Things are royal in Charlottenburg. This is not only due to the castle that gives it its name, but also to this very specific way of life in City West, which always has a touch of luxury. You could also say: Charlottenburg is the champagne of Berlin. Just as Kreuzberg would be unpretentious sparkling wine and Mitte would be more sophisticated Crémant, the western cult district is characterized by one thing above all: elegance and exclusivity.

This is of course a cliché - but there is definitely something to it. You can feel this when you walk around between Ku'damm, Ernst-Reuter-Platz and Einsteinufer on a beautiful Sunday . It's a great place to stroll: for example, past the zoo and along beautiful old-style streets to the eponymous Charlottenburg Palace , where the centuries-old baroque garden invites you to stroll. If you're good on foot, you can walk the 5 km to the Großer Tiergarten along the Spree. Or go for a leisurely walk around the idyllic Lietzensee .

The best place to start the day is in one of the countless cafés along Kantstrasse , for example at Stuttgarter Platz or Savignyplatz . The colorful mix of Charlottenburgers and tourists can be admired particularly well there. Breakfast in Charlottenburg is, of course, in true style with a French butter croissant , a glass of champagne and a café au lait - why not from one of our district cups from the Colors of Berlin edition?
