If you are close to Kürfürstendamm walking around and you are close to the KaDeWE department store then I recommend you to go for lunch to the last floor. There you will be surprised by the excellent variety of food. We went to the oysters bar!! Very recommendable.

KDW used to be a hot spot before 1989 but nowadays it is just a shopping mall. Maybe the most interesting thing is to observe all kinds of snobs who pay far too much when buying luxury articles or when eating oysters and drinking champaign.

Worst experience in Berlin. It's a department store - big deal - bit the food hall excited me as it was so buzzing. Big mistake. 20 minute queue to prefer then 15 minute queue at the end to pay. Very poorly laid out and a real waste of time.

Not a bad place to spend some time. Just looking at the variety of foods and condiments is interesting. Over 1000 cheeses, 500 meats etc, but, not...one...tub...of...hummous! The cafeteria on the 7th floor is nice and not too pricey but prepare to wait as they make the food for you after you order (the burger was pretty good). The store... More

Every department has a big range of different products and you are going to find what you are looking for. But be aware that there are a lot of people, just everywhere. The staff in the kids book corner is very friendly

Why is this place famous? It used to be the showcase of western consumerism, a thumbing of the nose at the poor East Germans living across the wall in food-ticket land. Well, the Wall is long gone, and this is just another huge department store, selling high-class merchandise like you'd find at any Harrod's or Galleries Lafayette. It may have... More

Berlins answer to Harrods in London. Pretty much the same, lots of fabulous brands and expensive stuff. Nice building though. Be sure to check the opening hours before you go there, we didn't so arrived after closing the first time (we stayed really close so that wasn't a big deal though).

If you have thick wallet go there. Many well known brands. Everybody will find something. But reserve for this several hours. As a tourist atraction is 0/5, but if you want to go shopping then is 5/5 :)

I shall confess, I am not a person who likes to spend hours of my day, especially when I am on vacation, shopping. However, this place was awesome. It has floors of goods — anything you need. I actually went here to explore the sixth floor. I was told that the sixth floor had a number of eateries. That's putting... 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.
