Where to go shopping in Berlin




Mall of Berlin

The new shopping destination with 300 shops, a wide range of high-end fashion labels and Germany’s largest Food Court.


One of the most famous squares in Berlin as well as the largest in Germany. The first shopping facilities opened up here as far back as the 19th century. After the Berlin Wall came down, the Centrum Warenhaus was converted into the modern Galeria Kaufhof. In 2007, the Alexa Shopping Centre with its 180 shops and 17 restaurants was opened, followed two years later by its Die Mitte counterpart.


From the “Golden Twenties” to the architecture of the New Berlin – Friedrichstraße is one of the city’s main arteries. Check out Dussmann the KulturKaufhaus (Culture Department Store). Spread over five floors, it offers everything you could desire in culture: books, music, film, games and audio books, gift articles, and much more.

Hackescher Markt

You’ll find plenty of boutiques and designer shops here and also international fashion chain shops like American Apparel and Urban Outfitters. Be prepared to spend quite a bit of time exploring this area.

Area around Boxhagener Platz

Friedrichshain has a good number of small, fashionable boutiques that stock Berlin-based goodies. There are also quite a few second-hand and vintage stores to pick-up something pre-loved at a bargain price.


Bergmannstraße is a street filled with one cute shop after another. Interspersed with cafes and VERY good food stops, this is definitely a great way to spend a day.


While Oranienstraße is known for its bars and nightlife, the day brings to light quite a few interesting shops for clothes and crafts.

Schönhauser Allee

You will see the big mall at the station, but if you take any of the small streets alongside it, you will find tons and tons of shops selling everything your heart can desire.

Sunday Flea market at Mauerpark

Small designer stalls, vintage clothes, food from around the world AND an open-air karaoke? Is it the weekend yet?
