The first steps of your travels should be at the U-Bahn, the railway station just a 10-minute walk away from your residence. Navigating the city is a cinch.
Then, head to Alexanderplatz where you can find a cattle market that has turned into a public square and transport hub. To really blend in with the locals, call it by its colloquial name: “Alex.” Hard to miss here is the soaring 365-metre Fernsehturm, or TV Tower. Clad in an eye-catching red, the Alexa shopping mall is where you can be your true self, be it a shopping aficionado or film connoisseur.
Then, get your mandatory fix of sightseeing. Charlottenburg Palace is a treasured inheritance. Regarded as the most beautiful royal palace, it was erected as the summer residence of Sophia Charlotte, the first queen of Prussia.
Just near your residence is the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church. Damaged in physical state but not in spirit, the church today stands a powerful symbol of peace and reconciliation.
As day segues into night, enjoy an evening out at the Schaubühne, whose body of productions includes Shakespeare’s Hamlet and Richard III. Or, traverse to the East Side Gallery over at the Mühlenstrasse. The eastern side of the great Berlin wall is adorned with 105 paintings that tell a compelling story of freedom and change.
After a long day, your comfortable bed courtesy of Citadines Kurfürstendamm Berlin awaits you.
