The history, the product assortment, the chic atmosphere are all reasons to experience this department store. The Windergarten Restaurant at the top floor has a view - but Berlin lacks a spectacular sky line - you actually come here for the spectacular food show laid out in front of you. The seafood, meats,soups, salads,gateau/tarts/pastries are all proudly displayed with care... More

I come to KaDeWe EVERY time I'm in Berlin. Absolutely love it. I describe it as "Harrod's on steroids"!!!! The food level is my main go to...just unbelievable. Meats from every state in Germany, breads and cake selections to die for that go on for miles!! On the other floors also some decadent items to shop for..,this last visit I... More

What a store! If we had this in the States we would never shop anyplace else. On top of great merchandise, there is a food court that takes up an entire floor. This is a market and food purveyors rolled into one. You can spend an entire afternoon here, but make sure you have lunch on the 6th floor.

We came here for a wander and to have a cake in the buffet restaurant upstairs. Lots of different brands from clothing to home wear to makeup to food covering many floors. It's a bit like Selfridges in London. Fairly modern inside with similar brands. The buffet on the top level was very expensive, €15 for two glasses of coke... More

We went on a Saturday to this famous shopping temple in old West Berlin. You get squeezed between crowds of people (most, I guess, tourists). The restaurant on the top floor made us crazy - self-service, pushing people, long waiting lines (like Japanese U-Bahn). Do not go there at tourist time. May be in the morning!

Unfortunately I can't afford the vast array of luxury brands, but it was certainly interesting seeing them all under one roof! Having visited Harrods in London in the past it is a similar concept, luxury brands within one department store. For myself the highlight has to be the food floor, I hear that it is the largest within Europe. From... More

So enjoyed this trip to the unique mall/emporium that is KaDeWe. Incredible display of luxury goods but I managed to find a silver scarf on sale and a beautiful wool beret. The best part was indeed the food floor, and we all had the tiniest eclairs with our coffee, a fun pick me up for the rest of the shopping,... More

Walked through the food market and was I amazed. they have it all....had a wine tasting and wished I lived nearby!!! Then went to floor below and gaped at cool toys! Quality was so good I wondered if this was really for kids! The train layout even had an accident scene with little police cars and ambulances with blinking blue... More

Do not miss the food floor, I think it's the 7th floor. Take a walk around to experience the enormity and variety and take note of what you'd like to eat. You can go back and eat at any of the counters, etc. and move from place to place for appetizers, meal, dessert, etc. A one of a kind retail... More

We'd been the Galerie Lafayette's food court, and had been impressed by it. But this KaDeWe food court is by far more interesting and complete. There you find French gourmet cheese, chocolates from all possible origins, German wines, different seasonings and even truffled honeys! Unmissable to any food lover.
