Tempelhof-Schöneberg is situated in the south of Berlin, formed by merging Tempelhof and Schöneberg. It shares borders with Mitte and Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg in the north, Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf and Steglitz-Zehlendorf in the west and Neukölln in the east. Marienfelde Refugee Center Museum, Schöneberg Town Hall, historical St. Matthäus Kirchhof cemetery, etc., are some of the fascinating places of this district
This district is well connected using U-Bahn and S-Bahn lines. Platz der Luftbrücke is the major U-Bahn station with U6 line and Südkreuz is the major S-Bahn station with S41,S42,S45,S46,S2,S25 and S26 which is also connected with number of long distance buses.
Not only the district but also its residents are heterogeneous. The facets of the district are colorful and diverse: quiet and lively, alternative and modern, simple and exalted. Berliner’s and tourists meet at the traditional pubs, bars, restaurants and cafés at Winterfeldtplatz, which was once the stronghold of the squatter scene. People can enjoy Berlin’s biggest farmers market every Wednesday and Saturday here. Center of the gay-lesbian community are the streets around Nollendorfplatz. The neighborhood is hosting Europe’s biggest lesbian and gay street festival every year for two summer days since 1993. Schöneberg stands for diversity, acceptance and tolerance. That fact was also highly valued by David Bowie, who lived at Hauptstraße 155. Also Kurt Tucholsky, Albert Einstein and Marlene Dietrich lived in Schöneberg. Whereas Einstein resided at the elegant quarter “Bayrisches Viertel”, Marlene Dietrich was born at Leberstraße, the so-called “Red Island”. The “Red Island” got its name from the left oriented working class. Red Island, quarters around Bayrischer Platz, Bautzener Straße and Kaiser-Wilhelm-Platz are all social preserved areas.
