Akazienstraße lies between Grunewaldstraße and Hauptstraße in Schöneberg. It's a a small street with a cosy neighbourhood charm. This is not a place for shops offering international fashion labels or big department stores. Instead, you'll find many long-established shops and individual boutiques lining Akazienstraße. Wine shops, delicatessens, and a few esoteric stores like the Dharma book store and Ianna boutique fill the neighbourhood.
To start off the morning or for a coffee break, there are many cosy cafés such as Café Bilderbuch, Café Sur, and Lina Rothenberg on Belziger Straße. In summer, the legendary ice cream parlous vanille & marille draws in the crowds.
Also legendary is the Möwe im Felsenkeller, a traditional Berlin pub that time seems to have forgotten. As Akazienstraße hits Hauptstraße, there's another Berlin institution: Deko Behrendt with its huge selection of decorative items, costumes, wigs, and false teeth.
What's the best way to get to Akazienstraße?
Take the U7 to Eisenacher Straße. The other end of Akazienstraße at Kaiser-Wilhelm-Platz and Hauptstraße can be reached by Buses 106, 187, 204, M48, or M85. It's better to take public transport here since there are very few parking spaces.
