  • If you are on holiday in Berlin, you should also go to the KaDeWe, but do not forget your credit card or the well-filled wallet. Huge selection of luxury labels at prices that are hard to pay for ordinary earners.

  • A pricey department store for the wealthy. Its interesting to see how the 1% live and this store gives some insight. Too luxury brands are accompanied by an ample wine food selection. Worth a walk through and for people with more money than sense.
  • The fifth floor of food is amazing. There are restaurants, bars, markets, and food counters for fish, baked goods, coffee, etc. I could have spent hours there. We enjoyed BRLO Chicken and Beer. The pastries at the French bakery were also amazing. The bathroom is on the sixth floor, which didn’t seem to be accessible by elevator. I had to go to the middle area for the escalator. It was clean, but there were three attendants at the door between the women’s and men’s sides, and I felt like they were more in the way than helpful, though they were quite pleasant. The first floor is a freaking madhouse. This is where all the beauty and jewelry products were located. Walking through the cosmetics area, we got a little whiff of something that made me think the baby in the stroller next to us needed changing. As we got deeper in there, it was clear that it wasn’t the baby, but it was an explosion of stench from somewhere within the shop. I have no idea what it was, but the employees didn’t bat an eyelash. We, on the other hand, ran as quickly as possible away from both the stench and the crowd.
