My family have lived here for a long time, and I've seen it change and get better to an area that's pretty cool to visit now. There's some really good restaurants, cafes and pubs now and the whole Rea feels safe too.
This is a much less touristy part of Berlin, nevertheless, it is lively, colorful and interesting. It is great to walk around and look at the old architecture beside the modern buildings. There are many coffee shops, bars, restaurants and shopping as well.
A short walk from Nollendorf Plaz station we visited winterfeldtplatz market on a Saturday. An eclectic mix of stalls and few tourists. Charming, affluent area with some interesting houses, we checked out Christopher Isherwood's place on Nollendorfstrasse which features in some walking tours.
Schoneberg is one of my favourite areas of Berlin,it's a cool and happening district,it's certainly not as touristic as Alexanderplatz or the Mitte district but it does have a great vibe to it.

This is not a Kiez like the others. It is very disparate and no one really knows where it begins and ends. The gay quarter and red light district contrast markedly with the richer areas while the spot of the famous JFK speech at the...More
In 1963, Schöneberg was the center 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 center 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.

We found the area very busy during the day and quiet at night. I walked from my hotel to the local shops alone during the day, several times. At night I went out to eat with my husband and adult daughter. We always walked about 15 minutes to local restaurants using side streets. At no time did I feel unsafe. We saw very few people on the street in December. I hope this helps. I believe this area has a large Turkish population.
