The Kaufhaus des Westens (Department Store of the West), short: Ka-De-We, is Berlin’s most famous department store and a shopaholic’s paradise. It seems to have everything but a pet store. (Believe me, I checked as I wanted to buy a new leash for our dog.) After an hour or two of shopping around I made the mistake of bringing The Blonde up to the 6th Floor, a vast gigantic food hall that has absolutely every delicacy you ever wanted to try. A few pounds heavier – and I’m not counting shopping bags here, folks – and we finally left the store.
KaDeWe or Kaufhaus des Westens is a mammoth of a department store. Filling most part of a block and then expanding to the neighbouring buildings, the store can provide all the things you need.
There are several floors filled with various stuff, and every floor could easily contain a smallish department store. The basement has cosmetics, bags, belts and other accessories, the next few floors up have fashions and the rest of the floors have home stuff, sport items and others. There is also a bookstore in the building.
One of the more pecular aspects of shopping experience are the centralised cashiers: there is only one place at a floor to pay your purchases. Navigating to the cashier can be quite annoying, especially if they are renovating the floor and there are stuff obscuring the views.
At the last floor there are cafés and restaurants serving a great variety of specialties to chose from.
It´s really big and even though you don´t buy anything it´s still interesting just to go and take a look.
KaDeWe is one astonishing shopping center that sells almost everything.From roof restaurant have perfect view of city
