Ich bin ein Berliner

Where

Located a stone’s throw away from the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, the Waldorf Astoria rises high above the rejuvenated Berlin skyline.

If you are an animal lover then the Zoological Garden is close by whilst the major Kurfürstendamm Boulevard is just a short stroll away. Here you will find an array of chic designer stores as fashionable as the roaring 20’s in the German capital.

With its central position in district of Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf, you will be able to enjoy the popular Theater des Westens and the renowned Hadenbergplatz Square. Both the Brandenburg Gate and the historical Checkpoint Charlie are nearby.

Tell me about it

This 232 room venue blends together the elegant past with several modern features. The interiors are as lavish as some of the dresses worn by the Berliner Damen of old with a host of Art Deco touches.

Meanwhile, the elegant rooms ooze sophistication thanks to a number of different ornate furnishings such as a chaise longue that will transport you to a bygone era.

For extra comfort, check out one of the 12 King Tower Suites between the 22nd and 29th floors. With access to a private lift, exclusivity doesn’t get better than this.

You can take advantage of stunning panoramic floor to ceiling windows boasting impressive views of the Berlin cityscape.

Other highlights include decadent marble bathrooms with plasmas, underfloor heating not to mention a dedicated living and dining space.

You can also enjoy a bouquet of flowers, complimentary bottled water, private bar and 2 over-sized plasmas installed with the latest Apple TV technology.

Hungry for more

Elegant, timeless and enduring are what sums up Les Solistes by Pierre Gagnaire where you can tuck into a wealth of classic French cuisine that will have you singing La Marseillaise. Stunning artwork and opulent materials finish off a sublime culinary adventure.

Lang Bar

The Lang Bar is the place to step back in time thanks to its exquisite 1920’s inspired design where you can sip away on sublime cocktails and a wealth of artisan beers.

Named after former Berliner and ground breaking filmmaker Fritz Lang, famous for his classic film Metropolis, you can really taste history at first hand.

The Waldorf Astoria revives the age old café tradition at the historic Romanisches Café. This coffee culture was popular in the 1900s and is a look back in time where philosophers, writers and poets would come to ponder and debate. Now you will find a selection of delicate pastries, meat and cheese platters, cakes and other delights that will provide a genuine slice of history.

Indulge

Treat yourself inside Germany’s only Guerlain Spa. It provides a host of revitalising treatments and therapies for the body and face or you can simply relax by the indoor pool with your Kindle.

By the way

You can enjoy afternoon tea in the imperious Peacock Alley where you might spot the famous Grandfather Clock specially constructed for this site.

Time is definitely on your side.
