Berlin-Steglitz


Berlin-Steglitz
District

Berlin-Steglitz is located in the south-west of Berlin and, with its districts of Steglitz, Lichterfelde and Lankwitz, offers varied traditional middle-class idyll in connection with typical Berlin metropolitan flair. Quiet and green residential areas, a wide range of cultural and dining options and numerous shopping opportunities characterize the district. The Schlossstrasse, Berlin's second largest shopping street, is one of the busiest centers in the south of Berlin with its extensive shopping opportunities. Generous recreational and park facilities such as the Bäkepark or the Steglitzer Stadtpark inspire not only the scenic beauty, but also their opportunities for activity and relaxation. One of the most important sights of the district is the Botanical Garden, which, with an area of 43 hectares and over 20,000 plant species, is one of the largest botanical facilities in the world.

Bäkepark

Bäkepark

Bäkepark in Berlin-Steglitz is a park that is traversed by the former water-rich Bäke. That is why the green area with its lawns and old trees also bears this name. Some of the trees are extremely valuable because they have become rare. These include a white elm, two yew trees, a hornbeam, a sycamore maple and a plane tree. Children have fun in the multi-faceted adventure playground, which is why families like to go there on excursions. In addition, young and old come to the park during the annual Steglitz Festival. The immediate vicinity of the green area is also very attractive. Numerous sophisticated villas border the city park.

Bierpinsel

Bierpinsel

The Bierpinsel building is the landmark of Berlin-Steglitz and is part of the Joachim-Tiburtius-Brücke, which covers the Schloßstraße shopping street. Already during the construction period between 1972 and 1976, the building was given the bizarre name because its frame resembles a shaving brush. In addition, it was already known that a restaurant would be moving into the building. For the opening ceremony in 1976, free beer flowed into the 47 m high structure. The design for the three-storey house comes from the architects Ralf Schüler and Ursulina Schüler-Witte. The currently vacant building in the striking pop style has been a listed building since 2017.

There are around 140 shops and restaurants in the mall. They include major anchor businesses such as Esprit, Saturn, Hollister and Hallhuber.

Cineplex Titania

Cineplex Titania

The Cineplex Titania in Berlin-Steglitz is like a legend. The opening ceremony of the Filmpalast took place at the end of January 2028. The Titania Palace was known beyond its borders as a luxury cinema, the rooms of which not only the viewers but also big stars entered. Former film greats such as Carmen Boni, Hans Junkermann Otto Fee and Hans Brausewetter walked the red carpet. But not only that made the luxury cinema something special, but also its architecture. A building in the New Objectivity style has been built on a 2,700 m² property. It was unusually unadorned and bulky for the time, which the press celebrated. Today, in addition to various shops, the Titania Palace still houses a cinema. It is modern and has seven cinema halls of various sizes.

Das Schloss

Das Schloss

In March 2006, the “Das Schloss” shopping center opened in Berlin-Steglitz. Around 90 shops and restaurants are spread over a sales area of around 36,000 m². They include large and highly frequented chains such as Thalia, REWE, H&M and Media Markt. In order to provide an incentive to visit the mall in addition to the shops and restaurants, there are elaborate projections. Spectacular worlds of images such as the starry sky and sea waves shine on the ceiling and thus help to create an extraordinary shopping experience. The design for the reinforced concrete structure with sandstone facing comes from the architect Manfred Pechtold. After a construction period of around two years, the € 220 million building was finished.

Forum Steglitz

Forum Steglitz

The Forum Steglitz shopping center is on Schloßstraße in Berlin-Steglitz. It was one of the first centers of its kind in Germany to offer the then revolutionary shop-in-shop system. The opening was in April 1970. The construction time was two years and Georg Heinrichs was commissioned as the architect. Today, 60 shops and restaurants are spread over a sales area of 32,000 m². A special feature of the shopping center is that a weekly market has been held at its location since 1908. For the mall planning, the clients therefore stipulated that the traditional weekly market should be integrated into the center. This was done through a sales area on the ground floor, on which there were stalls and kiosks. As part of a renovation in 2005, the market disappeared.

Harry-Bresslau-Park

Harry-Bresslau-Park

Harry-Bresslau-Park, which was named after the German diplomat and historian Bresslau, is located on Lepsiusstrasse and Treitschkestrasse in Berlin-Steglitz. The park was officially nameless for years. In November 2008 it was given its current name. As part of the construction of the Boulevard Berlin, the green area was included in the overall concept of the shopping mall. Today the park is 1.8 hectares in size and has a large lawn and tall trees. In addition, paths, a climbing wall, a football field and a playground have been created. The redesign of the park is the result of a competition among architects, which Ortner + Ortner Baukunst won.

Lilienthalpark

Lilienthalpark

In the southwest of the German capital in Berlin-Steglitz there is a beautiful green area with the Lilienthalpark. The area, which belongs to the Lichterfelde district, is especially famous for its fly mountain. It is almost 60 m high and was once piled up by Otto Lilienthal's workers. The aviation pioneer from the 19th century had the plan to conduct flight tests there. Today nobody gets into the air there, but a short ascent to the summit is recommended to marvel at the colorful sunsets. Some athletes also use the stairs on the mountain to train their bodies. In spring, the park is particularly attractive, because then cherry trees shine in a delicate rosé.

Schlosspark Theater

Schlosspark Theater

The Schlosspark Theater is housed in the Villa Wrangelschlösschen in Berlin-Steglitz. In 1921, actors appeared in it for the first time to amuse their audience. After the war, the theater gained new fame thanks to Hildegard Knef. The legendary actress made her theatrical debut there. On stage, Samuel Beckett also made theater history by staging his most successful play: Waiting for Godot. In the 1990s, the premises were closed for renovation work. The theater changed its directorship and its organizer several times. Dieter Hallervorden has operated the house as a private theater since 2008.

Stadtpark Steglitz

Stadtpark Steglitz

The Stadtpark Steglitz in Berlin-Steglitz of the same name is an approximately 17 hectare green and recreational area that is freely accessible. The basis for the park was created at the beginning of the 20th century. Since then the appearance has changed several times. For the 100th anniversary in 2014, a renovation began, which was carried out gradually. Thanks to her, the city park again has its rose garden and its elm avenue, which were created according to the historical model. Work on the ponds also took place. In addition to the scenic beauty, the park landscape inspires with its activities. There are two large playgrounds and a small play area for children. It is also possible to play mini golf or have something hearty to eat.
