Kiez Westend in Charlottenburg – Recreation, Sports and Entertainment
Westend, a part of Charlottenburg is located only a stone's throw from Spandau. The main shopping street of Westend is Reichstraße between Theodor-Heuss-Platz and Steubenplatz. You can also find the TV center of Rundfunk Berlin-Brandenburg (RBB) here, as well as Dieter Hallervorden’s comedy revue „Die Wühlmäuse“.
Two U-Bahn stations from here is the legendary Olympic stadium. Completed for the 1936 Olympic Games, today Hertha BSC regularly holds its home games there. But even without a game to watch, you can drink a beer on the stadium terrace. From the stadium it’s only a few minutes to the Waldbühne. It is supposedly one of the most beautiful open-air stages in Europe and seats 22,000 visitors. From May to September, this is a popular venue for rock, pop and classical concerts.
And museum aficionados come into their own as well. There is a lot to discover in the U-Bahn museum at the U-Bahn station Olympiastadion!
