Shopping Berlin, Germany
As well as being a temple to fashion, Berlin’s Galeries Lafayette is also an appealing attraction for architecture fans. The Berlin base of this French store was designed by Jean Nouvel and opened in 1996. He created a modern glass dome for the department store, a tribute to its Parisian headquarters. The façade boasts a vertical garden, the brainchild of Patrick Blanc. Across its 9,000m2 of luxury shopping opportunities, you’ll find all the big French and international labels, like La Prairie, Annick Goutal, Burberry, Chanel, Ginette NY, Jean Not and Le Creuset. Francophone literature is also celebrated here, in a dedicated bookshop.
