Berlin Adlershof: Facts and Figures
The Berlin Adlershof Science City is one of the most successful high-technology sites in Germany and Berlin’s largest media location – embedded in an integrated urban planning concept. It is home to 1,187 companies and scientific institutions with 24,500 employees on an area of 4.6 km². In addition, there are about 6,650 students and around 1,000 trainees.
The 532 companies and 10 non-university research institutes in the Science and Technology Park at the heart of the Adlershof Science City focus on:
- Photonics and Optics,
- Renewable Energies and Photovoltaics,
- Microsystems and Materials,
- IT and Media,
- Biotechnology and Environment.
Moreover, there are six scientific institutes of the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (Chemistry, Geography, Computer Sciences, Mathematics, Physics, and Psychology).
In the direct vicinity, an ensemble of meanwhile 444 commercial enterprises, shops, hotels and restaurants has been created in addition to the Media City with its 195 companies. Here, as well as on the approximately 45 hectare area of the Schöneweide marshalling yard ("Gleislinse"), which was closed in 1998, the Science and Technology Park has ideal space for further growth.
Adlershof is not just a place of work. Single-family homes, rented and owner-occupied apartments, townhouses and student apartments have been built.
