Kurfürstendamm, a simple road in the 16th century has grown to become a 3.5-kilometre stretch of luxury shops and designer boutiques, art galleries, cafés, restaurants, theatres and cinemas. Close to the property, visit the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, the symbolic centre of West Berlin, then enjoy an evening out at the Schaubühne, one of the city's most famous theatres, situated just next to your serviced apartments. As you stroll around the German capital, you'll want to take in its famous landmarks, such as the town hall at the Alexander Platz (the Rotes Rathaus), the Reichstag and the Charlottenburg Palace, and of course Checkpoint Charlie. Don't miss the East Side Gallery on the Mühlenstrasse: a fragment of the Berlin Wall covered in paintings which is an international monument to freedom. With its 60,000m2 of floor space and 7 floors, the Kaufhaus des Westens (or KaDeWe) is a paradise for shopping fans.
