Due to its size, it offers a lot of brands, and the food department it huge. But if you are not looking for a delicatesses or a specifik brand, there is nothing much to see. The building in itself is nothing our of the ordinary. (View of the city from the top floor, but there are other more interesting places... More

What a wonderful department store this is. The biggest in Continental Europe and the best. This is how shopping should be, the Gourmet Food Floor is a revelation, and knocks Harrods into a cocked hat. Simply the best, a must visit!

KaDeWe has opened an excellent all encompassing craft, fabric and art related ' floor'. It is accessible by lift and overhead walkway from the main store or just crossing the road opposite. All staff we met were helpful. Make sure you have lots of time as there is so much to browse ....

In May 2015 while in Berlin we walked up Kurtfurstendamm and around to Wittenbergplatz opposite the Ke Da We department store. We went up the escalators to the various floors stopping here and there until we reached the 6th floor food hall and stores. It was early morning and what a magnificent display of all sorts of quality food products.... More

The food court is amazing with lots to see and different cuisines from all over the world to buy. Lots of eateries here for a small bite to eat. Spent ages here and loved it.

Didn't have time to shop, but did get to enjoy the enormous food court on the top floor. Local food, as well as, gourmet cheeses and meats from other countries. Great place to get a beer and a bratwurst. We also enjoyed the deli with gourmet meats and cheeses from spain.

A huge mall feeling inside, with a bunch of big named brands (read super expensive), people wandering around looking at over-priced stuff in the windows. Don't see the attraction here at all.

Visited here with my girlfriend in September 2014. We visited for a walk around and to have a bite to eat in the buffet restaurant. There are lots of different brands from clothing and home wear, to makeup and food, covering many floors. KaDeWe is a bit like Selfridges, fairly modern inside with similar brands. The buffet on the top... More

Store is overpriced, however, it is a must see. Every level is more impressive than the other. The top floor and restaurant offers a great view of the city. Unfortunately we didn't get to eat there but menu looked interesting.

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.
