Shop ‘Til You Drop

Where Berlin - - SHOPPING -

Keen on a shop­ping day trip with guar­an­teed bar­gains? Designer Out­let Ber­lin, just 30 min­utes from the city cen­ter and built in the style of a quaint vil­lage, has more than 80 bou­tiques sell­ing sam­ples and last sea­son’s col­lec­tions at up to 70 per­cent off the orig­i­nal price. From designer la­bels Hugo Boss, Calvin Klein, and Joop! to sports brands such as Nike and Adi­das and popular fash­ion like De­sigual and Swarovski, the com­plex is a shop­ping par­adise. Make it a fam­ily af­fair with the chil­dren’s adventure play area and am­ple cafés and restau­rants. Get­ting there is easy: Take the re­gional RE4 train de­part­ing from Pots­damer Platz and Haupt­bahn­hof or, on Fri­days and Satur­days, jump on the shut­tle bus leav­ing twice daily from the Ku’damm for €10 round trip. Once there, take your time: Shops are open from 10am un­til at least 7pm.
