I know it was January but there didn't seem to be much at this venue. There most certainly was no atmosphere.

I think this is part of the new Berlin and it is so lively, with a great shopping mall, I spent hours in there, visiting designer shops and the Steiff store, as well as hundreds of different shops.

Nice location but not easy to navigate outside. The roadsigns were display nicely but not every place is labeled. Be sure to have google map with you to navigate the area.

A nice area. A piece of the wall is here. Shopping mall, cafe's abundant. Not expensive. The 3 tall buildings make you feel like you could be in NY, makes a nice picture if you get the light right. A really nice centre. Take your credit card if you intend to shop. There is still part of an old hotel... More

I was surprised by what I was able to find for reasonable prices in this mall. I believe there is also a cinema and plenty to eat. If you want to burn a hole in your credit card, do it here

Some really interesting information points and sections of wall all of which capture how bizarre life would have been in the past. The area feels safe and the people tend to keep themselves to themselves, not overly expensive

There's a lot of things to see near here. And from the main station there is the Berlin mall,if you like shopping this place can't be beaten. Plenty of restaurants around and lots of big attractions that are all easily accessible.

The lift goes very quickly all the way to the top and you'll certain notice the speed! I have to admit to feeling quite dizzy once I was at the viewing area. Partly due to the lift but mostly due to how high up you are at the very top. It's fabulous of a clear day. You can see for... 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.
