Impressive and bold, offering all kinds of luxury items imaginable. Seven stores of designer shopping with the vast food and wine hall on the sixth. Unique experience, definitely worth visiting. Choice of food on the sixth will suit all tastes.

I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the KaDeWe. It's Europe's largest department store and a quick walk from the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church. It offers a nice break from the more somber, historic tourist attractions and while I didn't shop, the 5th floor food hall was the perfect dinner spot for a solo traveller. (I elected to have...

Visited just to see what it was like. Would rate along with Harvey Nichols. Not overly impressed just another large over rated department store full of designer names and labels. Good if that is what you want.

The Kaufhaus des Westens has a very fascinating history but it is probably the excellent range of high end products and architecture why people visit this store. I found it very easy to find my way around KaDeWe. I also found the staff to be friendly and helpful. The food hall on the 6th floor is fascinating and well worth... More

This is essentially the Selfridges of Berlin, if not with a slightly better layout. I went in with high hopes of finding the Versace shoes I had been looking for, but to no avail. It does not have the Superbrands layout that makes Harrods so convenient, but it is an excellent shopping venue nonetheless. Would definitely recommend visiting over a... More

Most high end shops like KaDeWe are very uncomfortable and confusing... Not this one ! Very nice quality material, friendly personnel and an uncluttered layout. Must say the toilets are a bit off the beaten path. The roof restaurant has no nonsense food and a bright atmosphere. Only a single entry and the corridors are not like a maze that... More

My husband and I visited KeDeWe last week. Well worth a visit if not for the delights that meet the eyes but for the scrumptious food and drink that tickle your tastebuds on the 6th and 7th floor. As to be expected it is expensive to purchase clothing, homeware, etc but in terms of food and drink , we felt... More

Next to Wittenberg Platz metro station,KaDeWe is an iconic shopping mall in Berlin. Top class brands, an excellent food court and top class chocolate outlets. Worth a visit whenever someone is in the vicinity. It is pricey,but,then it is top notch.

Went to KaDeWe for breakfast - the choice could only be described as incredible. Buffet with everything you could ever think of. Really worth a visit and reasonably priced, in fact probably cheaper than most hotels. Quality excellent. Then take yourself down to the 6th floor to visit the most incredible deli you will ever visit. Lots of eating place... More

The store has much to offer - high end mostly. There seems to be some confusion about the food floors - they are 6 and 7; the 7th floor is where there are many choices sort of cafeteria style. Your food may be prepared for you but you put it on a tray and find a table at which to... More

Staying in Schoneberg

Neighborhood Profile
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.
