Berlin's Classy West

Style & Sophistication

The district of Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf 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.

Culture & Lifestyle
Berliners have long flocked to this elegant western district for its stylish, refined, affluent way of life. Think diamonds, fur coats and champagne. And while this is true to an extent, there is a burgeoning scene in Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf, centred around the concept shopping mall BIKINI Berlin and its neighbouring 25Hours hotel, which is young, cool and trendy. A night out here is as much about cocktails and avant-garde art as sekt and opera.
Yet, the overriding character of life in Charlottenburg and Wilmersdorf remains glamorous sophistication. Rüdesheimer Strasse was recently voted one of Europe’s most beautiful streets by the NY Times, Ku’damm is world-famous for its shopping, and the restaurants along Kantstrasse are among the best in the city. It’s easy to live well, here.
Residents here are really spoiled for choice when it comes to nature. Smaller parks and lakes are dotted throughout the district, with Lietzensee in Charlottenburg and Fennsee in Wilmersdorf two outstanding examples.
The 3,000-hectare Grunewald forest, which is shared between this district and the neighbouring Steglitz-Zehlendorf, dominates life in the area. Mountain bikers rush along specially-cultivated bike paths, avoiding the local wildlife and occasional wild boar. To the north of the forest lies Teufelsberg hill, a former US listening station during the Cold War, and one of Berlin’s most picturesque locations.
Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf is where academia, culture, leisure, tourism, commerce, life and work come together, though it is retail which truly shines, particularly along Kurfürstendamm, Breitscheidplatz and Tauentzienstraße.
Meanwhile, the exhibition grounds at Messe Berlin are amongst the busiest in Europe, with more than 100 regional, national and international events held here every year. Additionally, the district has two of Berlin’s most prestigious universities, the Technical University of Berlin, and the Berlin University of the Arts, the largest art school in Europe.
