Schoneberg is a gentrified portion of West Berlin known mostly for its excellent gay-friendly scene and beautiful neighbourhoods like affluent Bayerisches Viertel and the bohemian and diverse Rote Insel, famous as the birthplace of actress Marlene Dietrich. Sightseers usually stop by the Rathaus Schoneberg, an early 20th century building which serves as the City Hall and houses a special holocaust exhibit titled, “Wir waren Nachbarn”. This borough offers many international restaurants including Indian, Thai, Greek and Persian establishments on Akazienst, Hauptstrasse, and Goltzstrasse Streets. Whilst there are few nightclubs here, a quick metro ride to Charlottenburg will fulfill that need.
- Visit several Cold War-era memorials in Schoneberg like the Freedom Bell, which was presented to West Berlin by the United States after reunification.
- Admire the stately historic buildings of Schoneberg like the elegant Goya nightclub and the collection of older homes along Viktoria Luise Platz.
- Shop for eclectic goodies in the Winterfeldmarkt on Wednesdays and Saturdays, or browse the fashionable shops and gourmet eateries at KaDeWe, the most popular department store in Berlin and the largest of its kind on continental Europe.
Schoneberg is fifteen kilometres from the Tegel International Airport, and there are several buses and taxis that provide ground transportation. You can also travel to Berlin from just about anywhere in Europe via coach bus or rail. There are overnight trains from major cities like Paris, Vienna or Amsterdam. You can drive into the city using the major autobahn network, but traffic is very congested in the centre. Schoneberg is well-served by the S-bahn commuter rail system and the U-bahn subway Line 4, and the town centre is very pedestrian and bike-friendly.
