The Ermanstraße is situated in the locality Steglitz which makes part of the district Steglitz-Zehlendorf, situated in the southwest of Berlin. Together with Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf, Steglitz-Zehlendorf belongs to the upper-class neighbourhoods of Berlin, with a high number of luxurious residential areas.
The Ermanstraße itself is only 5 minutes by foot from the center of Steglitz, situated around the Steglitz Rathaus (Steglitz City Hall) and the famous boulevard, the Schloßstrasse, offering numerous shopping facilities from shopping centers to small independent retailers. The public transport connections are also excellent. There are the subway station (U9) and the commuter train station (S-Bahn) at Rathaus Steglitz. Both of them can be easily reached by foot. A direct bus line, X83, to the Freie Universität‘s campus is at the corner of Grunewaldstraße and Lepsiusstraße, some 180m from the Ermanstraße 25.
The recent residential projects in the district have been also aimed at a certain higher-class due to their top-quality and exclusivity. One of the most famous is the “Fünf Morgen Dahlem Urban Village” in Dahlem, developed by Stofanel, including 50.000m² of luxurious townhouses, villas and apartments, built around an artificial lake.
