A colorful mixture of specialty stores and small shops can be found on Fried­richs­hain’s Frankfurter Allee and Karl-Marx-Allee. In Kreuzberg, the main shopp­ing areas are on Wrangel-, Bergmann-, Skalitzer and Oranienstraße, all inhabitated by some rather creative people. On Graefestraße you can find Germany’s only licorice store, for example. Zossener Straße is another place full of surprises. “Grober Unfug” (monkey business) offers comic books from all over the world and collector “Knopf-Paul” (Button-Paul) has 1.5 million buttons in his assortment.
Towards Neukölln there are fewer curiosities. On the other hand, you can shop indoors here: The giant “Gropius Passagen” is Berlin’s largest mall. The “Neukölln Arcaden,” a mall with 60 stores, is smaller, but just as modern. If you come here, don’t forget to take a walk down Karl-Marx-Straße, as well. This is one of the most popular shopping streets in southern Berlin.
