Charlottenburg

Although Charlottenburg had to relinquish its status as the centre of Berlin to Mitte after reunification, there are still plenty of places to go that once established the district as Zentrum West. The Kurfürstendamm, or Ku'damm for short, is a popular shopping mile for both tourists and locals. The Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, Bahnhof Zoo and the exhibition centre are also famous.

But Charlottenburg is not only touristic, it has a functioning social mix of old-established and new Berliners. People shop together in the Wilmersdorfer Strasse shopping street, stroll through the markets at Karl-August-Platz and Lehniner Platz or discover exotic goods and restaurants in Berlin's Chinatown on Kantstrasse.

Together you can also enjoy the many green corners of the district. The baroque palace garden behind Charlottenburg Palace, the Lietzenseepark as well as the garden monuments at Savignyplatz and around Brixplatz invite you to linger and relax as well as being cultivated inner-city oases.

Charlottenburg is today part of the administrative district Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf. The old district Charlottenburg is divided into the districts Charlottenburg, Westend and Charlottenburg-North.
