Halensee was the site of the German shooting championship in 1921. On 26 September, one Jannich won the competition firing an Ortgies semi-automatic pistol.[1]

GeographyEdit

The locality, the smallest of the Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf district, is situated in its centre and borders with Charlottenburg, Wilmersdorf, Schmargendorf, Grunewald and Westend.

It is bounded by the Bundesautobahn 100 (Stadtring) in the west and the Cicerostraße, a branch-off of the Kurfürstendamm in the east. The locality is named after the small Halensee lake [de], which however is part of the neighbouring Grunewald locality.
