Europa-Center, Berlin
(2.4/5 based on 140+ 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.

  • Visited the Xmas markets in Berlin. The Europa centre is a must go to place, plenty of shops and the water click in the centre is fascinating. 
  • In General, a shopping centre which many, but in the middle of the water clock has an interesting and nice lamps visible on the picture. Before Christmas on the ground floor there is an attraction for children. This year there were huts with moving skrzatami and talking tree.

  • The first "Mall" of Berlin (1962), close to several shops, bustling boulevards, historical records (Cathedral with the Tower bombed). Near the Berlin Zoo, aquarium, Tiergarten, etc. It is worth to stop at one of the restaurants and eating a duck with cabbage.

  • 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 Near Jetsons-Style, but one that I can not imagine looking outdated for a VERY very long time.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  • An old and outdated shopping area.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.
