The district of Schölerberg is located in the south of Osnabrück. The only stream running through this district is the Riedenbach, flowing in a northerly direction and almost completely canalised up to a short section between the Waldpark Schölerberg and the Vila-Real-Platz. The following districts surround Schölerberg in a clockwise direction : Innenstadt, Fledder, Voxtrup, Nahne, Kalkhügel and Wüste.
Schölerberg has been a popular local leisure area since the start of the 20th century. Numerous artifacts such as walls, steps and viewing platforms highlight the Schölerberg’s former usage as a forest park. In the early 1950s the restaurants aimed at day trippers and summer toboggan run made for attractive destinations for excursions. Quite early on the Schölerberg was connected to the Osnabrück tramway network; tram line number two ran from the terminus station “Schölerberg” along Iburger Straße to Haste via Lutherkirche, Johannistor , Neumarkt, Nikolaiort and Hasetor.
