Potsdamer Platz

In view of the colourfully spotlighted pavilion roof of the Sony Center and the many high-rise buildings around it, it’s difficult to imagine that Potsdamer Platz for a long time laid in the death strip of the Berlin Wall and was nothing but a desolate wasteland. In 1993, construction began on the DaimlerChrysler headquarters based on a master plan drawn up by the architects Renzo Piano and Christoph Kohl Becker. At the biggest construction site in Europe, a new urban centre arose from scratch in a period of just five years. Helmut Jahn's Sony Center was completed in 2000 and has a futuristic aesthetic in contrast to the DaimlerChrysler headquarters. In early 2004, the elegant Beisheim Center opened at Lenné-Dreieck .

The streets of the Berlin scene neighbourhoods are choc-a-bloc full with cafés. They have everything that you need for a good start to the day, from lactose-free latte macchiato to a hearty buffet. Whether self-service or attentive service, sitting comfortably in upholstered chairs or just squatting on a bar stool, there’s breakfast seven days a week and in some cafés even 24 hours a day – not for nothing is Berlin the city with the widest range of breakfasts. In the afternoons, what better than to take a break from sightseeing or shopping in one of the Berlin’s countless cafés. A quick cappuccino or home-made cake in a pleasant atmosphere is just the ticket for reading your newspaper in peace and quiet or leisurely observing people. Many coffee houses provide their guests with WLAN internet access and sockets for their laptop.

Lovers of exclusive designer fashion, bargain hunters, trendsetters looking for the latest fashion and all those, who would like to take more than just pleasant memories of their stay in Berlin home with them, are guaranteed to get their money’s worth thanks to all the diverse possibilities for shopping in the large shopping centres, department stores, small shops and exclusive boutiques in the city. No matter whether hip, casual and trendy or classical, elegant and timeless – there’s something here for all tastes and purses. And the practically unrestricted opening times (except Sundays) in this shopping paradise will only make the hearts of all shopping fans beat that faster, rather along the lines of the slogan: “Shop until you drop”! One of the most popular shopping streets is of course Kurfürstendamm: here it’s even worth investigating the side streets for your shopping spree. The Kaufhaus des Westens (KaDeWe for short) in Tauentzienstraße is the largest department store on the European mainland and has an enormous range of goods for you to look and marvel at (and also buy!). In Berlin-Mitte the legendary Friedrichstraße now exudes a cosmopolitan flair thanks to its new architecture and chic stores like the Galeries Lafayette or Quartier 206. Alexa at Alexanderplatz is also a great place for shopping. For those who are searching for new trends and original accessories, having a look in the small shops dotted around the Hackesche Höfe in the former Scheunenviertel (barn district) would be well worthwhile. There are lots of young Berlin designers represented in Münzstraße as well as Alte and Neue Schönhauser Straße. And let’s not forget that Kastanienallee in Prenzlauer Berg or Bergmannstraße in Kreuzberg also have some pretty hot fashion shops too. Tip for bargain hunters: The numerous flea markets in Berlin are veritable paradises to rummage through, for example Sundays at Straße des 17. Juni, in the Mauerpark (Wall park) or at Boxhagener Platz.
Friedrichstraße

From the “Golden Twenties” to the architecture of the New Berlin – Friedrichstraße is one of the city’s main arteries. In fact, you might even say: The whole of Berlin in one street. Take the Quartier 207 in Les Galeries Lafayette department store, for example, for shopping and having a look round at French fashion or the delicatessen department with specialities from France. The Quartier 206 next door is one of the beautiful and exclusive shopping addresses in Berlin with labels like Cerruti, Gucci or Louis Vuitton represented in the art déco style passage. Also there’s unique culture to be experienced in Friedrichstraße – in Dussmann the KulturKaufhaus (Culture Department Store). Spread over five floors, it offers everything you could desire in culture: books, music and films, games and audio books, gift articles, stationery material, sheet music and much more besides. While you’re rummaging around a shop like this, it’s easy to immerse yourself so much that you just forget what’s going on around you.

