Schöneberg is internationally renowned for its homosexual culture in its „Regenbogenkiez“. From the 1920s the area around Nollendorfplatz developed a gay-lesbian subculture. The famous nightclub „Eldorado“ was a popular meeting place of Marlene Dietrich, Claire Waldoff and Christopher Isherwood. In 1996, Schöneberg was the first district to raise the rainbow colours in front of the town hall, to mark the beginning of Berlin Pride Week. Together, the people of Schöneberg and Berlin are thus contributing to an atmosphere of liberal and enlightened urban culture. That makes us very proud.
Mayor of Tempelhof-Schöneberg
