Good for shopping

There are so many shops to choose from. There was plenty of restaurants and coffee shops to rest in from shopping.

I am totally in love with this place. If I could, I would spend there all day. Amazing buildings, beautiful lights. You need to visit it at night!

A very vibrant Platz - we bought our tickets for the Hop on Hop off bus here and ate in a couple of restaurants in the area. A good place to visit and a hub for transport around Berlin.

Went there when the Christmas markets and decorations were up so very festive. All of your shopping needs are catered for with designer shops in the Mall of Berlin and outlet stores around for all budgets. The Mall also has a floor with just food and eating outlets with many different countries cuisine available at a very reasonable cost.

Its tucked in behind an office block as you leave the U-Bahn. Worth finding though as the shopping and food is very good.

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighborhood Profile
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.
