Charlottenburg Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
Only a stone's throw away from the glitter of Ku'damm, between
Olivaer Platz and Ludwigskirchplatz, is where the rather more chic
young scene hangs out. The guests in the currently fashionable drinking
places are pretty stylish. There's a tough battle for parking spaces in
front of Checker at Olivaer Platz. It's a matter of esteem to try and
park your convertible in the front row. Walking down Pariser Straße,
you pass the disco Madow, an institution for the past 20 years.
Regardless of passing trends, on weekends pop, soul and rock are played
here. A few steps further on, Jimmy's Diner and Poco Loco do a roaring
trade in hamburgers, Mexican food and margaritas. If you can't find a
table here, you can always get a take-away hot dog from Mike's American
Deli in Ludwigskirchstraße. Afterwards you can quench your thirst in
Cafe Solo - also good for breakfast - or in Weyer's on
Ludwigskirchplatz, which is great for sitting outside under the trees

portions. There's a lot going on in this part of West Berlin - just
take a look for yourself.
