Formerly the city centre of West Berlin, the borough of Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf is the heart of the city’s western district, rivalling the former East Berlin with its many attractions. Contemporary and quirky, Charlottenburg-Wilmsdorf is a combination of two districts and boasts many choices in theatres, cabarets, dance clubs and boutique stores, although the area has traditionally been known as the city’s science and industrial centre. Since the destruction of the Berlin Wall in 1989 and the subsequent reunification of the city, this borough has participated in an unofficial competition with the eastern boroughs to attract tourists to the area.
- Relive Jesse Owens’ triumphs and the intimidating spectacle put on by Hitler’s minions at the Berlin Olympic Stadium and Bell Tower, which also hosted the FIFA World Cup Football final in 2006.
- Experience the beauty of the late 18th-century Charlottenburg Palace, constructed as the summer residence for Sophie Charlotte, wife of the Elector of Brandenburg, Frederick III.
- Appreciate the architecture and colourful renderings inside the Charlottenburg-Wilmserdorf’s Gedächtniskirche, or Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, which was built around the remnants of the first church constructed on that site, which was essentially destroyed in an air raid on Berlin in 1943.
Charlottenburg-Wilmserdorf is easy to reach with the help of Berlin’s extensive public transportation system. Multiple U-Bahn, S-Bahn and bus routes run through the borough with stops at or near many famous attractions. Most stops are just minutes away from the Berlin Hauptbahnhof, which connects the city to all major cities in Europe by train, many through high-speed ICE service. Two international airports, Tegel and Schönefeld, serve the city with regional and international flights to cities in Europe and Asia. The new Brandenburg International Airport is also set to open in early 2013.
