Andreas Murkudis

The high-end boutique of concept store impresario Andreas Murkudis used to occupy a choice courtyard near the Hackesche Höfe. In 2011, Murkudis moved the entire production into an underdeveloped area miles off the well-trodden path. Now located in a former newspaper printing press, Murkudis’ emporium is as cool and cutting-edge as ever, with a well-edited assortment of fashion, accessories, design and beauty products. It’s all extremely high-end and both design- and fashion-conscious men and women will be very happy here (though you best take a taxi from your hotel).

Interior View - Bikini Berlin, Berlin, Germany

Bikini Berlin

Until this concept mall opened in 2014, all of the avant-garde shopping in Berlin was centered in the former East in neighborhoods such as Mitte. Hipsters and cool hunters would rarely venture into the staid former West Berlin, but now thanks to Neni on top of the 25hours Hotel and the pop-up shops in the Bikini Mall, this is a popular hangout and a one-stop-shop for contemporary German fashion. On the ground floor, 20 giant wooden boxes contain temporary retail outlets whose exhibitors may soon graduate to more permanent spaces in the multistory mall. In addition to its shops and cafés, the mall boasts incredible views directly into the baboon exhibit of the Berlin Zoo from both the indoor public spaces as well as the terraced outdoor area that leads to the 25hours Hotel. The more established brands like Andreas Murkudis and Aspesi are on the higher floors.

Exterior at Hackesche Höfe, Berlin, Germany

Hackesche Höfe

Really trendy shoppers grumble that the Hackesche Höfe, a series of eight interconnected courtyards, have become too commercial, expensive and touristy, but for one-stop shopping for local finds they are great fun. First of all, there’s the Art Nouveau grandeur of the courts themselves, especially the beautiful façade of the first courtyard covered in glazed blue tiles. Shops include fashion, accessories, food and art, all locally designed and made (in some cases by artisans who are sitting in their ateliers at the back of the shops). Don’t miss Hoffnung, an incredible leather emporium in Courtyard 4, Schmuckwerk, a lovely jewlery atelier;  Freitag, a whimsical shop dedicated to all-things (fashionable) rain wear in Courtyard 5 and Promobo, a great collective of artisans that carries everything from trendy fashion to gorgeous leather bags. After a shopping spree here, exit the Höfe on the Sophienstrasse side and have a coffee at Barcomi’s.
