Berlin is the shopping metropolis of Germany. Unlike other German cities, Berlin does not only have one central pedestrian zone. In addition to the two most famous shopping streets, Kurfürstendamm and Friedrichstraße, with their numerous renowned boutiques, there are many other neighbourhoods with individual character. It is in these Berlin neighbourhoods that you can find fine delicatessens, relaxed weekly markets and funky, hip Berlin-style shops. Popular destinations for exciting concept stores and trendy boutiques are Bergmannstrasse and Oranienstrasse, Akazienstrasse or Schönhauser Allee.
An exclusive shopping spree is, of course, guaranteed in Berlin's largest and most famous department stores, the KaDeWe with its six floors in Kurfürstendamm. Together with Schloßstraße and the malls in Potsdamer Platz and Alexanderplatz, it is one of the most famous places to shop in Berlin. Then, of course, there are the many outlets, markets and seasonal events, like the Christmas markets in Berlin.
