Steglitz

Steglitz is a south Berlin neighborhood that refuses to adopt suburban conventions.

This south Berlin neighborhood challenges suburban stereotypes. Steglitz tempers the commerciality of its shopping complexes and cafes with avant-garde structures like the Bierpinsel building and Die Spiegelwand Holocaust memorial. Although this neighborhood may welcome crowds of kitsch-enthusiasts during the holidays, it remains refined for the better part of the year. Catering to sippers rather than guzzlers, Steglitz converses delicately and gets its beauty sleep—all while providing central city access via its two Bahn lines.

The Architectural Intersection of Traditional and Contemporary

Despite Steglitz's conservative leanings, the neighborhood's most famous landmark, the Bierpinsel building, embodies contemporary aesthetics.

LAGANA

Minutes away from the re-imagined lines, shapes, and two-story murals of the Bierpinsel, Steglitz fills its streets with rustic churches and refined civic structures.
