Amazing shopping icon of Berlin. Second largest department store in Europe. Very expensive, frantic pace, so many people. Not a pleasant experience really, has not got the class of Harrods nor the friendly helpful staff. Take it or leave it, not a must see.

Our annual visit to the Christmas Market in Berlin always includes a visit to KaDeWe. Until now a wonderful experience, however, on this visit the most noticeable change was the attitude of the staff. Unhelpful and very, very rude and not just in one department...More

We went to KaDeWe with low expectations, but we absolutely loved it. First of all, the building is impressive. When you enter the building.. well, it 's breathtaking! Some of the most exclusive brands globally have popup stores inside and all the employees are nice...More

If you enjoy forcing your way through throngs to shop for bargains of designer wares, this is for you. Well worth while in a compact format, with most of the major luxury brands. A bit out of town but easy to get to.

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

Only small dogs on your arm are allowed. They use to have 5 cages for larger dogs but did away with them.

I need some inputs from you. I believe it will be too much . Can you help to cut some stuff from the itinerary or do you think it is practical to have all of the following sites, etc. in the itinerary. Any additions are welcomed as well.

I'm sure others will be able to help better on some of the days, but the following can be grouped together for the Berlin Zoo day,Tiergarten, Kurfürstendamm , Kaufhaus des Westens (KaDeWe). That will take up a fair amount of time, if theres any time left over then do the Turkish neighbourhood on this day, but bare in mind you have to stop to eat and drink which takes more time especially with kids too. To team it with Potsdam would not work I dont think timewise.
