KDW is probably the department store in Berlin. My wife and I always enjoy visiting department stores in different countries. This store gives insight into what is available in Germany. From an entire floor of food items both fresh and packaged you can also have many foods prepared their in mini restaurants. Everything from housewares,, clothing and anything else you... More

This is a department store with several floors and it is just incredible. Within this shoppers paradise (and that is NOT me) there aren't just clothing and jewelry etc, but foods of all types, including cheeses, olives, chocolate, cigars, wines, coffee, it just goes on and on! You can sit at a counter/bar have some wine and try cheese samples... More

OK it is just a department store but then so is Harrods. We felt that whilst Harrods wanders into the excessive with too much of a nod to Football WAGS requirements, KaDeWe was more focussed on selling quality which whilst pricey justified that because they were providing a good range of high quality options. We found a wide range of... More

I popped by the Kaufhaus des Westens (KaDeWe) because I read that it was the largest department store in Continental Europe. I guess I was expecting something special, but it turned out to be just another high-end department store. If you're in the area, pay it a visit. Otherwise, skip it...unless you want to do some hardcore shopping.

There is so much to see in this maze of a department store. The food floor with its cheese counter, chocolate shop and alcohol section with hundreds of varieties was my heaven.

A lot of famous and expensive brand but it was nice even though just a bit window shopping. It look like a huge duty free shop. They have quite nice selection of everything. The gourmet and pastry at upper floor seems very nice and also bit pricey.

well worth the train ride to Ka De We. Apart from the standard floors of department store shopping, go to the 5th and 6th floors for the most glorious food. This is a food court like no other we have been to. Great range of food , but also a variety of square bars where u can eat and drink... More

KaDeWe is one of my favorite things to do in Berlin! It has 8 floors of amazing shopping and dining - but the dining is the real star of the KaDeWe. There are all kinds of champagne that can be tasted - you can even sample some of the top bottles for a reasonable cost. Gourmet salts and spices are... More

Staying in Schoneberg

Neighborhood Profile
Schoneberg
In 1963, Schöneberg was the center of the political west, inspiring John F. Kennedy to choose this area to famously announce, "Ich bin ein Berliner." Times may have changed, but modern-day Schöneberg still pays tribute to its historical legacies. Once the richest city outside of Berlin proper, the area's affluent past is still visible in ornate housing facades dating back to the Gründerzeit of the 19th century, while residents in fur coats walking their dogs or shopping in high-end KaDeWe continue the tradition with a modern flair. Schöneberg was also once the center of the decadent and burlesque nightlife of the 1920s. It was here that Marlene Dietrich partied with Christopher Isherwood and the first gay bar in Germany was founded. Today, the gay community still revolves around Nollendorfplatz. The overground Ubahn station is even illuminated in rainbow colors, paying tribute to Schöneberg's progressive past.
