Hanne, i'm quite sure you mean KaDeWe that's a huge store where you can find everything you desire- have a look at the cosmetics, you'll find a huge variety there!
one of the best-located boroughs is 'Mitte' with its large shopping street Ku'damm (you find different brands there- from Chanel, Burberry to Zara, H&M and others).
Enjoy Berlin

Thank you nikos and *DiamondQueen* - not sure KaDeWe is the market I've been told about.. I think it's a turkish textil market that's supposedly extremely cheap ?

you're very welcome, Hanne
look at www.kadewe.de
by the way the address of KaDeWe is Taurentzienstr. 21-24 (very central) ...as it's Europe's biggest department store KaDeWe is worth a visit in any case!(they sell about 2000 brands there on many floors)

Great place to eat :
PIZZERIA I DUE FORNI Schönhauser Allee 12 10119 Berlin (u-bahn stop : senefelderplatz) - Cheap, great, fun, noisy and gooood food (pizza the way it should be).

KaDeWe - If you're expecting a german version of Harrods, Selfridge etc..this is not it.. The clothing selection was sub par.. The cosmetics section was okay.

Sewing - if you're into sewing there is a dirt cheap textile and Turkish delicacy market every tuesday and friday from 12:00 - 18:30 at Maybachufer (u-bahn stop: Schönleinstrasse).

I'll be visiting Berlin in the end of this May.
I'd love to do some shopping. Especially jeans or shoes.
Comparing to UK or Sweden, does anyone know if the jeans are often cheaper or expensiver?
Are there any chic brands that I should look for, in jeans? Or is it better to buy jeans in Sweden.

Are there any good, but a bit cheap stores that sell really nice clothes? Something like H&M or topshop.

For the swedes, there's this Berlin shopping special in the Cosmopolitan june issue. It made me hopeful again, about finding something beautiful when I'm visiting Berlin.

They recommended the Blush store. They wrote that it's a spectacular underwearstore. Does anyone have any knowledge of it? Quality, prices.. etc.

I'm going to Berlin next week, I love it! I don't know the city that well, but I have a few tips: on Rosenthaler Strasse, and around that area, there are many funky smaller shops. They mostly sell sporty, designer streetwear though, which isn't really my style, but if you look there are great clothes just waiting to be found! There's also a really good restaurant (though a bit expensive) called Pan Asian in the Hackeschen Maerkten which serves great sushi rolls Finally, though the Ku'damm has all the shops you could ever want, there's not much atmosphere and it's usually pretty crowded. I prefer the East Berlin neighborhoods, like Prenzlauer Berg, which are trendier but less crowded.

I had an amazing time at the Departmentstore Quartier 206 mentioned here. They have top notch brands and an excellent sales staff who knows when to give you space.

I've written more about it for Stylebites. Check it out here.

I'm in Berlin right now I'm not sure if anyone's mentioned the Kastanienallee and the Oderbergerstrasse. Both are in Prenzlauer Berg (East all the way!) and have a few fun vintage, kitsch and retro shops like Skunkfunk, which I think represent Berlin style very well. More fun to hang out than do serious shopping at, though.
