Berlin is a great place for people who love shopping. The city offers a versatile mix of shopping malls, department stores and streets with smaller boutiques. In this article we list the best areas for shopping in Berlin, a map with the exact locations and some frequently asked questions.
More than 70 shopping malls
With 70 different shopping malls you never have to travel far to go shopping in Berlin. On top of these malls there are also a bunch of outside areas like Kurfürstendamm, Friedrichstraße and Hackescher Markt. All these areas differ quite a bit when it comes to the shops, the foodcourts/restaurants, the connection and more. This article lists the best shopping areas and should make it easier to decide where to go.
In the west of Berlin, in the district Charlottenburg, the most famous shopping street of Berlin can be found. It’s called Kurfürstendamm and offers its visitors five kilometres of shopping pleasure. It’s a great mix of known brands, smaller boutiques, department stores and even a shopping mall (Europacenter). In the streets surrounding this area you can find many tasty restaurants for when you want to have a break.
Many songs, movies and books were inspired by the rich history of the Kurfürstendamm.
Authentic shopping in Berlin
Large shopping malls might have more shops per square meter but do not come close to the unique atmosphere of the Kurfürstendamm. Shopping in Berlin does not get more authentic than this. Walking around in this area is so much more fun than being inside a shopping mall. And if you really want to visit a shopping mall you can always go to the Europacenter which is located directly next to the Kurfürstendamm. One last benefit: You can combine shopping in this area with a visit to the Zoo, the Gedächtniskirche or a Christmas market.
Famous department store: KaDeWe
If you visit the Kurfürstendamm you should most definitely also visit the KaDeWe. This department store was build more than 100 years ago and is an experience by itself: With 60.000 square meters and 6 floors you can spend a good part of your shopping afternoon in this place. The products vary from cosmetics to clothing and from music to furniture. On the sixth floor you can find many extraordinary foods from all over the world.
Opening Hours:: Most shops between 11.00 – 19.00
Public Transport: U-Bahn Wittenbergplatz or S+U-Bahn Zoologischer Garten.
Amount of shops: +/- 100
Example of shops: KaDeWe, Peek&Cloppenburg, Karstadt, Fanshop Hertha Bsc, Nikeshop Berlin, The body shop, Douglas, Armani, Timberland, C&A, Chanel, H&M, Zara and many more
If you love a proper discount you could consider visiting the Designer Outlet in Spandau. It’s like a small town with outlets of all large fashion brands.
Although we just had a beautiful summer, the weather in Berlin can be rather cold in some months of the year. On these days it is pleasant to go shopping in an indoor shopping mall. On walking distance of Alexanderplatz you can visit a mall called Alexa. It offers 56.000 square meter of shops, a large foodcourt and you can even play bowling on the top-floor of the mall.
Convenient Shopping – Many shops close together
Alexa might not be the most authentic place to go shopping in Berlin but it is certainly a very convenient shopping area. It goes without saying that Alexanderplatz is easy to reach by both U-Bahn and S-Bahn. Besides that Alexa offers 180 different stores on three different levels. This means you will never have to walk far to get from one shop to another. With shops like Tommy Hilfiger, Quiksilver, Northface, Mango, Mediamarkt and Levi’s there is a nice range of shops for all ages and interests. A full list of shops can be found here.
Foodcourt with 17 restaurants
When you get hungry or thirsty during the shopping, you can always take a rest at the foodcourt. Alexa offers 17 different places to eat and plenty of chairs and tables. Alexa is open till 21.00 so you could even decide to have dinner here and do a bit of night-shopping. If you need some relaxation after a day of shopping you can always visit the day spa in the Radisson Blu Hotel which is not far from here.
Name: Alexa shopping center
Opening-Hours: 10.00 – 21.00
Public Transport: Alexanderplatz or Jannowitzbrücke
Website: Website Alexa
Amount of shops: 180
Example of shops: Tommy Hilfiger, Zara, Esprit, H&M, Tommy Hilfiger, Edeka, Bijou Brigitte, Billabong, Quiksilver, Northface, Vero Moda, Mango, Levi’s and many more
3. Hackescher Markt
One of my favourite places to go shopping in Berlin is Hackescher Markt. Although the amount of shops is way lower than most shopping malls, the atmosphere is way better. If you travel to station Hackescher Markt you will arrive on a small square with some restaurant and a market every Thursday and Saturday. When you walk a bit further in the direction of Rosenthaler Straße you will find many interesting fashion brands like RayBan, Oakley, Fossil, Adidas, Energy, Scotch and Soda, Diesel and more.
