  • Have visited KaDewe on a number of occasions and I have to say that the food never fails to impress me. I can't say I am interested in the rest of the shop but the food court on the 6th floor is a mus...  more »
  • Wonderful atmosphere to browse all the delicacies and restaurants. Stopped at the Oyster Bar was lovely o so good. There were many different kinds to choose from. Charming to see the chef stand and open these little delicacies, all the time. o as with a good glass of mussserande so it could not be better.

  • KaDeWe is suitable not only for shopping, but also to the very good food. I personally prefer floor with buffet the 6th floor with the little "stands" the 7th, because there are lots of choice of very good high-class dishes at reasonable prices.

  • 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.
