    Humana: Charity Shop

    by alancollins Updated Jun 3, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Most of the Charity Shops that you find in the UK are small retail outlets that follow a similar pattern. During a wet afternoon I decided to give the Humana Shop at Alexanderplatz a try. The shop is huge in comparison to UK Charity shops and is more like a department store. The largest amount of goods on sale is women’s clothing. They are all carefully laid out for inspection on rails with plenty of room to move about. So if you want to kill some time and you like looking in charity shops give one of these shops a try, there is a dozen around Berlin. The shop is 1300 square metres in size with 25,000 items available for sale.

    What to buy: Clothing for Women

    Alexa: Alexa Shopping Centre

    by alancollins Updated Jun 3, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Alexa Shopping Centre opened its doors on the 12th September 2007. It contains 175 shops which mainly sell clothes, though it does have a huge electrical shop which is spread out over 4 floors and there is also a large food court with free Wi-Fi. The outside has been described as ugly though the inside looks light and airy.

    Alexa: Alexa shopping mall

    by Raimix Written Sep 21, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It is one of the main shopping centers in Berlin's center. For sure, the main thing here was to find food shop for some snacks, drinks. I should tell, food shops in Berlin center looks a bit hidden, and not too many of them (sure, locals know more).

    Anyway, this shopping mall near Alexanderplatz has really big variety of shops, from clothes to food.

    Alexa is just nearby the town square.

    Quartier 206: Very expensive

    by croisbeauty Updated May 29, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You need one day of visit only to find out where are the most exclusive and the most expensive shops in Berlin, in Friedrichstrasee. Quarties 206 is situated in ultra modern building which is even much more attractive in its interiors. This mall carries international high labels products, such as cloths, shoes, jewelry&watches, designed furniture, cosmetics and accessories.
    Quartier 206 has almost harlequin - deco interior with spiral staircaseswhich leeds up and down in between luxury and very expensive shops.

    What to buy: Here you can obtained extremely expensive cloths and shoes designed by worlds leading designers, such as Gucci, Moschino, Trussardi, Armani and many others. Most of the visitors coming here just for a window shopping, or maybe my impression was wrong. Anyhow, I haven't noticed too many customers who are buying something.

    Arkaden: relaxing shopping and dining

    by croisbeauty Updated May 27, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Most tourists and visitors or Berlin prefer Arkaden for shopping, rather then those big malls in the outskirts of the town. Arkaden has three levels in one narrow straight block and therefore easy to walk around without being too overhelmed or tired. It is place where most of your shopping needs can be obtained. Arkaden is spot for a lovely time, leisure, fun, relawing or just window shopping. Besides colths and food it offers exciting corners and unusually good Italian gelato (ice-cream).
    Arkaden is stacked with food joints of all kinds; sushi, pizza, wurst, fish or bagels. Many known and unexpensive brands could be find here, such as Zara, H&M, Mango, Benetton...etc.

    Dussmann: A great place to browse

    by alancollins Written May 26, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Dussmans is an interesting shop to visit. The shop covers 7,000 square metres and is spread over five floors. It sells a huge selection of books, audio books, CDs, DVDs, Games and stationary. It has a large selection of books in English, both non-fiction and fiction, and if you are looking for a local guide book or a map, this is the place to visit. Besides all the regular guide books for Berlin you see in your local bookshops, Dussmanns stocks books about the Berlin Wall and places to visit off the beaten track which you do not normally see. The shop has comfy armchairs and if you are really cheeky like me, you can sit down and thumb your way through the various books. The shop is open from 10am to midnight - Monday to Saturday.

    Schloss-Strassen-Center: Steglitz mall, cosy and little crowded

    by MD2nd Updated Apr 25, 2013

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In comparison to the many of Berlin's malls whether it's Alexa at Potsdamer Platz or Europa Center at Kurfuerstendamm etc. this mall, located in Berlin's Steglitz, is rather modest, cosy and very little crowded: To me that's basic, no crowds when ever I need to shop for what ever. Speaking of basic, every thing basic does SCC provid anyway. And beyond basic too. What would that be? Electronics? Jewelry? Toys and games? It's all there. Also SCC is greatly connected with different subways and buses. Since Berlin's Steglitz is a rather quiet and lovely district anyway, this mall fits there very nice.

    Gropiuspassagen: The Largest Shopping Centre in Berlin

    by alancollins Written Jan 15, 2013

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This was the first place I visited on my recent trip to Berlin. If you travel there by subway the station is conected to the shopping mall, so there was no walking through the snow. This shopping centre is reputed to be the largest in Berlin, which was one of the reasons for my visit. It was decked out for the Christmas period with lights and tree etc. There are over 160 shops covering an area of 85,000 square metres as well as a multiplex cinema and fitness centre. I tried a coffee in a well known chain of shops and was delighted to be given a chocolate St Nicholas figure as a treat, before braving the snow outside.

    Tempelhofer Hafen: Enjoy the views

    by alancollins Written Jan 7, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Tempelhofer Hafen is a new shopping centre next to the Teltow Canal. The shopping centre opened in 2009 and it has over 70 stores and restaurants. The surrounding area and Harbour has been redeveloped from former abandoned warehouses and looks attractive. On a warmer day it would have been nice to have sat outside over looking the harbour looking at the boats and ducks.

    SHOPPERS'PARADISE!: KURFUERSTENDAMM

    by draguza Written Jul 29, 2012

    Kurfürstendamm dates back to the 16th century when Electoral Prince Joachim II constructed a path connecting his palace on Unter den Linden with his hunting lodge in Grunewald forest. In the late 19th century Bismarck transformed the simple street into a prestigious boulevard lined by stunning town houses. Destroyed during the Second World War and rebuilt in the ensuing decades, Kurfürstendamm is no longer the beauty it once was. Yet 'Ku'damm'—as Berliners affectionately call it—is still a symbol of wealth and prosperity.

