Spacious, large-scale, and imaginative architecture, nice outdoor space under the dome, next to the high-tech fountain and IMAX theater. Outdoor space looks like a fun place to get a bite to eat. In summer 2015 there is a very nice exhibit in the arcade about the Berlin Wall; great photographs and narrative commentary! Franchise stores and food court will make... More

Here you'll find everything for your entertainment. Not only the Sony Center and Multiplex but also countless restaurant & bars. Even a huge shopping mall which I sadly couldn't visit but which is on top of my list for my next trip to Berlin. Very lively so if you are looking for a quite place this is definitely not the...

This is one of the best tourist spots in all of Berlin. Go early and stay late. It is a vibrant exciting place to see every aspect of the Berlin people scene. This area will offer virtually every aspect of the Berlin scene if you take the time to enjoy it.

Such an important location, even more so for any Bowie fan. It was great to walk around the whole area and see the amazing contrasts.

Amazing modern architecture, indoor/outdoor huge glass enclosed square. Very modern looking, full of places to spend your money. Walk through it at night when it is most impressive. Also has a big imax movie theater in it.

My hotel was right across the street from the metro stop. Even though I walked most places, it was easy to take the metro to some more far flung locations. Cheap and quick way to get around the city.,

Branded as the New Berlin Potsdamer Platz gives you another dimension to Berlin. There is a variety of places you can see, visit, and enjoy. Plenty of shopping and civic spaces. Sony Centre with its high glass cupola is my main attraction. There is the film museum, a theatre, musical stages, two multiplex cinemas with original language movies, hotels, and... More

We first passed through on our bike tour, but then we had to come back. The new buildings are really impressive, and all that open space makes you feel very small, but also protected. The sunset light reflecting off the buildings was a beautiful sight. The Sony center is a good place to have a drink or something to eat,... More

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.
