Founded by Bohemian weavers, Schöneberg has evolved into a colorful borough known for its strong LGBT community, open air markets and rugged beauty. Mixing different wealth classes and architecture styles, it’s also extremely to easy to reach by the U-Bahn that puts you right in the middle.
Schöneberg is one of the safest neighborhoods of Berlin with a vibrant gay nightlife that shouldn’t put you off: the options are endless with numbers of beautiful cafés, restaurants and bars. During the day, it’s pretty quiet and offers endless shopping experiences such as the KaDeWe mall. While you’re there, you might as well check out some of the typically Schönebergian sights such as the Memorial to Homosexual Holocaust Victims.
There’s also a very nice, renovated community swimming pool that you might want to experience after a long day. Relatively disparate in terms of prices, you can find luxurious areas that tend to be very expensive and contrast with low-income neighborhoods.
Although perhaps not as attractive at the first sight, Schöneberg has a lot to offer, if you give it a chance. The varied architecture, wide boulevards and enriching outdoor market experience will captivate you in no time.Show more
