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

An iconic German shop, this lives up to its billing. Yes, it is extremely expensive like other similar shops of its status but it is definitely worth a wander around even if you don't intend on buying anything. There is a lovely food area on the top floor. Great breakfast selection but beware - it is not cheap!

This store still exudes all the ambiance it once had, and unlike Harrods( its UK equivalent) the ordinary people of Berlin shop eat and drink there, the prices are competitive

We walked to KeDeWa from our hotel and we're not sure what to expect. At first it appeared to be a high end department store...then we took the elevator to the 6th floor. We stepped into another world. First we walked around looking at the food pairings with the adult beverage selections! we were like kids in a candy store...... More

What a shop! We visited based on a mention in my guide book about the 1000+ cheeses on sale on the gourmet floor. There was probably close to 2000+, unfortunately we didn't buy any on this occasion but the browse around the gourmet floor was really enjoyable. They sell everything, it is laid out beautifully and the cakes and pastries... More

Spent a good hour walking amongst amazing food and drink, in what can only be described as a wonderful food hall. We then ate at NEW BURGER, great experience. Had the Fancy Menu at €29 for a fabulous burger with fillet steak, lobster tail a side of fries and a glass of champagne all included in the price. Try for... More

This store is worth visiting. It is huge and you can easily spend a day in this place. ( if you do, better leave your wallet locked) food is available almost on every floor and it is very good If you like sushi, this is the place to get it. The place reminds me of the food halls at Harrods,... 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.
