The District Charlottenburg

As Charlottenburg possesses many important sights, which have already been significantly composing the cityscape of Berlin during division of Germany,  it has been considered as the centre of Western Berlin already many years ago. Although today the eastern and the western part have long been reunited, not much has changed regarding the importance of Charlottenburg and it still is one of the most important centres of the metropolis. Many years ago it has already been an exclusive residential area of the Prussian Nobility. Today, Charlottenburg belongs to the exclusive quarters of Berlin with various shopping possibilities, rich cultural offerings and a wide choice of restaurants, bars and cafés.

Shopping

For those who like shopping, Charlottenburg offers an extensive choice. In the first place the most famous shopping boulevard of Berlin, called Kurfürstendamm, is located here. There you will find various stores of well-known labels next to those of exclusive designers, as well as shops with a quite curious range of products. The shopping streets take their course from the Kurfürstendamm over the Tauentzienstraße and to the Wilmersdorfer Straße. Further exclusive stores, such as Bulgari, Cartier, Burberry or Chanel are located between Leibnizstraße and Schlüterstraße. It becomes exceedingly exquisite in the so-called Designbogen, where well-known labels, as well as young designers present themselves and offer their products from fashion over accessories, or even furniture, for sale.
 
Additionally, shopping malls, like the Neue Kranzler Eck at the Kurfürstendamm, the Europacenter in the Tauentzienstraße and the Stilwerk in the Kantstraße, ensure roofed and very extensive shopping possibilities. Besides, two stores of the chain "Karstadt" are located in Charlottenburg – in the Wilmersdorfer Straße, as well as at the Kurfürstendamm.
 
In 2007, the extremely modern shopping mall Wilmersdorfer Arcaden has been integrated into the oldest pedestrian precinct of Berlin, namely the Wilmersdorfer Straße. On an area of around 25,000m² you will find about 100 shops and gastronomic facilities.
 
The huge store of the bookstore chain "Hugendubel" is located in the Tauentzienstraße and will definitely wow every bookworm. The very enormous range invites you in, whereas you can make yourself comfortable in the couch area. The in-house café seems especially convenient to recover from the long journey through the world of literature or even starting to read the newly purchased novel.
 
A downright insider tip for enthusiasts over the traditional vinyl records stands a little remote in the Tegeler Weg and is called Platten Pedro. There was no space anymore for CD’s, as the shop nearly bursts at the seams, due to its many records. Nevertheless, owner Pedro gladly helps those who get lost.
 
The Straße des 17. Juni (German for: 17th June Street) is extremely popular in Berlin. Every weekend, reagrdless of the weather, many different visitors meet there between 10 and 17 o’clock to visit the art and flea market. It's not only extraordinary huge, but already well-known beyond the borders of the City by now. The Charlottenburg Gate builds the clear division between the art market and fthe flea market. The conventional flea market in the north is THE place to be for all rummage enthusiasts. Divers – partly high-ranking – art dealer meet at the point south of the Charlottenburg Gate. Primarily drawings, fashion, puppets, jewellery, pottery, as well as wooden toys from artists and artisans are sold here.
 
The perfect souvenir for those visitors in Berlin that have a passion for fragrance can be found at Harry Lehman. This perfumery already exists since 1958 in the possession of the family Lehmann and is in great demand till this day. Countless fragrances are stored here in big glass tanks and will be filled and sold in small bottles, if wished. Who dithers between all sweet, flowery, soapy or strong scents, can even get a completely individual perfume created for himself.

Nightlife

The nightlife in Charlottenburg primarily evolves around the Savigny Platz. It is especially the meeting point for the notables from movie, theatre and politics.

With high heels and Moët the Chanel generation parties on the 20th floor of the Europacenter in the Tauentzienstraße. There the Puro Skylounge is located and you can enjoy a breathtaking atmosphere with an amazing view over the City. It offers you the chance to see Berlin from an extraordinary perspective. Nevertheless, not only the heels of the female party guests, but also the entrance fees and drink prices are considerably high.

Moreover, the Maxxim in the Joachimstaler Straße is a meeting point for the rich and the beautiful in Berlin. With such an ambiance and the demand of the guests it becomes extremely difficult to overcome the bouncers. The music played is mostly international club sound.

The A-Trane in the Bleibtreustraße delivers the perfect jazz-sound. The club already hosted concerts of several well-known and upcoming jazz artists. Nevertheless, they favour upcoming talents, who want to give a proof of their giftedness and hot up the party. The A-Trane is open throughout the whole week, but the events change. The entrance fee varies – depending on the event – between €5 and €20.

