The Second Largest Shopping Centre in Europe
40,000-50,000 people visit Berliner KaDeWe daily; it is the second largest shopping centre in Europe after London’s legendary Harrods. The KaDeWe (Kaufhaus des Westens) is very closely connected with the history of Berlin and can reflect the change of the city to an international metropolis. 2017 the symbol of Berlin is celebrating its 110-year anniversary. Welcome, all friends of the Kaufhaus and all shopping fans!
Store at Wittenbergplatz
The department store KaDeWe was opened on March 27, 1907 by Adolf Jandorf. Schöneberg district, where the KaDeWe department store is located, was not a part of Berlin city then. There were already some department stores in the city, but none was so luxurious and modern as the Kaufhaus des Westens on Wittenbergplatz. The weekly “Der Roland von Berlin” wrote that the KaDeWe department store “opened a higher order of the city department stores”. And that’s right even now!
Traditional and Modern
Today KaDeWe department store offers cosmetic, clothing, designer clothes, original gifts, electronics, stationery and souvenirs. Here you can find also beauty salons, restaurants, and cafes. To his 110th Birthday KaDeWe prepares a varied program for all shopping fans. Anniversary time has already started on September 3, 2017. For the customers of the department store are waiting surprises and advantages. And the most interesting and unforgettable event is birthday brunch on October 22 on the legendary 6th floor. It will be a real culinary journey!
