Attractions in Charlottenburg
As the largest and oldest palace in Berlin, Charlottenburg Palace is a must-see for anybody planning an extended stay in Charlottenburg. Known as one of the top attractions in Berlin, the palace has been restored and reconstructed to enable visitors from all over the world to visit.
Established in 1987, this museum was designed to educate and inform its visitors on the history and culture of the Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf borough. The museum is the perfect place to learn about the city’s rich history, and the child-friendly exhibitions enable the whole family to have a great day out.
Originally a spectacular church, and now a war memorial, this church is one of the top attractions near Charlottenburg for anybody interested in the city’s history. The church was bombed in 1943, leaving only one tower behind. However, the memorial has been developed with historic photographs of what the church once was – enabling visitors to imagine the way it used to be.
For animal lovers, the Berlin Zoo is a must-visit. The zoo holds awards for being the oldest, most species-rich and most popular Animal Park in Germany, and so an excellent day out is guaranteed. As well as plenty of animal enclosures to explore, the zoo offers daily feeding sessions, informational talks and much more.
Photography lovers, look no further. C/O Berlin is a highly regarded, not-for-profit exhibition centre for photography. A reasonably modern exhibition, founded in 2000, the centre showcases photography from great names such as Annie Leibovitz, Nan Goldin and Anton Corbijn.
