Brothers Grimm's resting place

Of the notable graves are those of the Brothers Grimm. Also the original grave site of the Bendler block executions in July 44 before exhumation and cremation.

Right in midst of the Kulturforum is an oasis that we entered to be the only persons for that half hour to absorb the tranquility, meditate and draw our day's energy.

One of my favourite places in Berlin! A truly unique cemetery that feels very much alive! Friends and relatives of the deceased have a lot of freedom to express their grief and hope due to the innovative and creative conditions. I don’t know where to start but there is a letter from pupils to their deceased English teacher, a site... More

Staying in Schoneberg

Neighbourhood Profile
In 1963, Schöneberg was the centre of the political west, inspiring John F. Kennedy to choose this area to famously announce, "Ich bin ein Berliner." Times may have changed, but modern-day Schöneberg still pays tribute to its historical legacies. Once the richest city outside of Berlin proper, the area's affluent past is still visible in ornate housing facades dating back to the Gründerzeit of the 19th century, while residents in fur coats walking their dogs or shopping in high-end KaDeWe continue the tradition with a modern flair. Schöneberg was also once the centre of the decadent and burlesque nightlife of the 1920s. It was here that Marlene Dietrich partied with Christopher Isherwood and the first gay bar in Germany was founded. Today, the gay community still revolves around Nollendorfplatz. The overground Ubahn station is even illuminated in rainbow colors, paying tribute to Schöneberg's progressive past.
