A place you can sit, chill, drink a good cup of coffee ( not a cup, a big mug ) and eat a good desert. The prices are affordable ( a coffee is 3,2 e ) and you have an hour free wi-fi. The staff...More

We stopped to warm up while walking around the city. The coffee was delicious, much better than Starbucks. Their selection of pastries was good and tasted homemade. Would recommend for a quick pick me up.

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
