Potsdamer Platz, Berlin
I found many shopping centers around the city, all of them tempting to buy buy things. Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately for my wallet?!) I was there during holidays and most days shops were closed.
However what I was looking for and could not find one, was a delicatessen store, where I could buy some genuine german products. You see, I love to taste local food. So If you have any advice on such places in Berlin, please let me know, for use on my next visit to the city!
You can spent the whole day at that mall. You'll find bookshops, clothes, shoes, electronic . . . at the 3 stories. In the basement are a lot of snack bars and at the ground floor there are very often very interesting exhibitions
What to buy: everything
What to pay: till you creditcard crashs
I'll have to admit I'm not big on shopping so I was skeptical when Doreen insisted we go to the Potsdamer Platz. But I was really amazed at the futuristic architecture and even the Sony Center (space-age mall) was a jolt to the senses.
What to buy: There are some shops, probably very expensive and of course, some places to eat, where you could sit and watch the dizzying spectacle rising. I settled for a couple of nice brews in the convenient brewpub, Lindenbrau.
At Potsdamer Platz, in the Daimler-Crysler area, there's a big shopping mall (the circular building on the picture).
