Lovely old department store. Nice to have a look around all the various departments. Food hall really good. How the other half live pricewise though. 😜

KaDeWe is a huge department store in what was West Berlin. Its 6th floor food hall offers a vast selection of prepared to order and prepared foods. We ate at a burger restaurant with tasty juicy burgers topped with fried onions, all prepared to order right in front of us. The fries were crispy and tasty. With 1 Coke Lite... More

It is a bit of a tradition to go here for oysters and fizz whenever we visit Berlin, can also recommend the flamcuchen but vast array of food styles so something for everyone.

This is an essential must-see in Berlin. You need to allocate at least 4 to 5 hours to cover it all including a great lunch at there food hall. It's not really a food hall as a place where they serve incredible food from dozens of amazing food stations. Think fresh fish, lobster. fresh sushi, german sausage and sauerkraut, delicious...

We enjoyed our trip in this old school department store. Built in 1907, it is the largest department store in mainland Europe. Similar to La Rinascente in Milan, but you can actually buy something here. Love the 6th floor international food center. We bought Germany made Move towels in the home department with summer sale discount. Replaced Omega watch battery... More

Came for the shopping experience, were just overwhelmed with choice. And people-watching. This is a place to get treats, or gifts. And we were all able to do that. Allow yourself enough time to explore. Surprisingly, I found an assistant with less English than I have German, which made for an interesting interaction. The food/cafe area is particularly luxurious, with... More

If you came to Berlin for sightseeing, you may be a bit disappointed. Most of the sights are just replicas and some of them even built from concrete panels. However, KaDeWe really has much to offer (e.g. the only Dior boutique in Berlin). If you're into fashion at least a little bit, don't hesitate to spend here a day or... More

Large, landmark department store. The Berlin version of London's Harrods, Galleries Lafayette in Paris. The food hall and the fine jewellery areas are impressive, and worth walking around to sample the sights (and tastes & smells for the food hall). The rest of the store just appears to replicate numerous other department stores and many of the brands sold here... More

THis is really the shopping center for the few, who have very special needs for expensice brands; Gucci, Dior, LV, and the like all have their own shops inside, and hence that, there are guards everywhere, and you can not really go around and look. Not for me but funny to visit.

Great shopping mall with all the high end stuff. So if you like shopping this is the place to go. Could call it the Harrods of Berlin without the charm But it is what it is a shopping mall

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.
