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.

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.

  • Wow this place is huge, reportedly the 2nd largest department store behind Harrods of London. It carries mostly higher end brands and items, but it was super fun seeing what 600€ athletic shoes looked...  more »
  • KaDeWe is a giant department store I’ve shopped at each time I've visited Berlin since 1977. The best two floors to visit are the food floor (6th) and toy floor (5th). You can eat a reasonably priced ...  more »

  • I only ever head for the food floor when I'm here. Whether you want white sausage, local potato dishes for breakfast, fish or coffee or cake. Everything is catered for. It's a little pricey but the food and service are excellent. Recently discovered the cheese counters and the Moët bar much to the regret of my wallet. But amazing afternoon. I keep coming back...
  • Excellent shopping experience for all your shopping needs. The big food hall on the upper levels are also a great experience well worth checking out. Fresh meals can be prepared and ample dessert options are available
  • Floor 6 is every foodies heaven! If you are a foodie expect to spend a decent 2-3 hours here. Not too expensive considering whats on offer, definatly worth a visit. The other floors are also very nice, many lucrative brands at fair prices all around.
  • Some might say it's just a fancy department store, and it is, but it's also a place where you can find most everything. The 5th floor has some of the best selection of food you will find anywhere on earth - including the huge chocolate section. It's worth the visit, and to spend an hour or two.
  • Ok, shopping place as many other, with some famous brands. Good place to shop these, but apart from that nothing special. Dedicated sneakers area is not special at all- regular models that can be found everywhere.
