The perfect mix


Contrast & harmony

Tempelhof-Schöneberg is a perfect area of compromise. Schöneberg has enough classy cafes, restaurants and cultural attractions to keep anyone happy, while remaining more easy-going and accessible than neighbouring Charlottenburg. Tempelhof is characterised by attractive old buildings, open spaces, and ease of access to both the city centre and the outer boroughs, yet remains relatively cheap and unexplored. The further south you travel, the more suburban and even rural the district becomes, perfect for families and those seeking a quieter life.

Culture & Lifestyle
Though it may be slightly removed from the glitz and glamour of its 1920s heyday, when Marlene Dietrich and Christopher Isherwood frequented the bars and shows (or even when David Bowie and Iggy Pop enjoyed its decadent nightspots), Schöneberg still has a lot to offer. Excellent shopping, vibrant nightlife and a flourishing gay scene all add to the charm of the neighbourhood.
The rest of the district is quieter and more residential, though still with a certain elegant allure. Tempelhof’s proximity to both Kreuzberg and Neukölln has led to a number of hip cafes and bars opening here as well.
Tempelhof owes its name to the former airfield that dominates the neighbourhood, and which is now Berlin’s largest park. A haven for skaters, kite-flyers, picnickers and those who just want to lie in the sun, the park is a huge attraction for locals. Slightly west of here lies the Südgelände nature park, an impressive collection of flora and fauna housed in an old trainyard.
If you prefer your nature in slightly more elegant surroundings, the Ceciliengärten in Schöneberg is a stunning housing project, dating from the 1920s, with a beautiful central garden flanked by Japanese cherry trees and the Art Nouveau façades of the buildings.
Commercial retail in the area is dominated by KaDeWe, the fascinatingly storied and significant department store.
Though Schöneberg may be known primarily for commercial retail, the district actually features a number of large companies. GE, Procter & Gamble and IBM all have offices and commercial facilities here. There are also several industrial hubs, supporting a number of companies of varying size. For example, the Mercedes-Benz plant in Tempelhof is their oldest manufacturing site, founded in 1902.
