Steglitz represents bourgeois idyll and big city flair in equal measure. The district offers a mix of quiet residential areas, green spaces, some culture and good shopping opportunities, making it attractive for families with children, pensioners and students as well. The latter appreciate Steglitz because of its proximity to the Free University of Berlin.

From the social housing buildings of the 60s to single-family homes, city villas, beautiful old buildings and Wilhelminian style mansions, you can find almost every type of residential building in Steglitz. However, rents can be quite high in some parts.

The larger Steglitz district is subdivided into the districts of Steglitz, Lichterfelde, and Lankwitz.
