Up market shop selling quality goods at high end costs, our favorite part was the top floor food shop/court, this area sold quality food of all types and also cooked some of the merchandise at open kitchen booths where you can have lunch, so brilliant if your a foodies.

We went to KaDeWe and I spent most of my time in the food section. My husband left me there and had a beer and sausage while waiting for me. The displays are very tasteful and any person leaving the shop without a bag full of goodies need to reconsider. The service of the staff was excellent and they advised... More

It wasn't particularly cheap, however that schnitzel was the best ever! Had fried potatoes, mushroom sauce, sauerkraut and gravy and it was the tastiest meal I had during my whole holiday in Berlin. Walking around the food floor was amazing - I just waited to eat everything!!! It was a pretty big portion which I was happy about. delicious it... More

A cross between Harrods/ Selfridges/ SAKS 5th Ave. Every upmarket label you would want and the food floor puts Harrods to shame with sheer choice. The food hall is mind-boggling, ( according to our tour guide it sells 1500 types of cheeses) and has about 20 cafe bars to choose from for lunch and 4 champagne bars. This department store... More

I like to compare stores and cities to see which city has the most lavish store. So far, London wins (Harrods, Selfridges) but I can say that KaDeWe comes in a close second and outclasses Parisian Galeries Lafayette and Printemps. The only real competitor for KaDeWe is the Milanese La Rinascente. For me, it is like visiting a museum and... More

This place is massive. Go here just to browse if not anything else. We had gone to several cigar shops looking for Hoyo de Monterrey cigars. We were directed here. On the 6th floor they have a large wine and cigar selection.

Visited here one afternoon. It's a huge department store full of big names such as Louis Viton, Burberry etc... On the 7th floor is the Winter Garden café. If you are lucky enough to get one of about 6 Window seats, you can look out over the city. The food looks very tasty, but is expensive. A cup of house... More

A department store caring international brands. On the 5th floor you can get just about anything for take away - desserts, meats, cheeses, candies, fine teas and coffees. On the 6th floor enjoy homemade soups and breads and a variety of sandwiches and hot dishes. A nice place to chill out.

I am not much of s shopper so when my family wanted to visit this department store I almost reluctantly agreed. I am so glad we went. The enormity of the store was unexpected. Each level offered endless options for clothing, housewares, appliances, electronics, jewelry etc. My favorite was the marketplace floor. Wow! Cheese counters, fish, meat, candy, wine, any... More

Staying in Schoneberg

Neighbourhood Profile
In 1963, Schöneberg was the centre 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 centre 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.
