1963 年的舍嫩贝格是西方的政治中心，曾吸引约翰▪F▪肯尼迪来此留下了“Ich bin ein Berliner（我是柏林人）”的名言。尽管时代不断变迁，如今的舍嫩贝格仍旧延续过往传奇。它曾是柏林外围最富裕的城市，从那源自十九世纪繁荣时期的华丽房屋外墙仍可看出它富足的过去。如今当地居民仍会穿着毛皮大衣在街上遛狗，或是在高端的卡迪威百货购物，延续了该地区的富裕传统。舍嫩贝格在二十世纪二十年代曾以颓废反叛的夜生活而闻名。玛琳·黛德丽与克里斯多福·伊舍伍曾在此聚会，德国第一家同性恋酒吧也是在此诞生。时至今日，诺伦多尔夫广场附近仍汇聚了不少同性恋社区。地上地铁站甚至漆成上了彩虹色，向舍嫩贝格的不断进步致敬。
