Berlin Schöneberg


The District Schöneberg

The name of the smallest Berlin district derives from the former farming village “Sconenberch”. Schöneberg is located directly at the inner city – just between the chic Wilmersdorf and the trendy neighbourhood Kreuzberg. It doesn't only seem to form the geographic middle of those districts. The inhabitants of Schöneberg are also quite multicultural, tolerant and joyous, but they have a quite extravagant life style,too. Schönebergers very much appreciate the solidarity in their neighbourhood and love their district. In Schöneberg you are never alone.


The KaDeWe (Kaufhaus des Westens – German for: Store of the West) in the Tauentzienstraße is a quite exclusive and also one of the most imposing stores on the European mainland. The Tauentzienstraße, further, is the highest frequented street of Berlin. About 8,000 passengers pass the extension of the famous Kurfürstendamm every day, where also the big stores “Nike Town” and Peek&Cloppenburg reside.

During a shopping trip, starting at the Nollendorfplatz over the Maaßenstraße, Golzstraße as well as the Akazienstraße until the Hauptstraße, one will find various smaller and independent fashion, household, culinary shops that really are worth seeing.

On the famous Winterfeldplatz – near the Nollendorfplatz – the probably most well-known weekly market of Berlin is located. Every weekend you can linger over the Winterfeld-Market and get everything among fresh grocery, such as fruits and vegetables, meat and bread, as well as clothes and flowers.

The Mr Dead & Mrs Free in the Bülowstraße is not exactly fitting for downright Electro enthusiasts, but absolutely popular throughout the Berlin music scene. The small shop already exists since 1983 and has its emphasis in the fields of Pop, Indie, Country, Alternative, as well as Blues, Jazz and Soul.


The nightlife of Schöneberg is less characterized by huge clubs that are famous in Berlin. For that the bordering districts in the inner city are famous and, due to the perfect location of Schöneberg, are well reachable within a few minutes. In Schöneberg, classy bars and pubs cater for a vital, but also solid nightlife. Especially the locations around the Winterfeldplatz are a favoured pull-factor for the Berlin bar and café scene.

At the Nollendorfplatz the Goya is located – a very modern location and perfectly suitable for partying. This highly exclusive club is open on Fridays and Saturdays and hosts diverse events. However, one should bear in mind that such an elegance and quality also lets the prices increase, which is why a cocktail happy hour or 2for1 specials are rather unusual.

Now, what happens behind the “Green Door” in the Winterfeldstraße? Find out yourself. You will have to ring the doorbell, because not everyone is allowed to get inside. Fancy clothes and a smile seem to be definite requirements. But the cocktails there are brilliant – the always well attended bar ranks among the best of the city and this is not for nothing. 

Along the Fuggerstraße the gay scene has developed. Equipped with many bars and cafés, it's the meeting point for old and young, not only for gays. The tolerance of Berlin really becomes apparent here.

Culture & Entertainment

The town-hall Schöneberg was the residence of the West Berlin House of Representatives after 1948 and John F. Kennedy stood exactly there, when he shouted “Ich bin ein Berliner.”. That is why the place in front of the building today is named John-F.-Kennedy-Square.  Besides, also West-Berlin has been governed here until the reunfication of Germany. And today every noon the liberty bells ring here.

A very famous cemetery is located in the Stubenrauchstraße. After her death, also the burial of the brilliant Marlene Dietrich took place there – just as she has been born 1901 in Schöneberg, she also found her eternal piece there in 1992.

Sport & Recreation

If you walk along the fountain and colonnade at the Victoria-Luise-Square  you will really feel how solid Schöneberg still is today. After the War, it stayed nearly undamaged and seems even more resplendent due to the Wilhelminian magnificent buildings and mansions.

A very beautiful place for recreation is located in the Bülowstraße. The oriental steam bath – Sultan Hamam – is probably the biggest Turkish Hamam within Germany. The Turkish cosmetic culture is practiced here on a very authentic and complete way and forms a sort of short-trip to Turkey through special wellness-offerings.

A real meeting point for inline skater – whether it be pros, beginners or speed skaters – is the Hans-Baluschek-Park in the south of Schöneberg. The quite slender green area possesses an approximately 1.5km long asphalted path, which is ideal for skating or cycling. Furthermore, there is a playground, sunbathing areas and wooden beds, picnic areas and also a street ball field. Through a bridge the about 7ha wide greed space quasi forms the entrance to the 18ha wide nature park Südgelände. Formerly it was an area for the railway system, whereas today it is mostly a protected landscape, where many plant and animal species are at home, which are rarely found in the urban land. As the bigger part of the area is protected, the predetermined paths mostly may not be left – also in order to not disturb birds that breed on the ground.

Those who want to swim are recommended to go to the indoor bath Schöneberg in the Hauptstraße. With a 25m long swimmer pool, a nonswimmer pool and a children’s pool, long and shorter slides, a whirlpool, a sole pool, a sauna area, solariums and a restaurant, it offers a very diversified range.

Eat & Drink

A wide range of cafés is located around the Winterfeldplatz and will make the choice quite difficult. Most of them are quite stylish and cosy and they also offer their guests the possibility to sit outside on cold days – supported by blankets and patio heaters. The small tables and many chairs don’t really make life easy for the waiters and waitresses, but provide for a quite cosy ambiance. The best is to travel to the subway station Nollendorfplatz and take a walk southwards. Brilliant bars and restaurants from different nationalities (Turkey, India, China, France, Italy...) lodge there tightly packed.

A quite cosy atmosphere is offered also by the Zoulou Bar in the Maaßenstraße. It seems quite unimposing from the outside, but the interior has a very comfortable flair and a friendly service. It is open during the daytime, as well as at night and, therefore, it's a popular meeting place for all kinds of people – business men, students, elderly, as well as the younger generation.

In great demand and well attended at every time of the day is the snack bar Dolce Pizza in the Maaßenstraße. Occasionally, the row of clients seems endless, but a good staying power definitely pays off with a €2 cheap, brilliant and freshly prepared pizza slice.

Local Transport

The renters of a vacation apartment in Berlin Schöneberg enjoy the benefits of an excellent connection to the rest of Berlin. The east-west-connection is formed by the subway lines U1, U2 and U7, as well as the circle lines S41 and S42. The subway lines U4 and the S-Bahn (German for: suburban railway) lines S1, S2 and S25 connect the north with the south of the city and also pass Schöneberg.
