The cityscape Reinickendorf is multi-faceted.

Every third resident of Reinickendorf is living in these old buildings, against it the area in Lübars has only 5.000 residents.
In settlement Weiße Stadt (built 1929 -1931) and Märkisches Viertel (built 1963-1973) live more than 30.000 people. The remaining parts are basically single furnished family houses.
In Reinickendorf there is also one of the three passenger airports of Berlin called Airport Berlin-Tegel “Otto Lilienthal”. Many of the airlines and passengers call this airport their favourite airport of Berlin.
The waterside of Havel river and area around Lake Tegel are used to enhance tourism. Thus the Greenwichpromenade, a popular destination, and Reinickendorf`´s tourism centre are developed. Many shipping companies offer round trips to Oranienburg, Spandau, Wannsee or to Potsdam and Werder. Furthermore the promenade close to public transport invites for walks or longer hikes.
In addition Reinickendorf is also well-known for companies like Motorola, MAN, Borsig or Oracle and was several times certificated by Chamber of Industry and Commerce as the business-gentlest district. The district also enhances middle-class companies and the unemployment rate is with its 14% one of the lowest in Berlin. Furnished living in a working district: Reinickendorf.
