Charlottenburg and Wilmersdorf, in the west of Berlin, boast the charms of classical neighbourhoods. They are well served with restaurants from all over the world, and shopping areas that range from the big retails of Zoologischer Garten station to the luxury stores of the Kurfurstendamm. Many companies have established their headquarters there since the beginning of the 20th century, and the neighbourhoods have kept their reputation in Berlin.
And what is so special about these areas? Greeneries! The biggest zoo of Berlin is located in Charlottenburg, adjacent to the beautiful park of Tiergarten. Sandy alleyways and entire forests offer a quiet respite from the bustling city, while at the other end stands the monumental Brandeburg Gate. Wilmersdorf, further south, offers high quality residential living at affordable prices. It is also there that all the students of Berlin converge to attend the famous Technical University and Universität der Künste, creating a very mixed demand for housing.
Final bonus: one can hop on the S-bahn trains and arrive to the many lakes and forest at the west of Berlin, in the Grünewald, which are truly marvellous at any season. Skating on frozen lakes in the winter, breathing the fresh smells of spring, bathing in green waters in summer, and admiring the gradients of the trees in the fall.
