The Berlin Campus Charlottenburg is an area in Berlin with 650 hectares in the central part of the city. It includes parts of Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf, Tempelhof-Schöneberg and Mitte. Diverse options for retail, services and recreation make Berlin Campus Charlottenburg an attractive location to live and work.
The Technische Universität Berlin and the Universität der Künste have a rich tradition in Berlin, and specifically in Berlin’s West. The universities founded the "Campus Charlottenburg" initiative in 2010 to intensify cooperation and use of synergy.
Another joint initiative is the formation of the association, Hybrid Platform, a network promoting transdisciplinary projects. Prestigious research institutions are located nearby, among them the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (National Metrology Institute of Germany) and four Fraunhofer Institutes.
The Berlin Campus Charlottenburg’s central symbol is Ernst-Reuter-Platz, which is characterized by its post-WWII architecture. International companies have located subsidiaries close to research and development, and the connections of art, science, business, technology and communications characterize the area. The Charlottenburger Innovationszentrum für Gründer (CHIC), an incubator, offers an ideal climate for new companies.
In recent years, Kantstraße has become a location for design and creativity. The connection between Breitscheidplatz and the trade show site Messe Berlin is a major axis in Berlin. Kantstraße’s character changes, as do the uses on the street, as the street continues. In particular the eastern segment at Savignyplatz, near Kurfürstendamm, has great potential for creativity and leisure.
The Berlin Campus Charlottenburg includes two of Berlin’s most famous boulevards, Kurfürstendamm and Tauentzienstraße, and is valued as a location for retail and service. In the Tempelhof-Schöneberg district, Kleist- and Bülowstraße continue this trend. The area’s feel changes here and the area boasts a higher level of hotels and tourists. This increases the area’s potential for urban development renovation and for new companies.
