- The first section of Schloßstraße is characterised by beautiful bourgeois houses with turrets and ornate gable roofs. Yet it is the section between the Bierpinsel and Forum Steglitz that Schloßstraße is most famous for. Even though Schloßstraße cannot compete in the recognisability stakes with Kurfürstendamm or Friedrichstraße, it is still one of Berlin's most popular shopping streets. Out here, shoppers will find all that they could dream of—ritzy department stores, small family-run shops, fashion boutiques, supermarkets, banks, restaurants and a multi-screen cinema, Titania Palast. Schloßstraße has two or three U-Bahn stations, the most interesting of which is Schloßstraße station itself, a prime example of garish seventies architecture.
