KaDeWe Kaufhaus des Westens
KaDeWe in Berlin is one of the largest department stores on the European continent with a sales area of 60,000m² and really gets the adrenaline running in shopping fans. Since its opening in 1907, Kaufhaus des Westens has relied on a selected combination of international brands, German tradition, and luxury and is mentioned in the same breath as its famous siblings, Harrods in London and Galeries Lafayette in Paris.
Shopping and dining at the highest level
On seven floors, KaDeWe is a shopping paradise that leaves nothing to be desired. The products start in the beauty department on the ground floor and continue to the Loft, the world of shoes and bags, to the Home and Living furnishing area on the fourth floor. Fashion enthusiasts will find the latest trends, classics that are never out of fashion, and the creations by renowned designers on an area of 20,000m². The legendary delicatessen department has achieved cult status on the sixth of the seven floors. Gourmet lovers can get their money's worth here, because almost everything you can think of is on offer. Enjoy international specialities, exotic fruits, sushi, traditional Berlin dishes, and a glass of exquisite wine or champagne. Try the delicacies directly at the bar during the gourmet days and round off your visit to KaDeWe with a sweet finale from its own confectionery.
Tradition for generations
The tradition of the KaDeWe dates back to 1907, when Adolf Jandorf opened the luxury department store between Tauentzienstraße and Kurfürstendamm and brought the latest fashion trends from Paris and exotic food from all over the world to Berlin. Since then, the ownership situation has changed from time to time, but the basic concept has always remained the same: exclusive fashion, major brands, the latest fashion trends from all over the world, luxury goods for the discerning, and culinary delights for gourmet lovers are a central theme in the range of the high-end department store. Even the Second World War could not harm the KaDeWe. Although it suffered considerable damage, it was reopened on 3 July 1950 following a complete refurbishment. It is hard to imagine that on the first day of sales alone, 180,000 visitors stormed the sales areas. On average days, the luxury department store today has between 40,000 and 50,000 customers who stay here for up to three hours.
