Europa Cen­ter

This shop­ping mall on the Ku'damm of­fers a range of goods from over 70 shops. Check out the in­ge­nious wa­ter clock de­signed by Bernard Git­ton in 1982. www.europa- cen­ter- ber­lin.de. Ever since 1904, when Al­bert Krigler launched his line of ar­ti­sanal per­fumes, the Krigler brand has been syn­ony­mous with unique lux­ury fra­grances made with the finest in­gre­di­ents sourced around the world. In 1905, Krigler's orig­i­nal shop on Unter den Lin­den wit­nessed the flour­ish­ing of Ber­lin's leg­endary mu­sic and cabaret scene, and in 1909 his scents went abroad when he opened a new bou­tique in the south of France, where he be­came the per­fumer of F. Scott Fitzger­ald, Hemingway, and Pi­casso. Over the years, his fra­grances have been ap­pre­ci­ated by celebri­ties such as John F. Kennedy, Audrey Hep­burn, Grace Kelly, and Coco Chanel. Af­ter more than a cen­tury, Ben Krigler, Al­bert's fifth- gen­er­a­tion de­scen­dant, brought the Krigler sto­ried legacy back to Ber­lin with a per­fume bou­tique right on Unter den Lin­den, where it all be­gan. Krigler, Ho­tel Ad­lon. Unter den Lin­den 77. T: 030 80494144. www.krigler.eu.
