“Tourist Trap”
Reviewed 10 August 2013

The Avenue that contains residences, hotels, restaurants, shopping centres, bars etc is a mix of old world with tree lined streets and the new world with glass faced shopping centres. But we had lunch here and it was all very contrived and there were more tourists than locals

“Worth visiting its side streets”
Reviewed 7 August 2013

Kdamm is a pleasant avenue with many of the major retail chain stores and restaurants. If you continue to walk up the street (towards Charlottenburg Palace) you will see the street transform into a more residential neighborhood. For those looking for an afternoon of shopping, this is the right place to be. There are plenty of shops to choose from/cafés for people-watching. However, I would not recommend eating on the main boulevard. Food is generally not of the highest quality, and is often overpriced. Rather, one should make a point of venturing into the the little side streets, which contain some of the top restaurant and cafés in town (and many are rather affordable). In addition, they provide a good perspective of a typical "Upper East Side" Berlin neighborhood.

“Cosmopolitan atmosphere”
Reviewed 15 June 2013

We went to Kurfurstendamm to get to a restaurant, not shopping, however we found it had a great cosmopolitan atmosphere, tree lined with what appeared to be a good selection of shops and restaurants. Certainly it provides a nice evenings walk and a bit of window shopping at the designer products!

“city shopping”
Reviewed 15 June 2013

If you like shopping then this is the place for you. For me it is like shopping in any major city anywhere in the world. This is why I rate it as average as it is no more or no less than any other.
