Steglitz was first a small village. There was a man whose name was Carstenn. He wanted to sell land. As nobody wanted to buy it he built the casern and the stations Lichterfeld East and West. Once Siemens came along and invented the first electric tramway in the world. What's more, companies like for example Telefunke, IBM (computers), BAM (Bundesanstalt für Materialprüfung) set up in Steglitz. Furthermore, the first radio and television were built in Steglitz. You can see all that in the Heimatsmuseum.
