Blankenfelde was founded at the Bernauer Heerstraße one of the early trade routes between Spandau and Bernau. In the Late Middle Age a branch of the far trade route between Berlin and Prenzlau crossed the village of Blankenfelde and brought about high population grow. A lot of farmers got a certain wealth and became land owners.
Still today Blankenfelde is largely surrounded by rural area. It rates to be one of the less populated areas in Berlin.
