Shopping in Berlin

Of the many things to do in Berlin when you book with Gomio, shopping is one of the most sought after. Each district in the city has its own commercial hub, the most central being the busy avenue of Kurfürstendamm, in Charlottenburg, home to many Berlin attractions. On its 4 kilometers shoppers can find a range of clothing shops, department stores and the usual top designer outlets, such as Chanel.

A more affordable option is Friedrichshain, which hosts a wide variety of hip record and design stores, along with young designers’ shops selling clothes that you will not find anywhere else. For the most trendy and flashy fashions, pick up a map of Berlin and head to the multicultural district of Kreuzberg or to the fashionable Hackescher Markt, in Mitte, which is also a cultural hub full of cafes, clubs and independently run cultural centers. If you enjoy browsing through flea markets, don’t miss the big ones at Strasse des 17 Juni and Mauerpark (on Sundays). Gomio has plenty of fantastic hostels in the coolest areas of Berlin if it’s different and original shopping that you are after.
