»What amazing halls! what splendour!«
Max Freund, “Der Warenhauskönig”, 1912
Max Freund’s fascination with department stores in 1912 is also a reflection of the good feeling we hope our customers experience when they come to KaDeWe in Berlin, one of the largest department stores in Europe, today. Because from the very start, it was the iconic power of KaDeWe that left visitors spellbound.
KaDeWe Berlin has been constantly reinventing itself since its founding in 1907 and has always been a melting pot of tradition and modernity. As a constantly evolving brand, Kaufhaus des Westens takes its direction from social change and international trends. Be it fashion, interiors or food, KaDeWe is always one step ahead of the latest trends. From the start, the constantly changing window displays and the interior architecture of KaDeWe were a reflection of current trends. Then, just like now, they continuously document the sheer luxury of fashion and design with a very distinct attitude.
KaDeWe has been a destination for local and international customers for more than 100 years. And in the future too, the futuristic architecture is set to preserve the history of KaDeWe while making it as easy as possible for its customers to find their way around. Discover exclusive catwalk collections by international designers, labels from Berlin, luxury beauty lines, the best in Home & Away products and our Die Sechste, spread over 60,000 square metres.
The Sixth Floor is a magnet for curious and discerning connoisseurs. It has shaped and guided developments in culinary culture for many decades. Discover our Champagne Bar and dive into the exquisite selection on our Food and Restaurant Floor with over 35,000 products and wines. The best part? With our catering service, all of our delicacies are also available to go.
Catering and other sophisticated services such as personal shopping, the chauffeur and limousine service, the alteration service or our beauty lounges are a unique selling point of our Berlin department store to this very day. The surprising presentation of products and extraordinary special events, such as readings and fashion parties, make your visit to KaDeWe a shopping experience that will create vivid memories.
We look forward to seeing you!
