History

The settlement was first mentioned in a 1265 deed issued by Margrave Otto III of Brandenburg. It received its name from an eponymous plateau, a moraine of the last glacial period. Teltow was formerly known for the Teltower Rübchen (Brassica rapa ssp. rapa f. teltowiensis), a special type of turnip quite popular in the 18th and 19th century. The main sight of the town is the Protestant St Andrew's fieldstone church of the 12th century rebuilt in 1812 according to plans by Karl Friedrich Schinkel. It was depicted by Lyonel Feininger in his 1918 painting Teltow II.

Teltow shared its borders with the former West Berlin, and so during the period 1961-1990 it was separed from it by the Berlin Wallmarker.

The present municipality was established in 1994 by the merger of Teltow and the former village of Ruhlsdorf. It has seen a major increase of population since the fall of the Berlin Wall and German reunification. In 2005, German painter Markus Lüpertz installed his studio of sculpture at Teltow.
