Berlin shopping tips for tourists


Hi fashion friends :) As Fashionista ask me at my last post to give her some Berlin shopping tips for her visit, I thought that this is a great post for you all to share the information. So if you ever plan to visit Berlin there are some nice places to shop besides all the sightsighting. [Click here for official sightseeing info]


Let's go shopping

If you want to shop from A like American Apparel to Z like Zara you should definitely go to Kurfürstendamm starting at subway station Wittenbergplatz, there you'll find all High Street Fashion Stores and the famous KaDeWe. In the End of the street prices are getting up and you can buy luxury goods from Gucci, LV etc. 

If you prefer Vintage Shopping try Kreuzberg! There are my 3 favorite Second Hand stores called Bonnie & Kleid (Gneisenaustraße 9), Checkpoint (Mehringdamm 41) and Colours (Bergmannstraße 102 - Happy Hour every Tuesday between 11.00 and 15.00 o'clock 30% discount). You get there by subway, just get out at Mehringdamm and walk 5 minutes.

If you love chic and expensive shopping go to Friedrichstraße and shop for example at the Galerie Lafayette, Hugo Boss or Escada. But there are two H&M's as well ;) Subway station: Französische Straße

Individual clothes and indepent designers can be found in Mitte as well as Prenzlauer Berg. In Mitte walk around Hackescher Markt and discover small designer shops in the streets like Oranienburger Straße. In Mitte you also find the Adidas Original Flagship Store. I love it! It is at Münzstraße 15 right under the trade show office Bread & Butter :) 

For shopping in Prenzlauer Berg I suggest to take the subway till Eberswalder Straße. There you find both small independent labels (Name of the street: Kastanienallee!!!) and Second Hand stores. Just walk around and take a break at all the cool bars and cafes. 

If you stay over the weekend and have time on Sunday, you must definitely visit the flee market at Mauerpark, subway station Eberswalder Straße. It is so much fun and you'll find really nice stuff. Take some time because it is huge!

Hope I could help?! If not, just leave a comment and I try to give you more detailed information if necessary. 
Have fun shopping :) xoxo
