It's a bit touristic but this massive department store in Wittenbergplatz is good for some shopping. First off: it's home to Berlin's only shop that sells clothing from UK retailer Topshop/Topman. Second: window-shopping. Who doesn't love it?!

Expensive and massive (it's the second-largest department store in Europe, behind Harrods), it is worth a wander through to say you've been there. Buy your goods elsewhere though, or you'll be paying over the odds. Make sure you make a stop on the 6th floor to visit the food halls too.
Tip: If you're peckish and are looking for places to eat around KaDeWe, the currywurst stand just outside KaDeWe (near Witterburgplatz station) serves some great currywurst - and Witty's across the road is even better.

This is the second largest department store in Europe - "Department Store of the West" It has 2 large food floors - the biggest we have ever seen. The have stations were you can eat almost any type of food you could want. We had dinner at the German food section and the portions were enormous. If you go away hungry from this place it is your own fault. There is also a buffet restaurant on the top floor which is excellent and well priced.Recommended for:Foodies

A bit overrated but if you want to go there, at least visit the highest floor because the food selection and champagne bar's are amazing!

I love this huge store. It is one of the largest in Europe. I can't forget the first time I went here. I was so impressed with the christmas decors that I opened my camera to try to take a shot but was stopped by the store personnel. Although Galerie in Paris and similar stores have their own lavish decorations, I felt the one I saw in KaDeWe was special and extraordinarily tasteful.

The food court on the top floor of this department store is a must for any visitor - an incredible selection of foods from around the world. There are numerous counters where you can pull up a stool and enjoy a meal, everything from seafood to sausages to meat depending on the department. Oh and they sell clothes too...

Kaufhaus des Westens. It is the equivalent of the huge department stores of Harrod's or Lafayette's. It is a great place just to wander to see the different things they have on sale. Make sure to visit the food floor to see all the beer they have.

If you're a fan of shopping and department stores, you should check this place out. It would be easy to spend lots of time here wandering around the store. But if you have little time and want to get a good overall feel of the place, plan to have lunch here.
VERY kid friendly (as all shopping store are) and economical. Plan for 2 or 3 hours of eating and casual shopping... longer if you're really looking to spend.
The watches department is quite nice to view as well.Recommended for:Family Travelers
