Affectionately known as the Ku’damm, this elegant tree-lined boulevard is a major thoroughfare in Berlin’s west.
The Berlin equivalent of Paris’ Champs-Elysees, the Kurfürstendamm avenue is lined with shops, hotels and historic cafes.
Before World War II, the Ku’damm was the heart of nightlife in Berlin, and before reunification it was West Berlin’s major shopping strip.
Today, it’s a lively stretch for strolling, shopping and dining.
Kurfürstendamm is in the old center of West Berlin. The street runs for 3.5 km (2 mi) from the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, southwest through Charlottenburg and Wilmersdorf.
The closest subways are Zoo and Kurfürstendamm stations.
