The Kulturforum has a number of exhibition area within the building and you get a ticket that covers you for the whole place, but we found out that doing one exhibition properly was enough for a day. The restaurant was good with a small selection...More

Purpose-built culture centre in West Berlin, built I'd Say as a counterpoint to the Museum Island in East Berlin! The best part of the Forum is the Philharmonia and the Gemäldegalerie.

We only walked the area so did not go inside any of the buildings. From the outside it did not. Do it for me. We abandoned and went to a bar inside the nearby Sony centre.

Huge building just nearby other cultural building (concert hall, library, museum) and close to Neue Nationalgalerie by Mies van der Rohe (under construction now) houses old masters of highest level. Great bookshop inside, cafe. Close to Potsdamer Platz and Tiergarten park.

Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through
the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which
lends its name to this well-heeled neighbourhood.
Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city:
upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades
and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone
streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through
little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop
