Schloss Charlottenburg

Schloss Charlottenburg

If you arrive at Zoo train station and don't want to plunge into the city right away, turn directly into the Tiergarten, where you can get refreshment and a nice taste of green at Schleusenkrug or the Cafe am Neuen See. Most tourists head straight for Kurfürstendamm - and not only for shopping. Later at night people will meet here in the numerous bars, pubs and clubs. Three area's around here are specially popular: the streets bordering elegant Savignyplatz, and Ludwigkirchplatz and Olivaer Platz, which are linked by Pariser Straße, where the Twens have taken over.

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 in summer. If you are wilting by now, we recommend Berlin Bar in Uhlandstraße - tiny, but good. In the smart bar Zur Weißen Maus you can savour the atmosphere of the '20s. An outfit to match isn't a bad idea. Fans of far Eastern cooking can tuck into Korean delicacies at Kwang-Ju in Emser Straße. At the end of Pariser Straße, at Spichernstraße U-Bahn station, is Hui Qin, a cheap Asian snack bar with big delicious portions. There's a lot going on in this part of West Berlin - just take a look for yourself.

Charlottenburg is reknown for it's foreign inhabitants that moved to this place in order to regroup after leaving their home territory.

For instance is the Persian community which can be found in C-burg.
Furthermore are the Russian emigrants in Western Berlin  located in
C-Burg.
