The Times Square of Berlin. Lots of shops, restaurants and people! They have their own German Walk of Fame, located in the middle of the road. Check it out.

A central train station underground and a busy platz on the ground with an open market where you can find memorabilia, food, cloth. It is about 150 meters away from the Sony center. Plenty of restaurants in the area

I love visiting this part of Berlin because of the great architecture. You can take an elevator to the top of one of the buildings (Potsdamer Platz 1) which has the fastest lift in Europe travelling at 8.5 metres per second. You can go to the 24th floor for a wonderful view of Berlin. The Sony Center is so fun... More

As more often you see it the more beautiful it is! You must see it in the day and during the nights. It is an architectural perfection!

Lovely Place to have lunch or dinner under the "tent". It was quite in the middle of a busy city but also gives you a sense of the rebuilding of Berlin.

A busy intersection surrounded by skyscrapers. Nice enough part of the city with some bars and restaurants around (Sony Centre a highlight). Look into the history of the wall in this part of Berlin, then look again at how it has been developed now .. that will impress you the most!

Be impressed by the skyscrapers that dominate the skyline in this unique blend of entertainment, shopping and culture. This place has got a lot to offer and note that you will not walk alone here. The architecture is quite unique and very special, all post WWII

The square, houses and park. A piece of wall brought onto the square and wall place is marked in the street. Worth a visit if you go over.

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighborhood Profile
Charlottenburg
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighborhood. Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city: upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theaters close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
