International labels are clustered around the luxury hotels such as the Regent and the Hotel de Rome. However, the best shopping in Berlin is for cutting-edge designers whose boutiques are located in the Mitte area. The best shopping streets are Alte and Neue Schönhauser Strassen, Steinstrasse, Mulakstrasse, Torstrasse and Auguststrasse. Also, browsing the shops in the series of apartment courtyards Hackesche Höfe is a uniquely Berlin experience that should not be missed. Kastanienallee is a fun street with lots of good little shops in Prenzlauer Berg.
