A MALL WITH A ZOO VIEW

Where Berlin - - WINTER WONDERS -

Even if you did fit enough sweaters into your suit­case, there’s some­thing about the cold that makes you want to buy more. Whether you need a new win­ter hat or want to out­fit your­self like the ef­fort­lessly chic cre­ative types you’ll see through­out the city, the brand-new Bikini Berlin Mall (Bu­dapester Str. 38-50, www.bikiniber­lin.de) will have what you didn’t even know you were look­ing for. As the world’s first “con­cept mall,” the Bikini Berlin com­plex in­cludes of­fices, a cin­ema, a large win­dow over­look­ing the ba­boon en­clo­sure in the zoo, and, ob­vi­ously, re­tail out­lets. The high­light is a se­ries of mod­u­lar boxes where up-and-com­ing and in­ter­na­tional de­sign­ers can in­tro­duce their looks to Berlin. When you’re all shopped out, es­cape to the rooftop ter­race for an ice-skat­ing break and a hot choco­late.
