Shop­ping Stop

Where Berlin - - SHOPPING -

Named af­ter a Prus­sian gen­eral who stormed the

French gar­ri­son at Wit­ten­berg in 1814, Tauentzien­straße, in the com­mer­cial cen­ter of West

Ber­lin, is one of the city's most pop­u­lar shop­ping des­ti­na­tions. Stand­ing grand at the out­set is KaDeWe

(p. 27), the largest depart­ment store in con­ti­nen­tal Europe, which spreads out over seven lux­u­ri­ous floors. On the cor­ner of Nürn­berger Straße is the Asian ap­parel sen­sa­tion UNIQLO (p. 30), now stock­ing qual­ity ba­sics in ur­ban hubs around the globe. Other stores dot­ting the street in­clude fash­ion la­bel Peek & Clop­pen­burg (No. 19) and the flag­ship LEGO Store (No. 20). The rel­a­tively short street cul­mi­nates at Bre­itschei­d­platz, dom­i­nated by the bombed- out Kaiser Wilhelm Me­mo­rial Church (p. 36), but the shop­ping con­tin­ues down the ad­join­ing and fa­mous

Kur­fürs­ten­damm boule­vard. See www.where­trav­eler.com/ber­lin for more
