When visiting a city, many people want to go shopping for a different kind of shopping experience. Depending on what you are looking for Berlin has got many great shops that allows unique shopping experiences.
If you are looking for culture, Dussmann, das KulturKaufhaus is since more than 20 years the number one address in Berlin. It is situated in the very center of the city on Friedrichstrasse and therefore very easy to access. Close to some of the most famous Berlin sights, the store in itself is worth a stop.
Not only for it’s large sortiment of books, cd’s, dvd and more but also for the interior decoration, Dussmann is worth a visit. Indeed, on the ground floor there is a nearly 4000 old Sphynx that belongs to the Egyptian museum and a wall garden built by artist Patrick Blanc, with more than 6000 tropical flowers! So pretty!
There is also a restaurant for those who spend a lot of time in the store. Trust me the sortiment is so big you can easily spend a few hours just by looking around.
For example, at Dussmann you can find the largest choice of english books available in Germany, but also a department with books about Berlin. So interesting to shop for souvenirs or to know what to do in the city especially if you are visiting for a few days. From a book guide about the lakes in Berlin, streetart in Berlin, shopping in Berlin etc
Also, Berlin has a big music influence with it’s many concert venues and major clubs and Dussmann has got a vinyl records department with a large selection of vinyls (+5000vinyls) from upcoming and established artist from all genres. A paradise for vinyl lovers!