Central location with nice restaurants and bars
Besides a bunch of nice shops and boutiques its great that there are many nice restaurants and bars close to Hackescher Markt. You can grab a good pizza, there is a cosy tapas place (YoSoy) and our favourite Vietnamese place Manngo can also be found in this area. Reaching Hackescher Markt should not be hard because it’s just one station away from Alexanderplatz.
All in all we can summarise that Hackescher Markt is perfect for people who love to do a bit of shopping and enjoy a drink with some proper food afterwards.
Name: Hackescher Markt
Address: Rosenthaler Straße
Opening-Hours: Most shops from 11.00 – 20.00
Public Transport: S-Bahn Hackescher Markt or Tram
Website: No official website
Amount of shops: 50-60
Example of shops: Scotch and Soda, Diesel, Energie, Pepe Jeans Paul Frank, Adidas, Mavi, Wesc, Strellson, Cos, Swatch, Fossil and many more.
No time for shopping? We have gathered some great Berlin Souvenirs which you can buy online without much effort.
4. Mall of Berlin
A shopping mall which was opened in September 2014 is called the Mall of Berlin. This shopping-center is located directly next to Potsdamer Platz and should therefore fit perfectly in the schedule of every visitor of Berlin. The Mall of Berlin is about 200.000 square meters and offers more than 270 different shops. With large clothing-brands like Guess, Hugo Boss, Armani, Replay, G-Star and Levi’s this is great place for people who are looking for new clothing. Obviously you can also find other products here: Saturn, Christ, Depot, Fossil, Deichmann are just a few other shops.
Largest foodcourt in Berlin
Besides plenty of shops, the Mall of Berlin offers the largest foodcourt of Berlin. You will be able to eat everything from a quick snack to a real meal inside the mall. And if this is not enough you can always walk to Potsdamer Platz to enjoy some exclusive restaurants there. If you are done with shopping it’s not hard to find your next activity nearby: The Jewish Memorial, Cinemaxx cinema and Legoland are all on walking distance and you can even visit a large casino at Potsdamer Platz.
Name: Mall of Berlin
Opening-Hours: 10.00 tot 21.00
Public Transport: Potsdamer Platz or Mohrenstraße
Website: Website Mall of Berlin
Amount of shops: 270
Example of shops: Esprit, H&M, C&A, Douglas, Mango, Peek & Cloppenburg, Guess, Hugo Boss, Armani, G-Star, Levi’s, Zara, Vans, Saturn, Replay, Pepe Jeans. and many more
There are 8 Sundays each year on which the shops in Berlin are open. Some shops in Hauptbahnhof are open every Sunday.
5. East Side Mall
The newest shopping Mall in Berlin was opened in October 2018 and is called the East Side Mall. This mall is located directly in front of station Warschauer Straße and therefore has a perfect location for everybody who is staying in Friedrichshain. Besides plenty of interesting shops you can find a fitness-club, a cinema, two supermarkets and even a bowling-alley here.
120 versatile shops and many nice restaurants
The East Side Mall does not have as much shops as the Mall of Berlin or Alexa but still offers many great brands like Bershka, Weeklday, Vero Moda, Monki, H&M, Rituals and more. What’s great about the Mall of Berlin is that besides a foodcourt there are also many very nice restaurants closer to the Mercedes Benz Arena. You can have a lovely hamburger in places like Hans im Glück or Five Guys for example.
Mercedes Benz Arena and East Side Gallery
A visit to the East Side Mall can be easily combined with watching a sport-match or enjoying a concert of a cover band. All of this can be found in the Mercedes Benz Arena. On the other side of the street you can find the Spree and the East Side Gallery . All in all the East Side Mall is a nice place for some shopping in Berlin.
Name: East Side Mall
Opening-Hours: 10.00 – 21.00
Public Transport: Warschauer Straße
Website: Website East Side Mall
Amount of shops: 180
Example of shops: Weekday, H&M, Saturn, Berschka, Calzedonia, Only, Jack & Jones, Vero Moda and many more
Cannot get enough of shopping? The Don Xuan Center in Lichtenberg offers products from Asia and delicious food.
As a visitor of Berlin, you might be interested in combining shopping in Berlin with some of the touristic attractions. If this is the case you should consider visiting the Friedrichstrasse. Besides a great place for shopping, you can easily visit places like Checkpoint Charlie and Brandenburger Tor. A highlight in the winter is the Christmas market located at the Gendarmenmarkt.
