Charlottenburg offers a combination of elegant historic buildings, chic boutiques and stunning baroque gardens, and is one of Berlin’s most affluent areas. Spend the day exploring the neighbourhood’s cultural attractions, such as the zoo, enjoy a sophisticated evening at the theatre or visit one of the area’s top restaurants. At the heart of the borough is Kurfürstendamm, a sophisticated 3.5-kilometre-long shopping street that is lined with superb restaurants, galleries, art venues and cool boutiques. Head here for international designer stores, including Louis Vuitton, or visit KaDeWe department store, another huge attraction in the area and one of the best places to shop in the city. Despite its impressive shopping opportunities, the neighbourhood has retained its old-world charm and remains one of the most popular districts in Berlin.
