Friedrichstraße is one of Berlin's higher-end shopping streets lined with elegant boutiques and designer shops. Parisian department store Galeries Lafayette has brought French style and fashion to Berlin. The stylish department store with the striking cone-shaped atrium offers not just fashion and cosmetics, but also bistros and a fine foods department downstairs with typical French specialities on offer.
Next to Galeries Layette is Quartier 206 in its elegant Art Deco style. Exclusive boutiques invite you to spend a few hours browsing and buying. Many international fashion labels shops on and around Friedrichstraße. As you head north and cross Unter den Linden, you'll come to Dussmann, the self-style "department store of culture". It offers a massive selection of books, stationery, DVDS, and CDs. You can easily browse the shelves here for hours and forget the time.
What's the best way to get to Friedrichstraße?
The Friedrichstraße station (both S-Bahn and U-Bahn) is one convenient starting point for a shopping excursion. You can also reach the southern half of Friedrichstraße with the U2 to Stadtmitte or the U6 to Französische Straße, the latter offering direct entry to Galeries Lafayette. Parking is available in Mitte at a price. Galeries Lafayette does have a car park.
