Cosmopolitan elegance

Leibnizstrasse No. 58 is part of the prettiest, still preserved late 19th century district of Berlin. The attractive mix of boutiques, galleries and restaurants offers a high quality of living.

Located in a side street off Kurfürstendamm, the property combines the best of both worlds. The historical boulevard, one of Europe’s most charming and elegant streets, is home to countless luxury brands and noteworthy companies.

In the adjoining quarter between the Leibniz, Kant and Fasanenstrasse, however, there is a distinct feeling of an evolved way of life. Local residents meet for lunch in the many long-established restaurants, renowned art galleries host their opening exhibitions and small shops stock essential everyday items.

Paris Bar

This is the bar where Martin Kippenberger used to pay his tab with artworks, where Otto Sander used to sit nursing a beer every evening and where Rolf Eden still eats the legendary entrecôte once a week. Actors, artists and intellectuals have been flocking to the Paris Bar ever since the 1970s.

Camera Work

Standing in front of the old ivy-covered workshop building, you would never know that an art gallery of world renown lies beyond its old walls. The exhibitions shown by the Camera Work photo gallery range from classics of the 20th century to contemporary photography.

Walter-Benjamin-Platz

This real urban gem is just a few metres away from Kurfürstendamm: Walter-Benjamin-Platz, with its austere classicist architecture and the surrounding colonnades is reminiscent of the grand squares of southern European metropolises – a perfect place to sit and watch the world go by.

MetaDesign

The historic substation towers like a modern brick cathedral on the corner of Leibnizstrasse. Where electricity was once generated for Charlottenburg, creative energies were set free twenty years ago: the building is now the headquarters of the international brand agency MetaDesign.

What do you fancy love?

What do you fancy love? is concealed behind a nondescript entrance on Knesebeckstrasse, right between Savignyplatz and Kurfürstendamm. The cosy café has been serving up freshly prepared bagels and cake as well as quite possibly the best juices in town since 2012.

Bücherbogen am Savignyplatz

Once you’ve crossed the threshold of the bookstore Bücherbogen am Savignyplatz, you won’t want to leave in a hurry. While the S-Bahn trains rattle away overhead, there’s nothing better than browsing the fantastic selection of beautiful publications about architecture, design, fine art, graphic design, photos, dance, film, stage and fashion.

Kurfürstendamm

Kurfürstendamm, affectionately known as Ku’damm by the locals, is the heart of the City West and Berlin’s grandest boulevard. Every day thousands of tourists and shoppers stroll along its broad tree-lined streets, browsing luxury boutiques like Bottega Veneta, Jil Sander, Yves Saint Laurent and the legendary department store KaDeWe.

Grisebach

The Grisebach auction house is one of the most renowned locations for classic and modern art auctions in Germany. Since it was founded in 1986 the institution has been housed in a magnificent city villa, built by the architect Hans Grisebach for his own use between 1891 and 1892.
