Schöneberg was originally a village, founded by German settlers in the first third of the 13th century. The village’s name was probably chosen to attract settlers – 'schön' is the German word for “beautiful.” That’s why there are lots of places with Schön, Licht, Grün or Sommer (beautiful, light, green and summer) in their names. Having grown steadily, Schöneberg became part of Greater Berlin in 1920. Today, life in Schöneberg is quiet, yet it can be vibrant and is always extremely central. Several subway lines extend from here to all parts of the city. Schöneberg even has its own subway line, the shortest in the city. Then there’s Südkreuz station, which offers connections to local, regional and long-distance rail services. Schöneberg is also within easy reach of Berlin’s City-West district and the world-famous Ku’damm boulevard. What’s more, Schöneberg is also home to some of Berlin’s most attractive condominiums, such as the new, upscale complex that is currently under construction near Winterfeldtplatz, which is famous for its atmospheric weekly market.