Exclusive and expensive shops
But this article should be related to shopping so let us get back to that topic: Friedrichstrasse is known for offering some of the more exclusive shops in the higher price range. Brands like Gucci, Hugo Boss, Marc O’Polo and Breitling are just a few examples. There are also larger department stores like Galaries Lafayette and Dussmann. The fact that the prices are higher does not mean that Friedrichstrasse is not interesting for visitors with a smaller budget. Window-Shopping and getting inspired can be a lot of fun in this part of Berlin.
Name: Shops in the Friedrichstraße
Opening-Hours: Most shops from 10.00 – 20.00
Public Transport: Station Friedrichstrasse
Website: No official website
Amount of shops: 50-70
Example of shops: Hugo Boss, Galeries Lafayette, Escada, Gucci, Breitling, Emporio Armani, Dussmann Kulturkaufhaus and more
7. Schlossstrasse (Boulevard Berlin)
The last name in the list of shopping areas in Berlin is the Schlossstrasse. Compared to the other shopping areas, this shopping area is located a little further from the center. Steglitz is 12,5km away from Alexanderplatz but can be easily reached by public transport. During the weekends it can actually be a smart move to stay away from the crowded places in the city. Besides some shops outside in the Schlossstraße, there is also a shopping mall called Berlin Boulevard in this area. It offers brands like G-Star, Mexx, Zara, Hollister and many more.
Less touristic part of Berlin
Just like all the other malls in this article, the Boulevard Berlin offers a small foodcourt with the usual fastfood-options. The parking in this part of Berlin is a bit easier than in the center so if you want to travel by car this shopping mall could be a good option.
Name: Boulevard Berlin
Address: Schloßstraße 10, 12163 Berlin
Opening-Hours: 10.00 – 20.00
Public Transport: Schlossstrasse
Website: Website Boulevard Berlin
Amount of shops: +/- 90
Amount of shops: G-Star, Levi’s, Zara, H&M, Mexx, Hollister, Only, Gerry Weber, Karstadt, Pandora, Desigual and more
Frequently asked questions about shopping in Berlin
Below we have listed some frequently asked questions to make sure nothing stands in the way of you and the shops in Berlin. If you have any additional questions, just leave a comment.
Unfortunately the shops in Berlin are only allowed to open their doors on 8 Sundays per year. If you do not want to wait for these shopping sundays, you can always go to Hauptbahnhof: There are a bunch of shops like Esprit, Douglas, Tamaris and Tom Tailor which are open every Sunday.
Just like everywhere else you can find many shops with sale in Berlin. Especially when the seasons are changing (August & February), the shops try to get rid of the previous collection and offer large discounts.
Yes, there is the Designer Outlet in Spandau which only offers clothing with discount. It’s like a small village where all shops offer large discounts.
The KaDeWe is the largest department store in Germany and Berlin. In our article about department stores you can read more about the largest stores in Berlin.
If you want to bring something home as a memory of Berlin, you can visit one of the souvenir-shops. Watch out that you do not buy fake parts of the wall or pay too much for your souvenirs. Or just buy them online like we suggest in our article about the nicest souvenirs from Berlin.

Relevant Information for me that I was actually looking for. Thank you very much for sharing this article with us.
Hi! Thanks so much for your sharing. I’m so into flea market and street food. I’ll come to Berlin the 2 first week of January. May I know if there are any places like that in such cold weather?
there are actually still a few Christmas markets in the first week of January. Maybe that would be a great alternative for you?
If not, I would check out the markets at the RAW-Gelände and Mauerpark. They both take place on sundays but check out there Facebook-pages first.
I’ve to Berlin in 2010, seems like ages ago. So now I am planning to visit Berlin once again for few days, maybe a week in January 2019. So many places to see, so many thinks to do…I also would like to catch some sales. When do they start? Last week of January?
time flies but good that you are coming back now!
If it has to be January, I think the last week is the best choice for having guaranteed sales.
I am visiting from Egypt.
I have two questions:
1-Which mall is the one with shops offering affordable prices? is it the KaDeWe department?
2-I wear veil “headcover” and i am a little worried about safety cause of racism. what are the places i should be avoiding?
Thank you for taking the time to reply to all those who visited your website 🙂
greetings from Egypt
thanks for the comment.
1. KaDeWe is not a shopping mall, it’s a department store. I would also not describe their prices as very affordable.
2. Unfortunately I cannot answer that question because I have never experienced racism like that or heard someone about it. I have seen it in the news but cannot point out a specific area where the changes are larger that it happens.
Hope that helps a bit anyway. Have a good time in Berlin.
Hi, im travelling to Berlin in june can you please tell me the best places to find vintage and second hand clothes stores?
a great place to visit if you like second-hand clothing would be Humana. There is one on walking distance from Alexanderplatz.
Just google it and you will find it.
