2.4/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web
An icon of West Berlin, the site where Europa-Center was erected was once the Romanisches Café, a gathering place for writers, artists, and theater personalities. The building lay in ruins after being bombed during World War II. The site then was used as an open space for circus troupes and even a cinema. The shopping center you'll visit there nowadays was built in the 1960s and includes more than 100 shops. The complex is large enough to house a hotel, apartment building, and a number of restaurants. Keep your eyes peeled for works of art that dot the premises, such as the Buddy Bear sculptures that depict colorful bears standing on their hind legs.

  • Located in the heart of Berlin, Europa center has a wide variety of shops and restaurants to choose from. Everything form the bus station to the zoo, from good pubs to shopping experiences is right nearby. The only problem was with the info desk. We asked the lady some questions where things were (our hotel which is attached to the building, (Swissotel) and one of the stores) and she didn't have an answer. I'm thinking maybe she didn't understand us well. For a center like that, they need to have a multilingual speaker.
  • Very spacious Shopping-Centre, hosting a broad variety of shops. Contained are (but not limited to) Saturn (Tech Shop), various Gift Shops, some Restaurants (sadly no supermarket or chance for a cheap drink or quick snack- there is a KFC though.). There is also a very interestingly designed clock ("Die Uhr der fliessenden Zeit) and other design features. All in all a great place for a quick shop, given you can find a map to locate your choice of shops.
  • Has a few Pokéstops, including o e especially terrifying one at a statue of a bear with the flesh of a man wearing a soccer outfit. The mall itself is OK. I haven't found much interest in the shops, I usually end up walking through it after I leave the attached Saturn electronics store. Food is bad inside I think.
  • Well designed wall with free Wi-Fi. Lots of stores with everything you need.
  • Aged mall with dark colors and a crazy art object in the middle. It is peaceful and quiet. So if you have enough of the loud Tauentzien and Kurfürstendamm, go there and enjoy an ice-cream cone or stroll through one big awesome Saturn. +1
