Kiez Mitte Spandauer Altstadt – Shop `til you drop!
Good shopping location in Spandau’s center (U7: Rathaus Spandau, Altstadt Spandau)
There is no lack of variety; just think of the Spandauer Altstadt – Spandau’s old town center – with its many small shops, the cafés and, not to forget, the movie theater. No matter what time of day or night you come here, something is always going on. Spandau’s historic center is the shopping center of Spandau (circa 300 shops), with Berlin’s largest pedestrian zone.
Close to the old town center, and impossible to miss, lies the shopping center Spandau Arcaden (S+U Spandau). On Klosterstraße, next to Spandauer Arcaden, lies a Spandau highlight: Florida Eiscafé, our favorite ice cream parlor in town. It is hardly surprising and an everyday occurrence that it is packed, even when the weather is a little iffy, but especially when it is nice.
Slurping some ice cream while taking a walk on the riverside of the Havel is a great way to end the day for any Spandauer.