I am Surafel from Ethiopia visiting Berlin.Thanks for your Recommendations.
I was looking for a place where i can buy loud speakers(used or New), if you know a place other than Saturn and media M.
thanks for your comment. You can have a look in one of the department stores, they have speakers as well.
Good luck and have fun with shopping.
Hi.Will be visiting Berlin in second week of December.Would you advise some inexpensive (branded)shops wherein i can buy household items, clothes and beers(german made).Also would you be able to advise some knowledgeable local guide who can show and brief me about the historic places in Germany in english and their charges.
The first two things can be bought in the larger department stores. Homemade beers can be bought close to Ostkreuz, at Strassenbrau.
I am not really sure what the prices of the guides are but Google will be able to help you there.
Hi… Good recommendations!
How about Flea markets? Are there any?
there are still flea markets in October but less than in the summer.
You could have a look in Mauerpark or at the Rathaus in Schöneberg. But it is probably best to check their website out before you go, just to be sure!
I will be visiting Berlin from the 22nd October to the 25th October. I will be staying in the Kruezberg area at Suite Novotel Potzdamer. Could you pls let me know any cheap shopping areas near about that?
Also, wanted to know would the weather be very cold there? What kind of woollens do you recommend?
the public transport in Berlin is awesome so you will be able to reach almost all shopping areas in this article within 15-30 minutes. The closest one would probably be Alexa.
Regarding the weather: It can be quite cold in October so I would definitely take a solid jacket and some warm jumpers.
I am visiting Berlin from 5th to 8th October. I want to know more information about outlet malls for branded shopping. Also if I could get some guidance about the night life since i am travelling solo.
there are plenty of discounts in all shopping-areas described in the article. You can also visit the outlet in Spandau if you really want cheap things.
About the nightlife: Check out our article with the best parties in Berlin. The events for next months will be online by the end of this month.
hi looking for big shopping stores in germany like walmart in america
you might want to take a look in one of the following department stores.
I’m looking for Berlin’s more highend and expensive stores, where would then be the best place to shop?
go to the area around Friedrichstraße, there are plenty of high-end stores.
Go to the KuDamm in W Berlin for a much better high end selection than Friedrichstrasse.
I’m looking for some cool decor shops in Berlin, like Flying Tiger or Ikea. Anyone mind sharing some places? Thanks!
There are several Ikea’s in Berlin. I am not sure where you are staying but you can find all of them on Google Maps.
You can find Flying Tiger at Alexanderplats next to Primark.
Hi. Planning to visit Berlin this weekend. Do you think Winterschlussverkauf 2016/2017 will have already started? Or will that be too early? Many thanks!

If you really want big discounts, you could also check The designer Outlet in Spandau.
Have fun shopping in Berlin 🙂
Seems all Bench stores in Berlin, Germany, are gone !!??!!
The old one on Rosenthaler Strasse 50 is gone
The one that (according to the Internet) is suppose to be in ALEXA shopping center – is not there
Anybody who knows some real facts – please advice as to the whereabouts of Bench Berlin ???
Please advise all and to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
There is only a Bench outlet close to Wustermark.
Visit the website of Bench, go to the bottom and search for shops in Berlin.
When in your opinion will start Winterschlussverkauf 2016/2017, because on official site they suggest that from 30.01.2017 until half of Feburary. Is it “safe” from sales point of view go to Berlin on 4th-5th of Feburary.. it is not too late ?
I guess the best deals are already gone by then but you will probably still find some discounted articles.
If you need pretty common sizes, it might be better to visit Berlin earlier.
Hi!very useful website,thanks!
Planning first time to visit Berlin , when start Christmas sales like boxing days in UK?

It all depends on the type of product you are looking for as well.
Im goin to visit Berlin in January and i want to shop schwibbogen. Is there any shopping center where they are selling those? In what shopping center it is good to make shoppings for the kids?
thats a tough question. I never bought these myself so am not sure where to buy them.
You might find them in the KaDeWe, which is located at Kurfürstendamm. Other big department stores like Galaria Kaufhof might also have them.
Shopping for the kids is probably best at Alexa or Mall of Berlin.

I am going to Berlin October 2016 with my kids, 17 and 22 years old. They are interested in Vintage Shops. Where are the best area in Berlin for this ?

I’m planning on travel to Berlin next august.. I want to do some shopping but also would like to have an idea about how cheap/or expensive can be comparing with the USA , any opinion about it .. Thank you very much ur article is great !!
the big brands will probably be about the same price but there are also a lot of smaller brands which sell nice pieces for a reasonable price.
I am originally from the Netherlands and the clothes are about the same price there compared to Berlin.
