Look forward to going shopping

Go for a wander and discover Berlin’s endless shopping possibilities. Whether you’re looking for international designer fashion, unusual ideas in hip Berlin style or a cheap bargain, you’ll be sure to find just the thing in the shopping centres, department stores, small shops and high-class boutiques.

The largest and most famous department store in Berlin is KaDeWe on Kurfürstendamm. Here you can experience exclusive shopping over six floors. Old turns into new: you can find second-hand, vintage and upcycling stores throughout the city. You can also find bargains at the outlet stores in the city.

Our tip: Several times a year, shops in Berlin are allowed to open on Sunday too.

Discover Berlin’s shopping miles

Stroll down Kurfürstendamm or through the shopping malls at Potsdamer Platz. Discover small individual boutiques with hip fashion in Mitte. Simply wander from one window display to the next.

Unlike other German cities, Berlin does not have a central pedestrian zone. In addition to the two most famous shopping miles, Kurfürstendamm and Friedrichstraße, there are many quarters with their own individual character. We’ve created an overview for you.

Fresh fruit and vegetables, flowers and tasty delicacies from all over the world – plus a pleasant chat: Berlin’s weekly markets are not just for shopping, they are also a popular meeting point.

The large indoor markets, with their lavish offerings, are especially popular. Tip: Try some tasty street food at Markthalle IX. And during the Advent season you should definitely visit one of the numerous Christmas markets. We have already made a list of them for you.
