Bernauer Strasse 63-64
One of the best things about Berlin is that it’s not a very expensive city, and when it comes to shopping in Berlin, you can find a great variety of bargain-basement deals. However, there are still plenty of high-end designer goods to drain your pockets as well.
The biggest and most well-known shopping street in Berlin is Kurfürstendamm Strasse. Ku’Damm, as it’s commonly known, is lined with big name retailers like LaCoste, Chanel, Gucci, and Louis Vuitton. The biggest department store though is KaDeWe which features seven floors of clothes, luxury goods, and gourmet foods. It’s definitely easy to get lost inside. Ku’Damm also has a good number of restaurants and cafés, so if your dogs are tired, you can relax with some coffee before the stores come beckoning once again.
For a more alternative Berlin shopping experience, there’s the Mauerpark Flea Market. Every Sunday, the Flea Market transforms the park into a wild and whacky bazaar. Literally everything is on sale here from vintage clothes, jewelry, old books, and records, to toys, games, furniture, and tchotchkes.
Budget-friendly to wallet draining, Berlin provides shoppers with a variety of options. And whether you want some designer goods or someone else’s old junk, there are plenty of options strewn throughout the city.