Good day Job!
I and husband will be travelling to Berlin this coming early October. where can I find the branded items outlet since we just have a limited time due to husband got all day conference meeting for 5days straight. Seems been a tough and difficulties to arrange time. appreciate your reply with many thanks 🙂
the best would probably be to visit the Outlet in Spandau, but if you do not have time for that I would suggest visiting a “normal” shopping-mall and enjoying the sales there. There will normally be some sale in the beginning of October.
Hi, there is a shop on Karl Liebknecht Strasse where are offered things to the kitchen, bathroom or even woman’s bag with a great and funny design. This shop is on the corner near to the Aquarium Berlin. Do you know what is the name of this shop? Thanks!
I guess you mean Möbel Weber?
Hi job! is there a PRADA outlet in Berlin? Thank you
I never been there myself but the website states that the Designer Outlet in Spandau is offering that.
cheap cloths for kids where i can buy
probably best to visit Primark at Alexanderplatz.
Hi Job. Could you please help me find a store where I can buy commercial toys in Berlin?? It’s been difficult to find a place apart from Berlin Mall (I couldn’t find what I was looking for there). Many thanks!
you can probably find some in the big department stores. Maybe visit Alexanderplatz and go into Galeria Kaufhof and if you cannot find something there try the top-floor of the Alexa.
Hope that helps!
Do you know the closest shopping place to the Freie university of Berlin?
sorry for the late reply, your comment was hidden somehow.
The best place to go would be the Boulevard Berlin. It is mentioned in the article.

you could walk to Alexanderplatz and visit the Galeria Kaufhof.
My daughter is going to Berlin with her university for 10 days from 1 July till 10 July. She is interested in cheap shopping places. Are there any good discount schemes during this period?
in July the real discount-season has not started yet. The summer-Sale will start in the end of August/beginning of September. If you want sale anyway you could always check the the designer outlet in Spandau.
i am going to Berlin between 19th July to 12th August, will there be sales and where are the best sales’ destinations?!
the best sales-destination is probably in Spandau but there might be some sales in the other shopping malls in Berlin as well. The big summer-sale start in August.
Thank you so much for helping people like myself in useful information. And I wish I had seen your post and most responses before embarking on my Europe tour. Next stop is Berlin. And it’s tomorrow. Trouble is am there for 3 days 23-26th. I can change my flight to add more more day if necessary so 27th. is there anything I can do to have a good time shopping/tours sightseeing am alone 35 female. Many thanks in advance.
In the article I mentioned the websites of the shopping malls. I would suggest that you check them out and see when they are opened because you are in Berlin during the Christmas period.
Some of the christmas markets will also be open during the next couple of days so also have a look there.
Hi! Really loved your post, will definitely check these places out. I will be going to Berlin sometime this month and i would like to know if you knew around when the winter sales are starting? Is it before christmas? after christmas? before new years or after?
also, do you know if there is a victorias secret located anywhere in Berlin?
thanks in advance! Happy holidays 🙂
The real sale will start in January. There are some small sales now but the larger discounts can be found after the second week of January.
Sorry, I cannot help you with a Victoria Secret Shop but Google will most likely know the answer 🙂
Have fun shopping!
We are visiting in Berlin 30.12- 05.01.2016 so right after Christmas! Could you tell me more about opening hours? 🙂 On 31.12 are the shops open for examle till 18:00 o clock or something? 🙂 Then 1.1.2016 I assume all the shops are closed but what about the sunday on 3.1.2016 ? Are all the shops closed or open? 🙂 Is there any places open on that sunday.
Thank you alot!!
The shops are normally not open on Sundays and I do not expect them to be open on the 1st and 3rd of January.
But I just read on the website of Mall of Berlin (Potdamer Platz) that the shopping Mall is open on the 31st of December (till 16.00) and also on the 3rd of January.
Thank you for this.
I’ll be in Berlin on Christmas till after new year’s eve.
was wondering , are there any good laser hair removal clinics there ?
and also good places to shop for antiques and souvenirs?
Great that you are visiting Berlin. There are a lot of souvenir-shops and also some spots which sell antiques.
About the Hair-Removal Clinics: I have no clue about that, maybe have a look in Google?
Great article and i also heard about designer outlet..is it worth the visit?
Thanks for the compliment. Here you can find a full article about the designer outlet. I personally liked it a lot.
Best of luck!

Best of luck!
Hi, thank you for your article. I might be in Berlin for 1 or 2 week from 7. t0 20. August. I would like to ask, if it’s still the sale season in Berlin? And normally how many percent off?
