Döberitz is situated at an elevation of 39 m about 2 km west of Dallgow in the Havelland district west of Berlin in Germany's state of Brandenburg. Döberitz is a district of the municipality of Dallgow-Döberitz.
Döberitz (Doberitz) was first mentioned in 1375, the village of Gapel, which is part of Döberitz, is even 250 years older as it was mentioned already in 1126 (as Gople ). The whole village of Döberitz was destroyed by a large fire in 1700 and had to be rebuilt completely thereafter. A small railway station had been built at Dallgow in 1871; the journey on the "Lehrter Bahn" (Berlin Lehrter Bahnhof – Dallgow – Rathenow – Groß-Wuddicke) to Berlin then took 57 minutes. In 1898 the station was renamed "Dallgow-Döberitz". The new, completely modernized railroad "Brandenburgische Städtebahn" (Treuenbriezen – Belzig – Brandenburg – Dallgow-Döberitz – Rathenow – Friedrichsdorf – Neustadt/Dosse) was opened in 1904. By the late 1930s the journey time to Berlin was reduced to about 13 minutes with regular trains running every 20 minutes. In 1928 Gapel was incorporated into Döberitz. The municipality of Dallgow-Döberitz was formed in 1964. Since 1997 Dallgow-Döberitz has the status of "amtsfreie Gemeinde", which means that the municipality is independent of an "Amt", a political subdivision in the state of Brandenburg and the common seat of the administration for several municipalities.
