  • It is lined with luxury department stores. Located on the restaurant is in a hotel-like atmosphere. Toy corner is very impressive and was perfect for children to walk. Japan-language pamphlets can be so helpful.

  • Fabulous selection of everything and anything. I could have spent all day in this store. The food hall was the best ever. The iced apple cake in the buffet restaurant was delicious. Well worth a visit 
  • The KaDeWe department store is probably the best known department store of in Germany. 60,000 square meters, it is also the largest German Department store. In addition to various ways to facilitate his wallet for luxury goods, particularly the gourmet Department on the 6 floor is an attraction. Here are over 500 employees of busy for the customers and visitors epicurean delights to produce about 100 chefs and serve. The cheese Department alone has over 1,000 cheeses on offer; the wine Department over 3,000 different wines. On average, each visitor in the KaDeWe spends 4 hours - so you should allow enough time for a visit. Have fun shopping!

  • With a multitude of departments in every nook and cranny of the mutli-level building, KaDeWe begs a leisurely shopping visit. There is just too much excellent merchandise you might miss with a brisk run-through. Perfect for a rainy day in Berlin. On the day I visited, people were sampling fine whiskey and champagne, so don't expect your typical mall food court here. Bring a credit card with ample available balance.
  • Set in a beautiful old building in Berlin the Ka De We is a wonderful shopping experience even if you are only window shopping. A huge department store that is said to be the largest one in Europe, the Ka De We is floor after floor of exquisite shopping topped off with the crowing glory on the top floor which is the food, beverage and dining area. I always head straight for the top floor and visit the different champagne house bars for a glass of their finest. The only negative of the building is how hard it is a find an ATM which after a long quest I discovered one on the top floor, right in one corner.
  • Quality brands with good customer service and a food world on the top floor with free 2-hour wifi and an amazing food selection! More expensive than usual but it's delicious and worth taking your friends who are visiting the city.
  • My favorite shopping mall in Berlin is big with all brands I like. But for sure go to the food department they have high quality food and service
  • A great stop for tourists, awesome selection of products, got almost anything from purses to and tuxedos to lobster and chesses, btw the variety of cheese is the biggest I've ever seen, it is of course around 10x more expensive than the local supermarket but a nice place to try new things.
