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.
Good way to get acquainted with the city and to see certain sights quickly if there is limited time.
It was very nice, don't hesitate to buy Berlin City Hop on Hop off.
This was an excellent tour, especially having walked 5/6 miles prior to getting on the bus! The audio commentary was very interesting and informative. Will recommend to others. Thanks. CJG
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.
