the request leading to the definition of the new local parts describe the problem of the demarcation of the local parts very concisely: Wilmersdorf became from the city German Wilmersdorf,the village Schmargendorf, the colony Green forest and a part of the forest Green forest in an educated manner. These are to today local parts of the district in its Gemarkungsgrenzen at that time (exception Eichkamp the 1937 were umgemeindet from Wilmersdorf to Charlottenburg). The inhabitants identify themselves with their local parts, sometimes however shiftthe borders in the heads of the adjacents resident. Some one in Wilmerdorf lives, means Schmargendorfer to be, and not few Schmargendorfer mean to live in Green forest.

After the official district map of Charlottenburg Wilmersdorf the borders of the local part can be described as follows: In the northeast those form Urban motorway and the ring course the border to the local parts resounding lake and Wilmersdorf. In the southeast the demarcation takes place after Wilmersdorf via the Mecklenburgian road and the Zoppoter road. In the south the Lentzealle and the Pücklerstrasse form the border to Dahlem.
