Overview This beautiful, upper-class area of Berlin is popular with tourists thanks to its museums and picturesque lakes. There is, of course, a more residential area of the district with a number of posh restaurants, bars, and cafes. It is safe, serene, and ideal for families and well-off professionals.
What can I do here? Apart from visiting one of the area’s many museums, you can check out the latest production at Schlosspark Theater. In the summer, enjoy swimming in three of Berlin’s most popular lakes: Wannsee, Krumme Lanke, and Schlanctensee. At night, get together with friends at Loch Ness, a Scottish pub with over 100 types of whiskey and great cocktails!
Fascinating fact The Steglitz town hall was built in 1898 in a Neo-Gothic style.
