Berlin is a vibrant international cosmopolitan city and best known for its art, music and clubbing scenes. It is an absolute must-see for those interested in underground culture. A seemingly inconspicuous door can take you to an underground venue full of surprises. The Fashion In The City Team invites you to take a trip through Europe’s “It-City”, Berlin!
Our first stop is Friedrichstrasse, the address to many of the world’s biggest brands as well as luxury German brands. Clothes, decor, accessories, and cosmetics — you’ll find it all through the stores in this street.
Located in Kudam, KaDeWe is a gigantic premium department store spanning over 645 thousand square feet with over 380 thousand available products. Their selection of products include women’s, men’s, and kids’ fashion, decor, and a whole floor dedicated to a food court. All of these features make KaDeWe in a tourist attraction of sorts to everyone, but especially to the lovers of fashion.
Krezuberg is a region that was once occupied by young artists searching for cheaper rent, and now hosts an impressive assortment of street art and graffiti painted by artists from all over the world. Through time, this transformed the neighborhood into a thriving artistic and financial hub. Walking through Krezuberg will allow you to find new brands and important local staples, as well as to check out famous international brands. It is surely one of the best places to observe young culture in Berlin.
A lovely break from exploring stores, would be cruising through Markthalle Nue. It was once a small market which flourished into a street filled with restaurants, bars and cafes that open early and close late, all of which prioritize local and seasonal produce.
Berlin truly lives and breathes street art and style, and is one of the main attractions of this city. The East Side Gallery is an outdoor exhibition that counts on nearly a mile long wall covered in over 100 pieces of graffiti.
The number of museums the city hosts is also very impressive. Many surrounding themes of World War II and the Holocaust, which are truly a lesson in history. When it comes to design, Bauhaus-Archiv is the archive for the iconic Bauhaus school of design and architecture. Finally, the Hamburger Banhof Museum and the Sammlung Scharf-Gerstenberg Museum host, respectively, modern art and surrealist art.
Truly one of the brightest urban centers in Europe, Berlin is the perfect city to visit for those whose interests surround modern fashion, art, and architecture!
