Food Hall a must

This store is probably not much different to any store in a capital city. However if you are in the area the food hall on 6th floor is a must.

Nicely laid out, luxury shopping experience. Food hall and buffet restaurant both very opulent and interesting and definitely worth a visit. Exceptional variety and good customer service.

I was looking for some specific luxury items given the current favorable exchange rate. I emailed VIP services 10 days before my arrival and requested that specific items be held for me. Email correspondence was excellent as was the dedicated service when I arrived. Additionally, much of the duty free refund process can be processed right in the store. A... More

Impressive department store, particularly the interesting food court area, but to be honest nothing that spectacular if you are used to the larger department stores in London (for example).

We mainly spent time in the food hall on the recommendation of a "top 10 things to do" list. It has sections with food products from all over the world and various counters (confectionery, cheeses, desserts, breads etc) Coming from London, it didn't feel that different to a normal supermarket or food halls in my home city (where world foods...

I was there yesterday and long story short it was amazing; why: - Very clean and organized - Variety of products, from kitchen, clothing, home appliances to 5 star food and restaurants and fast foods and vegetables and range of chocolates and drinks. I was amazed with this mall and it's a true German organization, brilliant brilliant

No pics allowed inside. Which I did not know until I had gotten to the top floor and security told me. ;) There are other shopping centers in Europe. Other than the markets of Istanbul, KaDeWa (as the locals call it) is THE best place to shop in Europe. Large, comfortable, and with name brand and up and coming brand... 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.
