Together with the Volkspark Wilmersdorf, the Rudolph-Wilde-Park forms a green corridor between Schöneberg and Wilmersdorf. It lays around one of Berlin’s most beautiful U-Bahn stations: Rathaus Schöneberg.
Originally called Stadtpark Schöneberg, the park was renamed after the assassination of Kennedy. Why? Well, the former square in front of Schöneberg’s town hall called Rudolph-Wilde-Platz was where Kennedy claimed to be a Berliner. After his death, the square was renamed and became John-F.-Kennedy-Platz and Wilde, Schöneberg’s first mayor, still deserved to be commemorated in the public space. And there you go: Stadtpark became Rudolph-Wilde-Park!
