Kaufhaus des Westens, the largest department store in the world, houses eight floors of merchandise. The elegant building was erected in 1905. Peruse dozens of high-end brands at the aptly named Luxury Boulevard on the ground floor. Then, head upstairs to check out state-of-the-art electronics and home decor. Don't miss having lunch in the glass-enclosed winter garden restaurant. It's on the top floor and overlooks the famous Wittenbergplatz.

  • My husband and I visited KeDeWe last week. Well worth a visit if not for the delights that meet the eyes but for the scrumptious food and drink that tickle your tastebuds on the 6th and 7th floor. As ...  read more »
  • Outside a beautiful building, it comes in one has the feeling is it in an other world. All very wealthy dressed, you will feel very insecure. But all very nice decorated and furnished.

  • This place might be the only upscale department shopping centre in Berlin and one of few in Germany. A very crowded place with all the big international brands you know plus some local ones. But unlike leading department stores in London, Paris or New York, you will not find exclusive products from some brands here. Prices are what you'd expect from brand name fashion, but from time to time they make sales which are quite good compared to other places and the quality of the stuff you are getting. They last floor has a restaurant which is quite like an open buffet but you pay for each product you chose. Nice and healthy food but over priced and the sitting area is so simple and has no views. The floor before the last is the chocolate and sweet floor, wine and drinks and small independent restaurants etc.
  • Shopping here is an experience, and there's delicious (yet not too pricey) buffet on the top floor. Additionally, nearby U-Bahn station is a nice communication point with many busses and 3 U-Bahn lines.
  • The Kadewe is amazing, I could spend the whole day on the 6th floor where you can find the best food from all over the world. The bouillabaisse is a must try with a very interesting take on this traditional dish from Marseille
  • My favourite Department Store in Germany. Love to be here and enjoy this special and extraordinary ambiente with all it's extravagance!!! least when you are in Berlin you have to be here once!!!
  • This is probably the biggest department store in Germany, with history and architecture as grand as its selection. It feels more like a small mall or maybe Fortnum and Mason to me. It has an unusual selection of high and low end goods, but also lots of food offerings. It doesn't seem like a place your everyday middle class shopper would go to frequently.
