Tempelhof-Schöneberg: Proud of its diversity

From shoppers’ paradise to natural parkland, from tranquil neighbourhood to LGBT party – Tempelhof-Schöneberg is just as diverse as its residents!

On Saturdays, the neighbourhood is crowded. Locals and visitors stream from Nollendorfplatz subway station to Winterfeldtplatz for Berlin’s largest and oldest weekly market. Around 250 stalls offer everything from fruits and vegetables, flowers, cheese and household goods to deli-style Italian antipasti and spicy Turkish salami. The Saturday market and the smaller version on Wednesday are popular meeting points for the local alternative scene, respectable burghers, and trendsetters from other districts looking for something special. The entire quarter has always magically attracted old and new Berliners. After all, here modern city dwellers can find everything they want – a quiet yet urban environment with chic cafés and fun bars, restaurants and a unique blend of shops.

From Wittenbergplatz, Goltzstrasse leads to the south of Schöneberg. Here, you can find antique office furniture in Das alte Bureau, enjoy delicious homemade cakes at Café Sorgenfrei surrounded by antiques from the 1950s and 60s, and pick up the best travel tips in the Chatwin book store. And just three doors down, there’s a paradise for your more creative side. Hobbyshop Rüther is Berlin’s largest hobby shop with an unparalleled range from acrylic moulds to wax pearls – and even a kiln service to fire pottery! At the end of the street, at Kaiser-Wilhelm-Platz, the Kochhaus outlet has all that hobby gourmets need for a delicious homecooked meal.
