Berlin has many great shops and stores. Stores in Berlin resemble the cities itself: they have a lot of different styles to offer. Looking for T-shirts made by local Berlin designers? Or high-brow Fashion? Second hand clothes or books? Vinyl or tourist gifts? The stores in Berlin have it all. Shopping could best be done in stores in Mitte (Scheunenviertel, Alexanderplatz), Prenzlauer Berg (Kastanienallee, Stargarder Strasse), Kreuzberg (Bergmannstrasse), Friedrichshain (Boxhagener Platz).
Berlin: Vintage Heaven
The flee markets in Berlin are also well-known because of the vintage stuff, art and the relaxed atmosphere. In Berlin you will find the greatest granny furniture and vintage clothes. But also great designer clothes from local designers. To make it a little easier to find your favorite Berlin Shop, we divided this page in different shopping districts.
Who killed Bambi? Don’t worry, in Prenzlauer Berg they are not hunting deer. It’s the name of one of the cool shops this district has to offer. Like Erfinderladen, where you can find crystal blue bath salt that would make Walter White from Breaking Bad jealous. Or Little Pop Machine. They recycle furniture by adding cool skulls, cats, deer and butterflies in a colorful way.
Large bookshops, where you can spend the whole afternoon. Absinthe Heaven, because there are so many green fairy bottles it is impossible to count them all. And a long street full of designer clothes shops.
Mitte has got it all.
The Mulackstrasse, or La Mu as shopaholic Berliners call it, is full of vintage clothes and hip designer brands. And what about a rug inspired by happy children’s drawings, hats that not only keep your ears warm but look good as well. Or the best Berlin chocolate. It happens in Mitte.
Friedrichshain has a lot of funny and true Berlin stores you won’t find in any other city or Berlin district. Shopowners here care more about creativity than about being as hip as possible. Like Yack Fou, where they sell hoodies with mean Berlin bears. Small gallery’s are not into high brow art. They want you inside to enjoy art they painted on old crates or a suitcase and are quite happy if you go out with a colorful poster. Vintage is hot as well in Friedrichshain. One of the nicest fleamarkets of Berlin is here, at Boxhagener Platz.