    What to buy: The Kurfurstendamm, or Kudamm as locals say, is Berlin's answer to London's Oxford Street – this beautiful tree lined boulevard is packed with fancy shops and cafes, Christmas markets in winter and blossoms in spring. At the centre of the avenue stands the Gedächtniskirche or Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church that suffered severe bombing during WWII Allied raids. It has been left in ruins as a memory of the past. The magnificent department store KaDeWe would rival Harrods or Bloomingdale's with its crystal chandeliers, famous designers and scrumptious food hall, serving everything from champagne breakfasts to Marmite.

    Various: A Tobacco Run - Pretty Much Literally

    by johngayton Written Jul 29, 2012

    Those that know me can't help but notice that I am an invertebrate (sic) smoker and my tobacco of choice is the French Gauloises Hand Rolling. Here in the UK this is only available from specialist tobacco shops and is very heavily taxed and so I have been making tobacco runs to Europe about three times a year in order to take advantage of the much lower prices.

    I used to go to France - usually just a quick in-and-out to Calais by ferry - but the French kept putting up their prices and the trip was becoming less economical with each visit. I therefore switched to Amsterdam where I could fly in and out from my local airport and this had the advantage off keen prices and made for some fun trips with usually a night or two spent in what is one of my favourite cities.

    The Dutch though started following the UK and France's lead and kep squeezing the taxation and once again my runs became less cost-effective. I now go to Belgium regularly, to the tobacco-town of Adinkerke, as here I get very good prices, an enjoyable visit (places like Gent, Ostend, Brussels etc) and if I book well ahead on Eurostar I can get relatively cheap train tickets.

    This time round, because I'd recently changed jobs and am now here on my Island (Lundy), I'd gotten my Belgian runs out-of-sync and needed an interim shopping trip. I had already booked a holiday for my attendance at our VT Eurmeet in Bergamo in late May (2012) and had tagged a visit to Berlin to get some more pics of the "East Side Gallery" on to the end of the meet.

    I knew that German tobacco shops stocked my particular brand and that the prices, whilst not as low as those in Adinkerke, would be reasonable. The only problem was to find a shop which carried enough stock to make it a one-stop purchase - I needed about two kilos. Asking around friends here I got a couple of reccommendations but these looked to be a bit too small for my requirements. I did a bit of research myself and found what looked like a likely candidate at the Forum Mall in Koepenick (hence the "Off The Beaten Path" tips on this page). That turned out to be a very good tobacconist, part of the Davidoff network, but only a pipe and cigar outlet.

    Most tobacconists and kiosks did stock Gauloise but only in limited quantities and so plan B was a matter of running around a few of these until I'd filled my quota. I had an ABC public transport pass and so getting around was no problems and so I started with a small newsagent in the Forum Mall in Koepenick with a couple of packs. Then back by S-bahn to Ostkreuz where I found a couple more shops, a swift wander to the Ostbahnhof yielded one more, then to the U-bahn at Warschauer Strasse where another couple of kiosks were located. I was still about half a kilo short and so my next potential outlet I reckoned would be at Alexanderplatz. Here I found the excellent Durek which turned out to be the sort of shop I'd been looking for in the first place and was happily served with a full carton, plus a couple of loose packs and so job done!!

    Then it was beer time ;-HIC!

    Hussel at Alexa mall: Wonderful chocolate

    by MD2nd Updated Aug 27, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Hussel is a store at the ground floor of the mall, that offers every thing sweet and lovely to eat yet mostly chocolate made. Their chocolate taste kinda reminds me on Hershey's as both of'em are less creamy and sweet like the Milka or Nestle or Lindt things are, which I personally prefer. However, Hussel's various selection & deco are just awesome. I purchased a chess game pure chocolate made. Service & staff are very nice, and they beautifully wrapp up things if bought as gifts/souvenirs like chocolate made mini Brandenburger Tor.

The area was the former HQ of police dept, destroyed during WWII. Malls' investors are from Portugal and France, for my understanding.

    Ikea: Items are Swedish yet often Taiwan made too

    by MD2nd Updated Aug 27, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Nice, huge, famous IKEA factory offers thousand of lovely things, very low in price, for furnishing, decorating, clothing, bathing, gardening and on and on and on. New to me was that their stuff is often Taiwan or Turkey made nowdays. Ikea-Berlin Tempelhof is located on Sachsendamm right at A100, exit Alboinstrasse. Easy to get there by public system as well: U6 to station Alt-Tempelhof or subway lines S2 and S25 to station Suedkreuz. Also with bus 204 or trolley M46 it's easy to get there. Question then would be how to get the purchased items packed. Their parking options are enormous, and very comfortable.

    Gruhn bakeries: Wonderful home made like goodies

    by MD2nd Updated Aug 27, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    To my knowledge Gruhn bakeries are located in southern Berlin-districts of Lichterfelde, Dahlem, and Zehlendorf. Not sure whether it's a family owned company but sure any thing baked by Gruhn - bread, cakes, cookies - either sweet or salty - are simply fantastic and home made like. Customers are treated really friendly. Coffee to go, or either have your cup there, tastes great too, not that over-strong as it's often with German bakeries. Another big plus: they do open their shop by already 06:30. That's perfectly my time to go with some yeast done goods, a big cup coffee, and a smile to greet the begin of a new day.
