The Borough of Steglitz-Zehlendorf
Greater Wannsee

Steglitz-Zehlendorf is in the extreme southwest of Berlin. Zehlendorf is together with Charlottenburg the wealthiest part of Berlin and has many beautiful lakes and forests, but also lots of culture and the biggest university in Berlin. See our borough maps.

The most famous lake in the district is the Wannsee with its Strandbad, where on hot summer weekends many families go, but there are also other lakes, where bathing is allowed and even free. Steglitz was merged with Zehlendorf in 2001 and is an ordinary (but nice) residential and shopping district. Zehlendorf is more interesting for tourists because of its many museums, beautiful nature areas and old castles.

The center of Steglitz is the U-/S-Bahn station "Rathaus Steglitz." One of the most popular shopping streets in Berlin is the "Schlossstrasse" with a good selection of specialized shops, especially medium and low-priced fashion shops. Additionally there are four small to medium-sized malls where you can find almost everything you need.

Zehlendorf is spread quite far and depending on the area different stations are the best. Wannsee, Grunewald or Dahlem-Dorf are the best stations for the most interesting areas.
