Condominiums near Kurfürstendamm
Uhlandpalais is located on Uhlandstrasse, one of the side streets of Kurfürstendamm. An urban ambience and vibrant bustle set the scene along the famous promenade and high-street of West Berlin, which runs from Rathenauplatz in Grunewald all the way to Breitscheidplatz, site of the Memorial Church. The avenue in the heartland of the “City West” sub-district is lined with countless cafés, restaurants, roughly 250 stores and shopping arcades. Tourists, local residents and people working here love strolling down the boulevard, a veritable stage for international brands and posh fashion and jewellery boutiques.
No matter which way you turn as you leave Uhlandpalais, you will invariably feel the typical flair of West Berlin with its classy period buildings, traditional and foreign restaurants and cultural venues, including up-scale galleries and cinemas known for film premières.
The ease with which tradition and modernity mingle here is visible even in the immediate vicinity of Uhlandstrasse. Across from Uhlandpalais, at the site of the former Kudamm-Karree mall, a modern and innovative complex called Fürst is under development that will provide flexibly configurable co-working spaces, stores, a museum, a hotel, a gym as well as restaurants and a preschool. The concept of mixing types of use reflects the current needs of urban life, but all of it on an up-market level. Buying a condominium on Uhlandstrasse will make you a part of this urban community in the heart of Berlin.
The French cultural centre Maison de France at the corner of Uhlandstrasse and Kurfürstendamm has withstood the test of time since it was founded in the 1950s, offering French language classes, French art films as well as plays and dance to this day. On Fasanenstrasse one block over, culture and art are cultivated in their rich diversity. Local galleries regularly host guided tours and openings, while the well-established House of Literature with its integrated book store and restaurant in the conservatory organises readings, shows and film screenings. The garden of Literaturhaus is a special retreat from the bustling boulevard nearby, especially in the summertime when it turns into an outdoor café.

Charlottenburg is a vibrant district with a lot of green areas and places for taking time out. Many of the streets are lined with old-growth trees as well as with cosy cafés and boutique stores that lend a pleasant neighbourhood charm to each quarter.
A few minutes of walking will take you from Uhlandpalais to the nearest underground station right on Kurfürstendamm while rapid transit trains and long-distance service connections are available from the nearby “Zoo” station. Also within walking distance are bus stops served by a number of bus lines. A car ride of roughly ten minutes will take you to the nearest expressway entrance.
The part of Charlottenburg in which Uhlandpalais is embedded smoothly blends a cosmopolitan flair with the kind of local structures that encourages communal interaction.
