The district is quiet and middle-class with lots of trees and greenery. Schloßstraße is a popular place for shopping not only among Steglitzers.
Schloßstraße is one of the most frequented shopping streets in Berlin, offering large department stores, chain stores, and smaller boutiques. Its trademarks are the traffic circle, a building complex with a high-rise tower, and the futuristic Bierpinsel, which was originally planned as a restaurant. To the west of Schloßstraße, especially until Lepsiusstraße, there are beautiful streets with long rows of old buildings and many trees. Despite the proximity to the shopping district, this area is rather quiet. East of Schloßstraße, the streets are shorter and less green due to the nearby city highway. This area features many restaurants, cafés, and bars.
Südende (Southend) is a former villa and country house complex in the far southeast of Steglitz, situated between the Insulaner, Münsterdamm, Tempelhof and Teltow canal. Most of the original buildings were destroyed in World War II and much was rebuilt or reconstructed in the 1950s. The area between the A103 city highway and the Südende district features a variety of buildings: beautiful old houses as well as new buildings and a few single-family homes around Lessingstraße. Elisenstraße is planted with chestnut trees. In general, the area is green and comparatively quiet - typical for Steglitz.
The Bismarckviertel is located in the northeast of Steglitz right next to Schöneberg, between Feuerbachstraße, Thorwaldsenstraße, Bergstraße, and Körnerstraße. All fifteen streets belonging to the neighborhood were named after persons, places, and offices related to Otto von Bismarck. In the center of the Bismarckviertel lies Lauenburger Platz. The garden monument is nicely landscaped with an old pond, curved paths, a lookout point, and a playground, all hidden in the shadows of old trees.
Steglitz City Park
The southeast of Steglitz also offers a variety of buildings. Two green spaces of the district, Steglitz city park and the Goebenwiese, are located here. The area around Breite Straße features mostly new buildings and low houses with front yards. Here, too, residents enjoy peace and tranquility. Around the Goebenwiese and south of the Steglitz city park there are some single-family and two-family houses as well as apartment buildings from the 1950s and 60s, which are attractive because of their location close to nature. Markusplatz between Steglitzer Damm, Albrechtstraße and Halskestraße is a beautiful square with a park and a large church. It is surrounded by old buildings, most of which offer a beautiful view of the square. Stores selling daily necessities are always close-by in this otherwise quiet neighborhood.
