Charlottenburg

Filled with museums and palatial gardens, Charlottenburg is a sincerely sophisticated central Berlin neighborhood.

Charlottenburg is well-suited for sophisticated evening entertainment. Filled with theatres, museums, and fine dining establishments, this west Berlin neighborhood steps out in style. During the day, Charlottenburg’s palace, gardens, and palatial gardens invite countless picture-snappers to stroll its manicured paradise. Charlottenburg’s high-end shopping complexes and notable cleanliness distinguish it from many of Berlin’s vintage and street art inclined neighborhoods, although the record shops and wheat-pasted corridors of Moabit are just a neighborhood away.
