A shopping tour in wintry Berlin
The popular shopping streets Kurfürstendamm and Schloßstraße as well as the Hackescher Markt are especially festive in December. If you want to buy luxury items for Christmas, the numerous designer shops on Friedrichstraße might be just right. Or you can head to the large shopping centres like Potsdamer Platz Arkaden or the architecturally outstanding Mall of Berlin to browse for gifts in the festively decorated shops. Gourmets will find shops throughout Berlin's Mitte district offering delicious chocolates, champagnes, and other delicacies for refined festive occasions.
