The districts of Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf lie in the middle of the metropolitan hustle and bustle. Whereas the quiet and green Westend, which belongs to Charlottenburg, is a quiet and green area with stately villas, distinguished residential buildings and elegant green spaces, named after the distinguished London district of West End. The immediate proximity to the recreation and nature reserve Forst Grunewald and the district of the same name, known as the most expensive residential area in Berlin, make the outskirts of Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf particularly popular as a residential location.
Vibrant streets, such as Kurfürstendamm, and popular squares form the core of the district and attract the attention of international clients.
