Explore Berlin Schoneberg

South of the city, part of Berlin, yet proud of its independence, well-preserved Schoneberg has been the unofficial hub for Berlin's gay community and the centre of its colourful cabaret culture since the 1920s; if you want a taste of Berlin's famous nightlife, this is where to come to. Schoneberg was home to some of the city's most famous residents of the last century, including screen goddess Marlene Dietrich and Christopher Isherwood, whose witty chronicles were the inspiration for the film "Cabaret". The Rathaus in Schoneberg is also famous as the site where John F Kennedy made his historic "Ich bin ein Berliner" speech.

Experience Berlin Schoneberg like a local

To fit in with the ambience of Schoneberg, fill your days by making new friends in the cafes, followed by dancing the night away after the clubs open - central Schoneberg is crowded from midday to well past midnight. By day, stroll down the 19th Century streets, some of the most beautiful in Berlin and follow the locals to the cafes centred around Winterfeldtplatz - they are always busy, but you should be able to squeeze in and find a seat. The coffees and snacks are excellent and relatively inexpensive - these are fantastic places to park up and watch the world go by. You can take one of the regular trains into central Berlin (it's pretty quick to get to the Brandenberg Gate and other famous places) to tick off the must-see sights, then do what Schoneberg residents do and preserve your energy for the evening. Nollendorfplatz and Motzstrasse are where the crowds head to, the restaurants and clubs stay open (and lively) into the early hours - so do get your dancing shoes on.
