Berlin's 2001 administrative reform


Berlin's 2001 administrative reform


Berlin is subdivided into 12 boroughs ("Bezirke" in German), which are administrative units with political rights comparable to incorporated communities in the rest of Germany (although they are not separate legal entities from the city).
