Historical Maps of Berlin

Berlin in the Twentieth Century underwent profound and dramatic changes. It was a city divided and then reunited. You can track many of these changes in HistoMap Berlin's collection of Twentieth Century historical maps of Berlin.

To view the available vintage maps for an area you first need to click on a location on the map. The available maps for that location will then be shown in the map side-bar. To view a map you simply need to select it in the side-bar and click the 'add' button'.

If you select the 'More Layers' tab you can view the 1910 Straube-Plan of the city. The 'More Layers' tab also includes a 'Berlin Wall' option, which allows you to overlay a map of the Berlin Wall on top of any of the other vintage maps.
