Top ways to experience Kurfürstendamm
The area
Neighborhood: Charlottenburg
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighbourhood. Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city: upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theatres close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
How to get there

It’s OK, not the best shopping street, doesn’t have the charm of shopping streets in other cities , However, the highlight for the kids was definitely the Lego store, this was really nice, and had a lot of cool exhibits and special types of Legos. The level of friendliness and good service in Berlin is quite below average. In some shops you can not enter with a away coffee cup.. I would say the best part of the street is where you can see the old church!

My favorite area in Berlin. After a few times visiting Berlin I know this is the best place to stay in a hotel. You have everything here - restaurants, cafes, shops, close transport, and safe to wonder at night.

Nice and long wide street, very busy traffic, but crammed with shops, high and low end, as well as some very good restaurants and bars. Do try the Schwarzes Café for a beer and/or some good pasta (bruschettas are great too). Nice walking, don't do HOHO for this, waste of opportunity.

Loaded with shops, hotels and restaurants, the long, broad Ku'damm (Kurfurstendam) is one of the most famous streets in Berlin. It is always bustling with tourists and locals and most of the famous designer shops can be found along its route as well as many other more affordable shopping venues. Interesting even if you are not into shopping. The remains of Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church is found on Ku'damm - that is definitely worth a visit.

I used to live in Berlin and shopping on the Kudamm was one of my favorite things to do. There are so many shops, restaurants and 2 department stores. The Kardstadt and the ultra premier department store - The KaDeWe. You'll also find the famous Kaiser Wilhelm Church memorial which is a ruin that represents peace and reconciliation. The tower standing is amazing and has a little museum inside-free entry. During Christmas there is a market with outdoor stalls which is always fun to visit & much safer now with road barriers/cement blockers & extra security. The only hectic thing is deciding were to park if you drive. Most street parking is taken as in Berlin - parking is sooo limited, it's like a fight to get a spot. Go early morning to get something on the street-bring change for the meter or park in an hourly garage at one of the department stores or public garage. If you can take the busses or trains do so, it's much easier. Wear comfortable shoes...lots of walking up and down the Kudamm.

Also known as Ku’damm for short, this shopping and enternainment street in Western Berlin is surely worth seeing. Top brand stores and restaurants line up both sides and while it is not in the core centre of the city, it is easily accessible by public transportation, a walking distance from the old Berlin Zoo. As distances to cover are unexpectedly large, traffic is hectic due to numerous constrcution sites and parking does not come cheap or easy - my strong recommendation is to purchase the Berlin Card - valid for one, two, or more days, depending how long you are planning to be in town. There is no need to buy it online - as any tourist-info point sells them. You get entrance ticket and some restaurant discounts, free travel on all S and U Banhns, as well as trams, busses and a few other options of transit.

Kurfürstendamm is a must see for any tourist visiting Berlin.

Located in West Berlin it is easily reached by public transport. The nearest U-Bahn is Wittenbergplatz which is adjacent to the infamous Kaufhaus des Westens department store.

Some of the cities flagship stores are located along this shopping avenue which is a haven for shoppers!

At Christmas Ku’damm becomes a winter wonderland as the stores and street is transformed with lights. Ku’damm is walking distance to Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, this Church is an anti-war memorial to peace and one of the most symbolic sights in Berlin as the west tower remains a ruin following the WWII bombing. Surrounding the Church is one of Berlin’s many Christmas markets which are not to be missed!

Berlin Zoo lies within close proximity to Ku’Damm meaning that you can spend plenty of time sightseeing in the area.

Kurfurstendamm is one of the most famous streets in not only Berlin but Germany.
The street is long ,it's the equivalent of the Champs Elysees in Paris with an amazing amount of shopping outlets from high end shops such as Gucci ,Luise Vuitton and Hermes to more conventional boutique shops plus you have huge shopping centres such as Europa Centre and the slighly more upmarket and famous KaDeWe department store but there is so much more to this street than shops.
On any holiday I detest shopping and normally restrict it to gifts but I enjoy going the Europa Centre as it houses a great Irish pub called simply Irish pub Europe Centre and a great Bavarian beerhall called Baverium and both are great places to visit and I have had some great nights out in these establishment's.
You can also find the Hard Rock Cafe Berlin on this street and many more pubs, bars and restaurants.
You can also find some fantastic Berlin sites here including the very sombre Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church which is a war memorial to the madness and destruction of WW 2.
If you jump off at Ubahn stops Kurfurstendamm,Uhlandstraße or Adenauerplatz you will be on this famous street.

A trip to see the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial church is a must. Other than that, the Ku'Damm is a shopping street pretty much like any other big city. The only exception is of course the KaDeWe food hall. The Zoo and Aquarium are also nearby

The Avenue in the city centre is lovely with so many elegant stores and restaurants.
It is well decorated and lit during the seasonal occasions as Christmas and new year.
The avenue is very close to the Zoologischer Garten and Kaiser Wilhelm Gedächtnis Kirche. The avenue is near Station Zoo and is well connected with the public transport.
It is one of the excellent sightseeings in Berlin.
