  • Around the month of december is Berlin in any case a must. All of Berlin is then transformed with thousands of lights and great window displays. The KaDeWe is no exception. The shop Windows are super creative, festive and cool. Inside are all kinds of luxury items to find bag to case and from clothes to toys. Quite fun to look around. On the top floor you will find many small restaurants and luxury drink and food.

  • For the new year here on each floor stand tree quite nicely all decorated and the 3 floor sitting Santa Claus. Speaks all languages, listens to the child, pulls out a bag with gifts (sweets), promises that will bring a gift on new year's Eve. My son was very pleased! Large department store itself and here presented clothing, toys, kitchen utensils, shoes and all that usually eat in department stores. All brands. A selection of great. We now live in Spain. This is very similar to our department store El Corte Ingles.

  • The world's most important luxury brands are available. Very clean, well structured department store. Top qualified, friendly and courteous staff. Very good product range. The gourmet floor (6th floor) is a dream for every bon vivants. Tip: the Praline selection and the Veuve Clicquot bar.

  • 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.