The very small, compact and dark Jazz-Club, called Quasimodo is located in the Kantstraße. It is the oldest jazz club of Berlin. However, due to its schedule enhancement, the visitor has to count on live acts of salsa, soul, rock, blues and disco, as well.

Culture & Entertainment

The cultural activities, Charlottenburg has to offer, are also very attractive. For instance, the famous Deutsche Oper (German for: German Opera) arranges for a multi-facetted program. It is also jointly responsible for the fact that Berlin by now belongs to the richest and most famous cities for classical concerts worldwide.

Furthermore, there are several famous theatres enriching the cultural cityscape of Berlin, such as the Schaubühne at the Lehniner Platz as a classic theatre, the Renaissance Theatre in the Knesebeckstraße and the Theatre at the Kurfürstendamm (“Theater am Kurfürstendamm”). The “Theater des Westens” (German for: Theater of the West) is one of the most beautiful and renowned theatres nationwide and particularly known for performances, like “Blue Man Group”, “Dirty Dancing” or “Der Schuh des Manitu”.

For historically interested visitors in Berlin-Charlottenburg, the Gedenkstätte Plötzensee can be recommended. The memorial place has been built in remembrance of the victims of the German National Socialism. The original room for execution shall today be the place for remembrance.

Furthermore, the documentation exhibition “Geschichtsort Olympiagelände 1909 – 1936 – 2006” (German for: Historical place Olympic area) is located nearby the S-Bahn station Pichelsberg on the former Reich Sports Area.

Also the experience exhibition “The Story of Berlin” at the Kurfürstendamm is well worth seeing. By means of modern multimedia engineering accessible sceneries have been designed, where visitors may go on an exciting journey through 800 years of Berlin-History.

In the centre of the so-called Breitscheidplatz, the Kaiser-Wilhelm Memorial Church finds itself, which has been left standing as a ruin after a bombing in the year 1943. Eventually, next to it the New Kaiser-Wilhelm Memorial Church has been inaugurated in 1961, which now is especially known due to its breathtaking blue glass facade.

The huge exhibition and congress centre ICC (“International Congress Centre”) is located south of the Theodor-Heuss-Platz. There also the Radio Tower finds itself – another landmark in Berlin. From there, the Heerstraße proceeds further to the Olympic Stadium, which is also the home arena of the football team Hertha BSC. Right next to it, one will come across the famous Waldbühne, an impressive amphitheatre in Berlin. Especially among the open-air stages of Berlin, this is the biggest and mostly favoured venues for international concerts.

The central point of the district is formed by the baroque Castle of Charlottenburg. It is approachable through the Schlossstraße, which leads directly to this magnificent building. Apart from the unique baroque garden, also the – outside France – most comprehensive collection of French paintings from the 18th Century is extremely interesting.

Sport & Recreation

Who needs recreation from a huge shopping tour in Charlottenburg withdraws mostly in the parkway around the lake called Lietzensee, near by the Wilmersdorfer Straße. This area is a true oasis in this compact shopping zone.

Eat & Drink

Those who feel like consuming original Berlin food and drinks, surely will find a rich offering in Charlottenburg. One interesting pub is the Brauhaus Lemke at the Luisenplatz – near the Castle of Charlottenburg. Since 1987 they spoil their guests and the quality has not decreased ever since then. The summer patio is especially attractive, which offers a unique view on the whole castle during warm summer days. The home-brewed beers are produced with great care and  are extremely popular among the guests.

In the “Schwarze Café” in the Kantstraße one is supplied with food and drinks around the clock. The breakfast is also worth a visit. Already since 1978 the cult store lures Berlin inhabitants and tourists from all age groups into its floors. The prices are also absolutely human – you will have to pay between 5 and 10€ for one dish. In summer the idyllic garden offers a really nice ambience.

The Curry Sausage Shop "Curry 195" is snazzy and entices Berliners and visitors equally in Kurfürstendamm to Charlottenburg. It is said that here various VIPs have already satiated their hunger. The highlight of the noble booth is probably the Champagne which you can order for a price premium of about 60€ in addition to your sausage. Now, who is still saying Berlin isn’t extremely fancy?

Local Transport

The connection of Charlottenburg to the other districts of Berlin is very well developed. The East-West-connection-line is determined by the S-Bahn lines (German for: Suburban railway) S3, S5, S7 and S9. The metro line U2 passes the city centre towards the east and ends in the party area Prenzlauer Berg, while the U7 from Spandau leads from Charlottenburg to Rudow in the southeast of Berlin. Also the lines S41 and S42 of the circular railway cross the district which guarantees the connection everywhere around the centre. Besides, the railway station Zoologischer Garten is an important regional station. To the north of the exhibition centre the central coach terminal (ZOB) is located. The airport Tegel lies to the north and nearby Charlottenburg.
