The area at the heart of City West demonstrates the best of sophisticated, elegant, mature Berlin. World class theatres, museums and restaurants line the chic boulevards; this is the place to come and be seen. Traditionally viewed as more conservative and less exciting than its counterparts in the East, today Charlottenburg and Wilmserdorf are experiencing a quiet renaissance, with a growing youthful hipness. The acres of nature and forest in the district’s west mean there is a little of everything in this cosmopolitan western district.
