Exploring Berlin’s City West on foot

The aletto Hotel Kudamm is located right in the heart of Berlin’s western city centre. Far away from the loud clubbing and hipster scenes, the old and beautiful Charlottenburg is best explored on a long walk. 


A shopping tour

If you are planning a big shopping trip, you’ll find everything you need on Ku’damm. Following the street further down, where its name changes to Tauentzienstraße, you will come across the famous Kaufhaus des Westens, which is worth a visit, even if it’s just to window-shop.

If you prefer to shop in a more relaxed atmosphere, then Bikini Berlin is the right place for you. Enjoy a drink or a bite to eat on the roof terrace as you take in the beautiful view of the zoo – the monkey enclosure in particular will make you forget the hustle of the big city.

But while you’re staying near Ku’damm, there is definitely plenty more besides shopping to enjoy.


Art and entertainment

C/O Berlin in the Amerikahaus is a must-see for everyone who is into photography, and it’s right next to the aletto Hotel. Contemporary photographers and new talents are presented here with their latest projects. And the official Museum of Photography with the famous Helmut Newton Foundation is just a few minutes away.

More culture awaits you literally just around the corner. The Theater des Westens and the Vaganten Bühne both always offer good entertainment for the evening. Right next to these buildings is the movie theatre Delphi Filmpalast, which mainly shows independent films. If you prefer big blockbusters, head to the Zoo Palast, which is just 5 minutes away from the aletto Hotel and has a unique historical ambience.


Wining and dining

Restaurants and cafes are everywhere nearby, but if you are looking for fine food, you should visit Savignyplatz. Not only does it have a beautiful park where you can relax, but it is also filled with a variety of restaurants and bars with lots of atmosphere.


A walk through the park

Even the most obvious thing should be mentioned here of course – the zoo! Those who aren’t interested in animals or paying for admission can stroll around the Landwehr canal next to the Tiergarten. If you are looking for nature and some peaceful moments, this is the place for you.

So don’t buy a tram or U-Bahn ticket this time. Put on your most comfortable shoes instead and go out to explore, stroll about and relax. All around the aletto Hotel Kudamm!
