Hohen Neuendorf (German pronunciation: [ˈhoːən ˈnɔɪ̯ənˌdɔʁf] ( listen )) is a town in the Oberhavel district, in Brandenburg, Germany. It is located north west of Berlin.
Hohen Neuendorf is situated upon the Havel river (built on the Oder-Havel Canal) and is bordered by the Berlin areas Frohnau and Heiligensee to the south, Mühlenbecker Land to the east, Birkenwerder and Oranienburg to the north, and Hennigsdorf and Velten to the west.

Since the suburban move of Berlin which ended in the late 19th century, allowed by the development of the railway, Hohen Neuendorf was a small town with few residents.
The creation of a train station in Hohen Neuendorf on the North Train from Berlin in the last quarter of the 19th century, thanks to the larger, richer nearby village of Stolpe, led to a quick development of Hohen Neuendorf paralleled to that occurring in Berlin. With the rising role of Hohen Neuendorf as a commuter village across from Stolpe (which stayed largely agricultural in nature), it was finally with the (mis)placement of the train stop that emphasis on the settlement of Hohen Neuendorf ensued. The new Hohen Neuendorf station today is frequented by the users of Berlin's S-Bahn (rapid railway), while the old station's building has now been changed into a hotel.
The municipality shared its borders with the former West Berlin, and so during 1961-1990 it was separated from it by the Berlin Wall. Between 1 January 1988 and 30 June 1990 Hohen Neuendorf's component village of Stolpe served as East German border crossing for cars travelling between West Berlin and the East German Democratic Republic) or the West German Federal Republic of Germany. The traffic was subject to the Interzonal traffic regulations, which followed the special regulations of the Transit Agreement (1972) for traffic between West Germany and West Berlin. After 9 November 1989 eastern controls were gradually eased into spot checks and finally abolished on 30 June 1990, the day the Monetary, Economic and Social Union between the GDR and the FRGwas introduced.
