Berlin is the city of shopping. The German capital, full of shops of great designer lables, shopping malls, second-hand shops and markets, will satisfy all tastes. Below we bring you to the main shopping areas of Berlin.

 

Hackesche Höfe

KURFURSTENDAMM

The “Kudamm” is the most popular street for walking in Berlin along with its continuation Tauentzienstrasse, it represents the avenue of shopping par excellence, ideal for the whole family. And one of the most important shopping streets in Germany. The boulevard 3.5 km long goes from Breitscheidplatz with the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church to the Rathenauplatz. There are many boutiques, atelier and shops around Breitscheidplatz and the side streets. Among the commemorative church and Adenauerplatz, exclusive fashion brands, elegant boutiques and precious designer shops and jewellery, as well as famous international chains, have settled. You can also spend some relaxing time in the many cafes and restaurants that offer all kinds of treats.

 

ALEXANDERPLATZ

It is ideal for shopping: in 2007 the Alexa shopping Centre was inaugurated, where it is possible to find anything.

 

FRIEDRICHSTRASSE

It could be said that in it the shopping in Berlin is summed up. From the luxury of the department store Les Galeries Lafayette in the Block 207, to the many fashion shops created by young stylists, to the shops of street wear up to the latest trends of the German metropolis.

 

HACKESCHE HOFE

The Hackesche Höfe are within walking distance of the Hackescher Markt Underground station and are a complex of eight adjoining courtyards, renovated and rich in attractions and entertainment venues. The main entrance is at number 40 in Rosenthalerstrasse.

Here you can find fashionable clothes, tasty falafels or snacks and unforgettable breakfasts. The Schönhauser Allee will take you to boutiques, restaurants and shops. Schönhauser Allee and Helmholtzplatz as well as Kollwitzplatz on one side and Kastanien Allee on the other can not be missed for any reason! For the nostalgic of Italian flavors we report at number 48 a place born on initiative of two Italians, always crowded, it offers freshly baked products.

 

FRIEDRICHSHAIN-KREUZBERG

Unmissable neighborhoods for those who love fashion and alternative music, the mix of cultures, second-hand, discs and books. Bergmanstrasse and Oranienstrasse, lively streets of the Berlin night, are enlivened in the day time by young and not so young people looking for retro pieces, unfindable gadgets, vintage clothes.
