SURROUNDINGS
AT A GLANCE

This interactive map gives a good impression of the nearer surroundings of Geisberg Berlin.

Bayerischer Platz

Am Bayerischen Platz und in seiner Umgebung leben wie schon vor hundert Jahren viele Künstler und Intellektuelle. Der Buchladen Bayerischer Platz dient schon seit 1920 als Treffpunkt für Anwohner und kluge Köpfe. An die jüdische Geschichte Schönebergs erinnert der neu restaurierte U-Bahnhof in seinem Café.

Ku’damm

Deutschlands bekannteste Einkaufsstraße ist fußläufig von Geisberg Berlin erreichbar. Bekannte Nobelmarken säumen die Straßen im hinteren Teil, während sich weiter vorne das gesamte Potpourri internationaler Modemarken auf wenigen hundert Metern ballt.

Ludwigkirchplatz

Die Gegend hier nennt man auch „Klein-Paris“. Kleine Boutiquen mit Designermode und ausgefallenen Trends, exquisite Feinkost- und Fachgeschäfte mit besonderem Flair sowie viele Restaurants mit deutscher und internationaler Küche reihen sich aneinander.

Savignyplatz

Ein grüne Oase mitten im trubeligen Charlottenburg bildet dieser Platz an der Kantstraße. Viele Cafés und Restaurants bieten den Berlinern einen weiteren Reiz. Empfehlenswert ist der Bücherbogen in den S-Bahnbrücken. Ein Buchladen für Architektur, Kunst, Design und Fotografie, der keine Wünsche offen lässt.

‘Have you tried
the Bavarian Quarter?’

The Bavarian Quarter forms a triangle between Schöneberg, Charlottenburg and Wilmersdorf. And it has been the epitome of cultured living for more than a century. Once home to free spirits and anyone who was anyone, it is now a firmly established part of town with a rich history, an abundance of flair and the full range of amenities. At the beginning of the 20th century, this area was agricultural land. Valuable agricultural land. Schöneberg was once a city in its own right. But as Berlin’s population continued to grow, a wealthy middle class began to emerge. As a result, the demand for spacious flats to please a discerning clientele just grew and grew. The area was perfect. Just a stone’s throw away, the new west side blossomed, embodying a new and modern spirit. Kurfürstendamm – with its elegant town houses, shops and amenities – was a magnet for both the artistic avant-garde and modern urbanites hungry for progress. This was soon picked up on by Georg Haberland, director of Berlinische Boden-Gesellschaft.

From 1900 onwards, a flagship residential area was built under his auspices. Meeting all the requirements of modern urban construction, this was a genteel area with front gardens, imposing facades and grand public spaces such as Viktoria-Luise-Platz. Haberland designed the buildings in line with the most modern standards, and spacious flats with up to twelve rooms and the utmost comfort (bathrooms, hot water, electric lighting and lifts) appealed to a well-to-do clientele. And the area was completed in just a few years. ‘Have you tried the Bavarian Quarter?’ is what people would say if they were asked to recommend a highly regarded doctor or lawyer. It remains one of Berlin’s most popular residential areas to this day, except that it’s no longer on the outskirts of the city – but instead right in the centre. So it’s all the more astonishing that it’s so green and tranquil. But even in the 21st century, the area still boasts no shortage of amenities and temptations.
