Kaufhaus des Westens, known as KaDeWe by locals, is Berlin’s most iconic department store. The largest of its kind in Europe, spanning over 60,000 sq. meters (645,835 sq. feet) across eight floors, the shop specializes in luxury and high-end goods. Bowie lovers might also remember the store’s mention in his classic song, Where Are We Now, which has perhaps contributed to its popularity, as many as 50,000 people visit KaDeWe each day. High-end brands here include Yves Saint Laurent, Miu Miu, Mont Blanc, Cartier, Burberry, Rolex, Tiffany & Co, Prada, and many more. In addition to clothing and products for the home, the store contains multiple salons, restaurants, and a gorgeous rooftop garden atrium.
