First mentioned in 1200, it was an autonomous municipality merged into Berlin in 1920 with the "Greater Berlin Act". During the Cold War, as part of West Berlin bordering East Germany, it was crossed by the Berlin Wall from 1961 to 1989 at its border with the municipality of Glienicke/Nordbahn.
It is situated in the north of the city, bordering the Brandenburger municipality of Glienicke/Nordbahn (Oberhavel district). It borders the Berliner localities of Frohnau, Tegel, Waidmannslust and Lübars. It also borders the forest of Tegel and part of its territory is included in Barnim Nature Park.
