkers with an exploratory spirit make a good decision if they choose to rent a vacation apartment in Berlin Reinickendorf. However, the old and the new meet each other in a strong contrast. So the medieval air get lost between the old village chruch Reinickendorf and the modern flats - and all that in pulsating Berlin.
The biggest airport of the capital, Berlin-Tegel, is located in Reinickendorf. In 2008 14,467.921 passangers departed and arrived there. During the Berlin blockade through the soviet occupation the candy bombers started from this airport to provide the West Berlin inhabitants. That is why Europe's then longest airstrip with 2,4km was built in only three months. In 2011 this airport will also be shut down just like Tempelhof because of the big project of the Berlin Brandenburg International airport in Schönefeld.
The northern bank of the lake borders to the Schlosspark with the Humboldt-Castle which was built in 1558 and which was redesigned into a classicism castle in the 19th century. The Schlosspark which contains the family grave of The Humboldts is now open to the public.
