Bree: Bags. bags, bags

If you are in search of bags, head towards Bree shop on Kurfürstendamm and chances are quite good that you would find something.

The selection is mostly feminine, as usual with bags and other accessories. Bree has also a small travel series that is unisex.

You can find both cheery, juvenile bags as well as very business oriented briefcases on the shelves. The materials vary from the normal leather to ballistic nylon, depending on the intended usage of the bag.

Bally: Swiss fashion

Swiss and fashion usually do not belong to the same sentence, but Bally is an exception to the rule. The sleek and minimal designs are typical for this brand that does not make too much noise of itself. It is enough, when the wearer knows what he or she is wearing.

Bally's flagship store is located, among other fashion boutiques, on the busy shopping street Kurfürstendamm. The store follows Bally's new concept for the flagship stores, a lot of streamlined space with light materials with some brown to add warmth.

The store stocks both gentlemen's and ladies' fashions, including shoes, bags and other accessories. The price may be steep, but the quality and the design are excellent, too.

Porsche Design: Sleek stuff

Porsche Design flagship store on Kurfürstendamm has a wide range of ultra-designed items on its shelves. The variety can boggle your mind: shoes, luggage, pens, pipes, pocket knives, glasses, and host of other items.

Everything has been designed with the same principles, and it shows. You can mix and match any and every item with something else in the shop, and they look like they have been designed as a pair.

Porsche's design is based on form follows function principle, but it has its own twist with dark materials accompanied with metal. It may not be for everybody, but I sure liked it. Too bad that most of the items are hugely expensive.

Ku-Damm

Of course you can buy everything here. For the die-hard shoppers among us, KaDeWe has it all - more or less. And if that's not enough, the entire area is lined with consumer candy!

What to buy What's not to buy? If you can't buy it here, it'll be hard to find in all of Germany!

Apollo Optik: If your eyeglasses break...where to get new ones

Before I arrived in Berlin, my eyeglasses (4 years old, anyway) snapped in two in Krakow. Luckily, I had some contact lense with me, but as I have a stigmatism my contacts don't fit my eye as well as they could.

So, I had to get new eyeglasses in Berlin. What to do? Well, head to the place where you can get just about anything -- The Kurfuerstendamm.

Germans are know for their functional style, so finding a cool pair of specks should be a snap- no matter what your tastes.

I found Apollo Optik and after I explained that I only had five days in Berlin, they put a rush on the order and got the eyeglasses made in just four days.

The optician, Ulrich, has worked there for 20 years and is a very genial, helpful guy - who speaks English. All around a great, stress-free experience.

What to buy They were even running a special on anti-glare and other cool features for the prescription, so I actually got a bargain in the process. They had designer frames costing around 200 euro, but in the end I found the perfect pair for me at around 69 euro. So I was pleased.

What to pay 60 - 300 euro for the frames + 80 euro for a simple prescription.

Ku-Damm (Kurfürstendamm): Shopping with decent prizes

In Ku-Damm you can find very broad selection of different shops and department stores. One of my favourites is C&A (cheap & awful?:) clothes store, where you can find normal clothes, (t-shirts, jackets, trousers, ...) with very low prices. Not very trendy clothes, but beats H&M in every category. There are also very good music shops in the area. Not to mention shops for adult entertainment..:)

What to buy German rock music: Rammstein, Guano Apes, Die Ärtze, ... You name it, they have it.

What to pay About average

Lösche: If you are say Bill Gates...

This story didn't look very luxary neither outside nor inside. Despite this there was stuff worth millions of euros there: various fur, sheepskin and leather coats. The prizes were fixed but... the saleswoman decided to lower one for us (25%).

We didn't meet any animal rights activists there. Are there any in Berlin? As I know they often protest aggressively in front of these stores against what they believe to be cruelty against animals. Right?

What to buy I am neither Rockefeller nor Bill Gates (+ I am travel addicted :-) so I did buy nothing there. Among hundreds of clothes Urszula found (she has talent to it) beautiful, long, almost white (dirty white) sheepskin coat which looked like 100 yo.

What to pay The sheepskin coat Urszula liked so much costed... 2,000 € (first price) and 1,500 € (last price). Sadness :-(. Hmm... should be much less in Poland when made by a furrier.

Getränke Hoffmann was a chain drink and liquor store. There was limited but quite good choice for budget travelers looking for mineral water, juices, beer, wine, champagne or vodka.

What to buy Mango-Nektar (quite good if you like mango) or choose among numerous German beers and wines.

What to pay Reasonable or low prices.
