    Schönhausen Palace Gardens
Berlin-Niederschönhausen is located in the southwest of the district of Pankow and comprises the locations Schönholz, Majakowskiring and Nordend. The multi-family houses and villas that characterize the district are mainly from the late 19th and early 20th century. In addition, there are simple single-family houses and an industrial area.

Schönholz

In Schönholz in the very west of Niederschönhausen lies the public park Schönholzer Heide. This extensive and slightly hilly forest park is home to the Soviet Memorial Schönholz as well as other memorials, sports facilities, playgrounds, and a nature trail. To its south, the cemetery Pankow III and the Pankow Publc Park are located.

Schönhausen Palace

Schönhausen Palace is home to a museum that displays furniture and other artifacts from the time of the Queen of Prussia, Duchess Elisabeth Christine of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel-Bevern. The palace was once her summer residence. These days, concerts, readings and receptions take place in the banquet hall. The Schönhausen Palace Gardens are a landscape park with an old stock of trees through which the Panke stream flows.

Majakowskiring

The Majakovskiring, an oval road west of the Schönhausen Palace Gardens, was the residence of Berlin's industrial magnates before World War II. After the war, the socialist politicians of the GDR took over the stately mansions. After their domiciles were moved to Wandlitz in the 1960s and 70s, embassies settled here. The creatives and artists of the former GDR also lived in the immediate vicinity of this sealed-off community.

Nordend

In Nordend you can find old villas, apartment buildings, single-family houses and allotment gardens. The neighborhood is known for the tram depot, the cemetery Nordend, and the Rollberg.
