A Day in Charlottenburg

Morning

Begin your tour of Charlottenburg at Breitscheidplatz and stroll down Kurfürstendamm in a westerly direction. Turn left into Fasanenstraße to visit the Käthe-Kollwitz-Museum and to see the Literaturhaus. You could stop for a mid-morning breakfast at Café Wintergarten in the Literaturhaus, before going back up Fasanenstraße in a northerly direction. On the left you will pass the Kempinski Hotel Bristol Berlin, and on the right you can see the Jewish House and the Ludwig-Erhard-Haus. Diagonally opposite, on the other side of Kantstraße, stands the Theater des Westens . Continue along Kantstraße on the left side until you reach the shopping centre Stilwerk , a place no one has ever been known to leave without buying something!

Afternoon

A good place for lunch is the restaurant Soultrane in Stilwerk shopping centre. Afterwards, continue along Kantstraße to Savignyplatz. Now explore the small streets around the square, Grolman-, Carmer-, Knesebeck- and Mommsenstraße. Small shops invite you to browse and spend your money, and the Café Savigny is a good place for a fruit flan with whipped cream and a cup of coffee. For the early evening, Dressler is recommended, here you will find a range of dishes typical of a real French brasserie.

A Day in Spandau

Morning

Start with a journey on the U-Bahn. From the centre of town, take a U2 train in the direction of Ruhleben, and at Bismarckstraße station change to the U7 train in the direction of Rathaus Spandau. Ten minutes later you will have reached the centre of Spandau Old Town , where you can visit Breite Straße and Nikolaikirche.

Before returning to Charlottenburg, make sure you visit the Zitadelle Spandau. There, in the museum café, you can also enjoy a late breakfast. Return by U-Bahn. This time, get off the train at the Wilmersdorfer Straße station, one of the few pedestrianized areas in Berlin. This is a particularly good area for shopaholics and bargain hunters.

Afternoon

From Wilmersdorfer Straße a 20-minute walk along Kaiserdamm in a westerly direction will take you to the Funkturm and the Messegelände with the “Ehrenhalle”. You could have lunch at the Funkturm-Restaurant, and enjoy the magnificent views. Nearby, the Haus des Rundfunks (broadcasting house) and the Georg-Kolbe-Museum are worth visiting. After your museum visit, if you still have some time and energy, you could take bus No. 218 from here to the Olympiastadion . In the evening, return to Charlottenburg and Savignyplatz by S75 from S-Olympiastadion. Here you can enjoy the famed Franconian cooking at Florian’s .
