Once city hall for West Berlin, this building's most striking feature is its 230-foot clock tower and its Liberty Bell replica, a gift from America in 1949.

This is an historic place mainly because of the Kennedy speech. But it's also an impressing city hall building set in a pleasant plaza.

In 1963, Schöneberg was the centre of the political
west, inspiring John F. Kennedy to choose this area to
famously announce, "Ich bin ein Berliner." Times may
have changed, but modern-day Schöneberg still pays
tribute to its historical legacies. Once the richest
city outside of Berlin proper, the area's affluent
