Berlin Flat No 7

The accommodation is well located close to many shopping malls, supermarkets, health food markets, a bakery, a newspaper stand and a post office which also offers banking services.

There are also various entertainment options within walking distance of the vacation rental. The Baghwanddisco “Far Out” is located around the corner on Kurfürstendamm. Next door to that you will find “Die Schaubühne”, a theatre dating back to the 1970s. On the corner of Kurfürstendamm and Albrecht-Achilles-Straße there is also a bowling centre.

Kurfürstendamm is famous for its shopping possibilities particularly the Europa Centre and KaDeWe. The Europa Centre located on the Breitscheidplatz contains the beautiful Lotus Fountain designed by Parisian artists Bernard and Francois Baschet and the interesting “Clock of Flowing Time” which shows the time by a means of coloured water flowing through a system of connected tubes. KaDeWe is Europe’s second largest department store after Harrods and attracts between 40 to 50 thousand visitors a day.

Also in Breitscheidplatz along Kurfürstendamm you can see the Kaiser-Wilhelm Gedächtniskirche (Memorial Church) with the ruined spire of the old church rising up in the middle. The bottom part of this spire, which was damaged by bombs in the war, has been converted into a memorial hall.

Berlin Zoologischer Garten and Aquarium are located not far from Kurfürstendamm. Here you will find a vast variety of animals in enclosures that resemble their natural habitats. Watch the pandas being fed, be amused by the antics of the monkeys, admire the graceful swimming penguins, stroke the animals in the petting zoo and walk among the birds in the aviary.

For those who like to picnic in a park, row a boat on a lake or walk through trees and nature, a visit to the Tiergarten is a must. The 210 hectares provide hours of fun with cafes, lakes and grassy areas. And right in the middle you will find the Siegessäule with the beautiful golden statue of Victoria.

Visiting other areas of Berlin is easy with the use of the public transport systems. With so much to see in Berlin it is well worth your time deciding in advance which things would interest you most.

History is obviously an important topic for a town such as Berlin and for those interested in learning more about the unusual past of this great city there are many museums, memorials and buildings that are worth visiting. The Holocaust Memorial with the information centre below provides a reminder of the suffering experienced by Jews and other people groups under Nazi regime. Checkpoint Charlie and the museum nearby provides extensive information about divided Germany and the escapes (both successful and not) of Eastern Berliners to the West. In the Stasi-Museum offers an insight into the political system of former Eastern Germany including the different surveillance technology used in this era.

Those interested in art should visit the various art galleries and museums on Museumsinsel such as the Alte Nationalgalerie (Old National Gallery) and the Pergamon Museum. The graffiti and paintings along the old Berlin Wall at the East Side Gallery are also of great artistic interest. There are also many interesting buildings from an architectural point of view such as the Reichstag Building, Potsdamer Platz with the Sony Center, the Hackesche Höfe, Television Tower and the various churches and cathedrals.
