Old villas and apartment houses dominate the view of Niederschönhausen. The Castle Schönhausen with its baroque park is found here, too. At times of GDR Niederschönhausen was a diplomat quarter.
24 embassy buildings were built up between Esplanade and Ibsenstraße around the Castle Schönhausen. Still today many of them are used as seats of diplomatic representations.
The restored Castle Schönhausen is one of the most important touristic attractions of Pankow. Interesting exhibitions about historic subjects are shown permanently inside the castle.