And which place would be the best place for me if I want to buy casual clothes like F21, H&M, Adidas etc.?
Normally August is a good month for Sales. Some of them will be up to 50% off.
Most shopping malls in Berlin will offer the brands you mentioned.
Hi, will be visiting berlin with my son, next week and will be staying at armano grand central hotel, do you know what is the nearest shopping area and what time do they normally close? Thanks, cheers angie

Good luck and have fun!
My boyfriend and I are traveling to Berlin from 17-20.december. We would like to experience the many Christmas markets like Berlin is so famous for. Do you have any tips that fits for two 21 year olds?
You will probably like all of the markets but if I have to suggest one for young people I would say the one at Alexanderplatz next to Alexa.
The cool thing is that you can combine three christmas-markets which are all located close to eachother there.
What sightseeing tour to see main attractions in Berlin would be recommended for two days and good restaurants such as Indian or others
It is probably easiest to start at Alexanderplatz and walk to Reichstag. You can see Berliner Dom and Brandenburger Tor on the way.
I would like to inquire about the top sales of the year in Berlin. When I should come?
The best moment to come for big discounts is probably January.
Also have a look at this article: Designer Outlet Spandau
i am planning to travel to Berlin for 4 days on 19th of January. There will be sales on the shops?
Yes, normally there will be a lot of sales after New-Years.
Hi, do you know when are usual “sale periods” in Berlin? We were visiting Berlin in June and would like to come back in autumn/winter but in the period of sales :). Thank you very much!
Thanks for your comment.
The biggest sale can be found around January and August. In Autumn it will be a bit harder but you can still find plenty of discounts in the shopping centers mentioned in my article.
Thanks for the article, it’s very exhaustive and useful. I just wanted to point out an error: I believe it’s Hackescher Markt, not Hackischer Markt
Hi Berlin-Enjoy, We will be in Berlin tomorrow on August 1. 2015. Could you tell me what to do and where to go this coming Sunday?
Very sorry for the late reply. I was not at home the whole weekend so did not see your comment before now.
Hope you found something interesting to do anyway!
Hey, i was wondering where can i buy braun products , drugstore makeup and jeans with affordable prices near konstanzer straße ?
Thanks for your reply. I am not sure where you can buy these products but shopping-malls like Alexa and Mall of Berlin should normally have these.
Hey, i wanted to ask where I can find Urban Outfitters, American Apparel and Brandy Melville shops? Are they near centre of the city?
Urban Outfitters and American Apparel can both be found at Hackischer Markt. Unfortunately I have never heard of the last shop you mentioned.
Good luck with shopping!
Thanks for the article it is really good.

Also, what is the weather like during this period of the year?
Your help is much appreciated.
Thanks for your comment. From Tiergarten you can easily reach Alexanderplatz but also almost walk to Kurfurstendamm.
Most shops are closed on Sunday, there are special days on which they are open.
The weather is great right now. Around 30 degrees.
Best wishes and have fun!
Thank you, very much. I want to buy a warm down jacket , waterproof, that covers until my knees and keep me away from the cold. North face can be a good idea. Congratulations for the great website.

There is one in the Alexa on the top-floor. I guess you will find something cool there.
Best of luck!
Hi. I am from Brazil. I will be in Berlin next winter and I am worried about the cold weather. Please, where can I find very, very warm clothes? I don’t mind to pay for the warmest coat. What are the best places to find it? Thank you, so much.
Depends on the style you want. There is a Quicksilver and Nortface-shop in the Alexa but there are also plenty of good brands in the Mall of Berlin.
Hi, I’ll be at Berlin this weekend, wonder if Alexa and KadeWe open on Sunday?

Most shops in Berlin are closed on Sunday. The KadeWe is closed and in Alexa only the Foodcourt is open…
Have fun in Berlin!

It would be best for you to go to the shopping center Berlin Boulevard.

You will probably find some in the shopping-centers Mall of Berlin and Alexa. KaDeWe might also sell them.

I’ve just moved to Berlin for a few days and currently living in Marzahn. I want to find a nearby place that sell cheap baby products like clothes, cribs, strollers, baby and mother care products and so on. Could you suggest any place?
Welcome to Berlin! Unfortunately I am not very familiar with the are Marzahn so I will not be very helpful in this case.
Maybe you can check on Google directly? Or use the Public Transport to reach one of the centers in this article?
I want to travel on 5.4.2015 to Berlin and want to know where i have to visit to have good remain on berlin in this 3 days.
I am with my family .
Hi Alan, thanks for the comment.
Berlin has a very good public transport system. I live here for more than 3 years now and never had to wait for a train or subway longer than 5-6 minutes.
