Department Store of the West - Kaufhaus des Westens (KaDeWe)

At the easternmost tip of the Ku'Damm, directly at Wittenbergplatz, you will find Berlin's largest and most famous department store, the KaDeWe.

It was founded by Adolf Jandorf in a daring undertaking, at a time when West Berlin was still very remote. It was finally opened on March 27, 1907, and the City-West was finally born. Today, KaDeWe is the largest department store in continental Europe with a sales area of 60,000 square meters, a true consumption temple on 7 floors. The respective floors are huge and the upscale products in this superlative store can satisfy everything your heart desires, from cheap to quite expensive, from apples to zippers, here you can find everything. A special attraction is the so-called "Gourmet floor", the second largest food department worldwide. The restaurant area with its glass dome on the 7th floor also offers a beautiful view of Berlin. All in all, it can be said that what you cannot get at the department store of the West you cannot get anywhere else. Here, needs and desires are awakened that one did not know before. You just have to see the KaDeWe on your Berlin visit.
