Hertha Zehlendorf

This traditional club was founded back in 1903, and it has remained the favorite of Berlin's Zehlendorf district. The original name was Turn und FC Germannia 1903 Zehlendorf, and was renamed to Hertha in 1906. It took it's current name in 1949.

Although a respectable amateur club with a competitive team, Zehlendorf's main claim to fame is that it is one of the largest soccer clubs in all Germany, based on it's highly successful youth programs. The highpoint of success was probably the late 1960s, when they twice won the 2nd level Regionalliga Berlin, and subsequently participated in promotion playoffs to the Bundesliga.

In more recent times, after a short stint in the Regionalliga Nordost, Zenhlendorf is back to regional Berlin soccer.