Mitte and Prenzlauer Berg are probably areas you would have a good time with your family.
I will be in Berlin on the 24th and 25th of April … I will be staying in the Heart oft he City East Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg .. can you recommend good shopping spots that are reasonably priced? (General shopping, jeans shoes etc.)
Also, what is the weather like during this period of the year?
Your help is much appreciated.
The weather should be fine in the end of April. It has been good the last couple of weeks already so normally that should be fine.
There are no big discounts around that time of the year. But you could easily get to shopping centers like Alexa and the new Mall of Berlin.
Hi, I will be in Berlin on march. Is there any clothes shopping center with sales and discounts in this time?
Thanks in advance.
The biggest sale is in January/February and after the summer but there will probably still be some discounts in the big shopping-malls.
Check the new Mall of Berlin out, there are 300 shops.
I am travelling to Berlin in 2 weeks, I would like to visit stores where I can find scented candles like Yankee candles. Ideally, I would like to visit a variety of gift and home deco stores, department stores but also garden centres. Could you suggest a few retailers in the town centre and/or around Berlin?
Sorry for my late reply, I have been away for a while.
That is a difficult question: There is a large garden-center close to station Ostbahnhof. Maybe have a look over there?
Best wishes and good luck!
Hi , Im from Adidas India. My team and I are travelling to Berlin to do some key store visits of Adidas Sports Performance, Adidas Originals & Neo . Could you recommend the biggest stores of the same.
Thanks in advance. 🙂
Thanks for your comment. There is a big adidas-store close to Hackischer Markt.
Hi! I am going to H2 Hotel Berlin Alexanderplatz with my class in april. We will stay for 4 days. Are there some places near by that we should visit? And where can we find shops like Zara, H&M, Urban outfitters, Mac cosmetics, Mango and Victorias secret (if those shops are in berlin) ? 🙂
Alexanderplatz is very central and you will be able to visit a lot of cool attractions. The Fernsehturm is probably the first one 🙂
I do not know about all these shops but there is a shopping center close to Alexanderplatz: It is called Alexa.
Hi, i will be in Germany during April,
where can i find sports direct shop, and Primark ?
There is a Primark on Alexanderplatz now. Across the street is Alexa and there are plenty of sport-shops.
Have a good time!
Thank you very much for the article.
I will be in Berlin during 10-15 March 2015. Is there any sale that time?
where can I buy reasonable price clothes, electronics, cosmetics and kitchen staff?
If you are going to be in Berlin for 5 days you can see several shopping centers.
There will not be a big sale, that one is going on as we speak. But there will be enough discounts I guess.
Please can you tell me where is the biggest Vero Moda store in Berlin?
I am not completely sure, I do not shop in Vero Moda that often 😉
But i guess there should be a large one in the Mall of Berlin.
Between 25-29/12 what dates are shopping centers closed for holiday?
It depends on the shopping center Tal. But during christmas most shops are closed. After christmas you will be able to shop till 20.00 in most case.
You can also check the websites which can be found in this article.
Hello, I’m Mint and I come from Phuket, Thailand
Thank you for your article!
Can I know when and where is the sale will be in berlin?
Thanks in advance! :’)
The biggest sale will start in the end of January.
Hi all. could you please help me to know about near shopping center to the address; Friedrichstraße 151, 10117 Berlin . I will be there in 26th of November. and is this sale time in Berlin?
The nearest shopping center is the one in Friedrichstraße. It will be very close to your accomodation.
But from station Friedrichstraße you will be also able to reach Hackischer Markt (1 stop with S-Bahn) Shopping-Mall Alexa (two stops with s-bahn) very easily.
I’am living in Bernburg(Saale) and I planned to visit Berlin in December. Indeed, I would like to know the most important historical places and museums there and if 2 days iare enough or no, also I would like to know if there is any sale at that period and which are the suitable mall or shops .
Normally there is no large sale in December but some shops will have some minor promotions.
Two days will be hard if you want to do shopping and see some nice attractions but it is possible if you get up early and use a tight schedule.
Hey, I’m planning to visit Berlin in January with my wife and kid. We are coming from Norway, and this article really helped us to plan some shopping. Would like to know if there is any specific sales during January.
In January I expect some after christmas-sales. It depends on the week in January though.
Hope you have a great time!
I will be coming to visit Berlin 2nd week of November. I am from South Africa and I’m addicted to shoes, perfumes and hand bags. Where can I shop for them and what time do shops close?
Shops are open till 20.00 most of the time. Alexa would be a great location and there is also a new shopping Mall close to Potsdamer Platz. I will update this article soon with that location.
