Europa-Center, Berlin

(2.4/5 based on 150+ 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. 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.

  • Eating, drinking, shopping or simply foraging stroll - the Europa-Center actually offers something for everyone. Quite funny is the water clock inside the metre-high (hint: it does really something toggles the time 12:59 and 23:59 on 13:00 or 1:00). Nobody must starve in the food supply here Jedefalls, and you also can buy a until the magnetic stripe of the card is overheating... Of the Europa-Center is one directly to the Ku-Damm, the Kaiser-Wilhelm Memorial Church, the KaDeWe and the Zoological Garden/Aquarium, so in the heart (of the old West) Berlin.

  • Quiet shop-and restaurant/Pub-Centre. Worth to see is the large water clock by hour shift. Impressive technique. Good Irish-pub on the ground floor with live music in the evening. Worth to see is a visit to the Japanese restaurant in the 2. floor

  • Between Zoo and Memorial Church is a "Mall", whose charm historically elegant map, most interesting I find the "clock of flowing time", if I wanted to shop, I don't know whether it is the first address

  • The design of this place is incredible. Near Jetsons-Style, but one that I can not imagine looking outdated for a VERY very long time. This place is incredible, and the Berlin Wall is directly outside it. Worth the visit.
  • Cheap version of a mall.. the only thing making this worth 2 stars is the restaurant at the water inside. It looked really cozy. But the smell of the chlorine filled water was less nice.
  • An old indoor mall, nothing super special, some nice stores and a few restaurants. If youre shopping near by its worth checking out but not just going for it alone
  • An old and outdated shopping area. Considering its location so close to the KaDeWe you would think it was a nicer space. There are a lot of stores here but it dosent come across as somewhere I want to spend anytime. It is a good short cut though :)
  • A nice shopping mall in the city center of Berlin surrounded by all kind of shops around in the street. Th Europa Center has a large Saturn (electronic devices shop) located on all 5 floors. The place is also known for its clock inside the mall.
