Kleinmachnow is a municipality with more than 20,000 inhabitants in Potsdam-Mittelmark in Brandenburg. It is located southwest of the Berlin district of Steglitz-Zehlendorf and east of Potsdam. First mentioned in the Land Book of Charles IV. of 1375, the city played an important role on Bäkeübergang, secured the several medieval castles. The last of these castles are all non-preserved belonged to the Knights of Hake, whose family until the 20th century shaped the history. Replacement of Bäke by the Teltow Canal in 1906 gave the village the listed today Kleinmachnow lock. In the first half of the 20th century Kleinmachnow grew from rural Gutsdorf the suburban community of agglomeration Berlin. The construction of the Berlin Wall in 1961 Kleinmachnow was cut off from West Berlin and was thus - centrally within the GDR - in relative obscurity. Since German reunification in 1990 Kleinmachnow participates in the growth of the Berlin surrounding area.
