    Galleries Lafayette: Top quality

    by croisbeauty Updated Apr 21, 2014

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Friedrichstrasse is lively boulevard and a shopper paradise of Berlin where many boutiques, bars and pubs can be found. Among others there is Galleries Lafayette, huge and architecturally very attractive moll which offers great shopping opportunities. The inside of the building, with its round staircases, looks fascinating especially under the lights. I missed to see the central part of the building with the dome and galleries.

    Galeries Lafayette: A piece of France ... in Berlin

    A piece of France in ... Berlin
    In keeping up Berlins reputation to be a city with a keen sense of style,
    Galeries Lafayette is another occasion for buying elegant, brand-name French designs, expensive perfumes, colognes, shoes, and accessories. There is even a French Library
    where you can find French lecture, from Comic's to scientific works of art.
    In addition and comparable with the "KaDeWe" this store is known for its fabulous basement floor, which features gourmet delights like exotic produce, imported wines, premium meats, and other “delicatessen”
    The building itself is remarkable aswell and is attracting the outlook of the fanciest shopping center in Berlin. Block 207 – between Franzoesische Strasse and Morenstrasse
    The architect used a lot of glass cone-shaped volumes for the façade AND the inner places
    A friend of me told me that it was the last wish of the owner of this concern
    to create and built another Galery like we know "Galeries Lafayette" in Paris

    French SC in Berlin No this is not the erotic museum, this is GL

    Galeries Lafayette: Ultramodern department store

    by nomadig Written Aug 9, 2005

    Galeries Lafayette, located on busy shopping street Friedrichstrasse in Berlin downtown, is really sweet looking department store. Built with a lots of glass and steel, it sets the store apart from the rest of the department stores built in early 20th century.

    The central opening is coated with glass walls, and as it curves like a cigar, you can see the people on the basement restaurant level eating while you are waiting her on the women's level.

    Galeries Lafayette is first and foremost a fashion department store. Most of the levels are dedicated to garments for women, men and children; both classic and contemporary styles are available.

    The basement has a selection of small restaurants and a delicatessen.

    Galeries Lafayette: Departmental store

    The store offers the latest fashions from cult designers such as Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Cardin, yet the design of the building, with its daring glass roof, is equally fashionable. The only problem is that sheets of glass occasionally crash down onto the pavement below!

    Galeries Lafayette: Expensive

    by Linse Written Mar 21, 2014

    You can get a lot of different things but it´s not cheap.
    You can go below to where the food is, it´s affordable or you can just browse and look at all the different things.
