A short and narrow street that runs parallel to Schöneberger Ufer is called Am Karlsbad. Its somewhat unusual name harks back to a merchant from Karlsbad in Bohemia who opened a bathhouse directly placed at the Landwehr Canal in 1800. The merchant worshiped the Prince of Prussia. Therefore he wanted to name the street along the bathhouse after him. 1828 he was finally allowed to name the street “Auf dem Carlsbade”. Now, after various changes of this name, the street is called since 1920 consistently in Am Karlsbad. The bathhouse does not exists anymore. But the park is still present and damps the traffic noise of the busy Schöneberger Ufer.
The street Am Karlsbad is adorned by magnificent old buildings that could not be more beautiful and ornate. However, there are also several new buildings that form with their glassy facades and smooth surfaces a cool contrast to the historic buildings. Offices and apartment buildings string together harmoniously.