Kurfürstendamm

"Kudamm" is the most popular place for going on a stroll in Berlin. The 3,5 km long boulevard goes all the way from Breitscheidplatz in Charlottenburg, where the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church is located, to the Rathenauplatz in Grunewald, where the villa district of the western part of Berlin begins. Round Breitscheidplatz, on the other hand, there are numerous boutiques, shops and businesses. In quiet side streets such as Fasanenstraße, which is the most prestigious shopping area in Berlin, many fine boutiques and cafes are located in magnificent buildings dating all the way back to the end of the nineteenth century. Kurfürstendamm still remains today the boulevard par excellence in Berlin. During the past several years, numerous new buildings have emerged. In 2001, for instance, the new Kranzlereck opened. The Kudamm Corner at the Joachimsthaler Straße juncture, an eyesore from the 1960`s, was demolished and redeveloped.

Hackescher Markt

Anybody can buy a pair of jeans. And there’s nothing special or exciting about purchasing a pair of shoes, a pullover or top. But what about: looking around and being seen in the many side streets round the Hackesche Höfe? No, no being laden down by umpteen bags of shopping, but just strolling around and taking a break with a latte macchiato there where the young and beautiful hang out. And exactly the right place for this is the unofficial Old Town of Berlin. Here, between Rosenthaler Platz, Hackescher Markt and Sophienkirche (Sophia Church), is located the Bermuda Triangle for shopping victims. You’ll find not only plenty of boutiques and designer shops here but also international fashion chain shops like American Apparell and Urban Outfitters. Those who dip in here for a bit of shopping will not be seen again so quickly.

Mulackstraße und Alte Schönhauser Straße

Small boutiques with hot labels, flagship stores of international designers – in Berlin-Mitte the area around Alte Schönhauser Straße and Mulackstraße has established itself as the perfect location for an exclusive shopping trip. International cult labels and Berlin designers have moved into the small streets near the Hackesche Höfe in a big way, so turning the area into a popular fashion shopping mile. Nowhere else in Berlin are there so many style-conscious fashionistas and shopaholics to be seen, looking as though they have emerged from a fashion blog. The matching design for the typical “Mitte” look is showcased in the shop windows of many boutiques and flagship stores here.

Kreuzberg: Oranienstraße und Bergmannstraße

Kreuzberg: this is the true shopping paradise for all those on the look out for something special and outlandish: not only old records, rummage, vintage fashion but also young fashion and original design. Bergmannstraße in Kreuzberg is not exactly a classic shopping street, but the small shops interspersed with cafés and restaurants do offer an insider’s tip of one kind or another. Alongside long-established rummage and second-hand shops, new boutiques have opened up – stylish hats at Coy art to wear - Hutkunst aus Berlin (Berlin Hat Art), and the bag to match at BagAge. Highly typical for Berlin is the Markthalle (Market Hall) am Marheinekeplatz, built in 1862 and steeped in tradition, which today offers fresh regional organic products. Oranienstraße was located in the wild 36 postal district of Kreuzberg. In the meantime, however, Oranienstraße has also changed. Although cafés and bars such as Die Rote Harfe (Red Harp), the Würgeengel (Terminating Angel) in Dessauer Straße just around the corner – and, of course, the legendary SO 36 Club – still characterise Oranienstraße, Berlin fashion stores such as Wildfremd, skater fashion at Search and Destroy, streetwear in Depot 2 have now made their mark here. What makes Bergmannstraße and Oranienstraße so special is the creative mixture of the long-established and the new, of completely distinct traditions as well as improvisations that have had a habit of becoming a permanent fixture. These are two areas, in which a stroll represents – for whatever reasons – a tour into the unique Berlin awareness of life.

Alexanderplatz

Alexanderplatz is one of the most famous squares in Berlin as well as the largest in Germany. And it’s always been a huge shopping magnet. The first shopping facilities opened up here as far back as the 19th century. Since the 1960s, the whole square has been a pedestrian precinct, while gaining in the process the former Centrum Warenhaus and the Alex Passages. After the Berlin Wall came down, the Centrum Warenhaus was converted into the modern Galeria Kaufhof. In 2007, the Alexa Shopping Centre with its 180 shops and 17 restaurants was opened, followed two years later by its Die Mitte counterpart. So at Alex now there’s nothing more that isn’t there!
