Even if like me, the price of the majority of the items is out of your price range, the KaDeWe, and food hall in particular, is worth a visit. The department store is massive and has an incredibly wide variety of goods. The department store is the biggest in Europe, although in my opinion it is not as impressive as... More

Incredible selection of goods over 60,000 square feet, this is Europe's largest department store. The food hall is the greatest I've ever seen, you could spend hours in there taking in the sights and smells aswell as people watching. Go up a floor to the Wintergarden cafe area and treat yourself to a Pilnser and enormous slice of cake (big... More

Really nice shopping center. Nice collection. Very clean place But beware expensive Sea Food Area; make sure you check the prices very small portions. Nice french cakes and sweets; turtas but again expensive just make sure you take out the cakes and eat upstairs becomes cheaper!! İt worth it.

You can not visit Berlin without visiting KaDeWe. It may be that you do not like shopping, no matter the atmosphere of a famous department store, it is worth go in. It is generally raved about the 6th floor with the style of an old French bistro combined with a traditional department store. Food of the highest quality level can... More

We had a great time stopping over at KaDeWe the last day we were in Berlin. It is overwhelming the tremendous selection the store offers. If you are looking for unusual or unique food, wine or snacks, you should be able to find just about anything on the 6th floor. The store is clean, the staff is friendly. You do... More

Enjoy the many different floors, especially the food department (6th floor) is worth a visit. Also try to get a place at the window (7th floor) and enjoy a cup of coffee with cake.

We visited KaDeWe on the last morning of our trip. I'm not a big shopper, and I wasn't really that interested in the store - I wanted to check out the top-floor restaurant. In fact, I was completely bowled-over by KaDeWe, and it ended up being one of the best experiences I had when in Berlin. The top-floor restaurant *is*... More

there is no shopping experience like this anywhere in the US! The first floor offers all the finest jewelry stores in the world. the fashions are top notch, and the food emporium is breathtaking. bring a camera. the history of the building and family who owned it is worthwhile exploring. I couldn't afford anything but it didn't matter...do not miss... 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.
