Charlottenburg

Charlottenburg is one of the most sought after districts of Berlin and has been shaped over the centuries by Prussian nobility. It is synonymous with the best addresses in the city; a sophisticated way of life and a touch of royal charm.

Tiergarten

No. 1 Charlottenburg is a 3 minute walk from the bucolic Tiergarten park. This picturesque environment provides an ideal setting for long walks and leisurely drinks at the Café am Neuen See.

Königliche Porzellan-Manufaktur Berlin

No.1 Charlottenburg is intrinsically linked with the history of the Königliche Porzellan-Manufaktur Berlin (Royal Porcelain Manufactory Berlin, or KPM). For over 250 years, the world famous and entirely hand-made "white gold" has been made under the sign of the cobalt-blue sceptre.
In the mid-18th century the Prussian King Friedrich II enthusiastically agreed to merchant Wilhelm Caspar Wegely’s proposal to set up a porcelain factory in Berlin. In 1873 KPM moved to Charlottenburg, including the land now occupied by No.1 Charlottenburg. KPM’s reputation for luxury and enduring quality, so intrinsic to the porcelain, is mirrored in the new residential district.
The mix of red and yellow bricks in the construction of the new KPM was unusually ornamental for an industrial building, and the very use of bricks for a non-ecclesiastical building was considered contemporary for its time.
KPM continued its relationship with royalty through occasions such as the building of greenhouses for Kaiser Wilhelm I and his grandson. Through its history, the Wegleystraße address has carried a prestige that is reflected by No.1 Charlottenburg, with an emphasis on quality and reference to the location’s heritage.
