Europa-Center, Berlin

#12 of 74 in Shopping in Berlin
Shopping Mall Shopping
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. Take a look at our Berlin vacation builder to schedule your visit to Europa-Center and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • This mall is a time machine to the 1980s. It's truly great if you enjoy going back in time. There is a nice food court and the electronics store Saturn is attached. There is also a great swimming pool/spa called Thermen in the same complex.
  • A lot of stores, but the best one is the huge Saturn in there. It is 5 floors big and you will find a great variety of electronics there. I love this store!
  • Very nice place to hang out. A lot of different shops and restaurants to spend time either shopping or grabbing something to eat.
  • I remember the water clock in there. I was very impressed! But this is all that I can say about this mall.
  • Great presentation on the EU. Plenty of information and interactive bits all available in a wide selection of languages.

Where to stay in Berlin

The Kreuzberg neighborhood near the Oberbaumbrüke bridge is central and full of Berlin icons: street art, a piece of the Berlin Wall, the East Side Gallery, and a proliferation of cafes. Friedrichshain is another option with a hip vibe due to the students who congregate at its cafes and galleries. Consider Mitte as a historic home base. Mitte is the area where almost all of Berlin's well-known buildings are located, and it is within walking distance of Alexanderplatz. For a peaceful residential area, try Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf where the streets are lined with boutiques and quiet coffee shops.
