Berlin fashion is much more than chic. It’s unique, irreverent, the kind of effortless cool most people can only aspire to pull off. Nonconformity seems to be the name of the game here, with funky patterns, mismatched shoes, and electric-colored hair everywhere you turn. This style is what makes the German capital a prime shopping destination. Whether you want top fashion brands, hyper specialized souvenir stores, or boutique stores where everything is handmade, if you wander around the city long enough, you’ll be sure to find it.Kurfürstendamm
If you only have time to hit up one shopping spot, let it be Kurfürstendamm. Not only is this street Berlin’s most famous and largest shopping district, it is also where you’ll enjoy the most distinguished experience. Luxury hotels and high-end restaurants are complemented by the numerous designer labels found throughout the street. Ku’damm, as locals call it, is also home to KaDeWe, the largest department store in continental Europe; as well as Europa-Center Mall. But not everything in the district is geared towards those with bottomless pockets. You’ll also find more budget-friendly chains, small boutique stores, and specialty stores like the charming year-round Christmas wonder, Kathe Wohlfahrt.
