More about Schöneberg
Your apartment in Schöneberg: An investment at an attractive price
Hildegard Knef, Marlene Dietrich, Albert Einstein, Gottfried Benn, Marcel Reich-Ranicki, Helmut Newton, Billy Wilder and Iggy Pop – living in Schöneberg means that you are never far from a building that was once home to someone famous. The list of famous artists and cultural phenomena is a long one and is a constant reminder of the exciting, and often turbulent, history of the district. Situated in Berlin's south, in close proximity to the downtown City West region, Schöneberg was once home to a vibrant creative, intellectual and left wing scene. Today, it is an area with many facets. In the Bayerischen Viertel (Bavarian Quarter), one row of magnificent buildings follows another, and the luxurious Tauentzienstraße is home to both exclusive shops and high-quality living space. These two parts of Schöneberg are amongst the most desirable residential areas in the whole of Berlin.
History comes alive in Schöneberg
Reminders of Berlin's history can be found on every street corner - and this is especially true in Schöneberg. Setting up home in Schöneberg automatically means submerging yourself in the multi-faceted history of the city. Here is what has come to be known as the Red Island, a section of Schöneberg encircled by the tracks of the city's circle line, Wannsee and Anhalter lines. The residents of the Red Island, traditionally left leaning, led the opposition against National Socialism in the 1930s and 1940s. The mythology is still kept alive today, thanks to regular political events and celebrations. This area is also home to the Gasometer, one of Berlin's most recognizable industrial landmarks.
Nollendorfplatz lies to the north west of the Red Island. Along with the surrounding streets, this square has long been the center of Berlin's gay and lesbian scene. Berlin's biggest LGBT street festival takes place here each year and draws crowds from all over the world. The neighborhood also became the backdrop for countless books, including Eich Kästner's Emil and the Detectives. For fans of literature, an apartment in this area is a must. There are some less well-known places to discover and explore in Schöneberg, amongst them the garden memorial at Alboinplatz. The square is named after King Alboin, whose silhouette still rules over the square from the tower of an old factory. At the center of the square is a legendary lake, surrounded by meadows, birch trees, elder bushes and a huge sculpture of a bull.