Hope you can find what you need!
Hello, me and my Girlfriend are coming to Berlin from the UK for NYE! We arrive on the 30th and we’re staying until the 4th! Can you recommend any where for Trainers, more Adidas Originals?
Thanks in advance! 🙂
Great that you coming to Berlin. There is an Adidas Shop at Hackischer Markt.
My husband stay in Berlin now and he needs buy things for babies, toys of Fisher Price and accesories of Avent. People recommended Kadewe.. Do you think that is the best place for buy? Will He find all things there?
The Kadewe is defenitely a great suggestion. Also Galeria Kaufhof at ALexanderplatz has a lot of products for babies. Across the street you can find shopping mall Alexa for more shops.
Hi, Thanks for the article
Its my first time to visit berlin, Where do you recommand me to stay in which area ?
A place in the middle of the city where everything is down and near , clubs, bars and shopping streets ?
This all depends a lot on your preferences. How much do you want to spend and what are your plans?
Most people like Friedrichshain because there are many great clubs and the area is very “alive”. The great thing about Berlin is that you can reach every corner of the city in about 30 minutes with public transport. So in general I anything in Friedrichshain, Kreuzberg, Prenzlauer Berg or Mitte is fine. Good luck!
I am planning to travel to Berlin 20th Sept.
I have been in Berlin twice but have never found a shopping street like other European countries, where there is many shops and no cars.
Can you recoomend the one in Berlin.
Thanks a lot
Thanks for your comment.
The suggestions in this article are some great spots to do shopping in Berlin. I agree that many other big cities have their shops more centrally together but a shopping-mall like Alexa will give you a few hours of shopping-fun for sue.
Hi, I am in Berlin Aug 31- Sep 4 and i am hoping to do some Shopping. I am staying in Mitte will it be easy to get to Kurfürstendamm and Friedrichstrasse from my Hotel? Also looking to go to Hard Rock Cafe
Hi Charlotte, thanks for your comment.
Yes it will not be difficult. You can take the S-Bahn to Zoologischer Garten and this will take you about 15-20 minutes. From there it is about 5 minutes walk.
The Hard Rock Cafe is located in at Kürfurstendamm so it should be quite easy to combine that with some shopping!
Hey,, I’m from Australia and was just wondering where a good spot or best shop is for street wear, eg skate wear, indi button ups and surf wear .. Thanks
I know that there are a few cool shops on the topfloor of the Alexa. One is Quicksilver and I think also a Northface and one other shop which sells that kind of clothing.
Maybe have a look in the full list of shops in the article.
Good luck man!
Hi, could you recommend any good skateboarding shops in Berlin and maybe their address if possible.
Titus is one of the most famous ones. It is located at the Karl-Liebknecht-Straße 9.
I am in the United States and would like to purchase a gift card for the Gerry Weber store in Berlin for a friend who live in Berlin. I cannot read German so have been unsuccessful in doing a search on line for this service. Any help would be appreciatd.
I would suggest typing “Gerry Weber gutschein karte kaufen” in Google and pressing at the House of Gerry Weber link. Than you can just put the Gift Card in your “Warenkorb” and pay.
You can also put a full URL in Google-Translate and it will translate a whole website for you.
I am in Berlin at the end of the week and looking to do some street shopping for casual clothes. Where would I find the big Puma store. Also would there be places on sale around Mitte.
Thanks for your comment.
There is sale in many shops in Berlin at the moment. If you really want to shop and not much more I would suggest you visit Alexa: Three floor full of shops and many interesting brands.
There are three puma-stores in Berlin but none of them is close to my suggestions. Maybe visit the one at Alte Potsdamer Straße 7, it is not far from Mitte by public transport.
I booked flight to Berlin in the beginning of August. Being male in ~30 years, I am surprisingly tough in shopping clothes, shame on me 😀 Anyways, what do you think of this so called outlet area outside Berlin? Have you been there, is it worth it? (good discounts etc.)
I mean this one:
That outlet is quite cool but in August you will find a lot of Sale in Berlin anyway. Maybe you should visit some of the places in this article and if you do not find what you are looking for you can always visit the Outlet. It is a bit out of the city and not so easy to reach.
Hello can I know when is the sale will be in berlin?
Hi! Thanks for your comment. The sale will probably start during this month and will continue till the end of August.
Thanks for your article! It helps me a lot. 🙂
Would you recommend some shopping areas for baby and kid’s clothing plz?
Your comment got stuck in the spambox, my apologies for the late reply.
I would sugesst you visit Alexa or Boulevard Berlin. You will defenitely find some baby-shops there. Good luck!!!
