Shopping in Berlin

The city's best-known shopping street is Kurfürstendamm, where you will find luxury boutiques, such as Gucci, among lower-priced shops like H&M. On Weinmeisterstraße, you will find shops from larger chains and local entrepreneurs. You will also find pleasant terraces where you can relax with a cup of coffee.

Are you looking for unique garments from often unknown designers? Then visit the concept stores at Mall Bikini. The collection changes several times a year, so every visit will offer surprises.
