Nice place to walk around, it has a vintage vibe to it and has a nice view from the deck. You can see the tv Tower and the building where Angela Merkel’s office is!

The cafe is at teh back of the theatre, looking at the River Spree. We stopped for lunch and had very reasonable price and good quality drinks and sandwiches, with lots of choice. Service was friendly and quick. Highly recommended.

Very impressive venue, it is somewhat remoniscent of post-utopian architecture and style. Located in the centre of Tiergarten, it makes a very charismatic location in park surroundings. Usually hosts exhibitions, conferences, Berlinale screenings.

Nice building, not sure if you can visit it as we were there quite in the morning. Looks nice and the surrounding park is also nice for a walk.

Originally West berlin's Culture Forum, locals still nickname it 'the Pregnant Oyster' or 'Jimmy Carter's Smile'. It's a bit of a hike from Bundestag U-bahn station (U55) and at the moment it's being rennovated so you might not be able to get inside it.

Charlottenburg
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
