Kurfustendamm, often referred to as Kudamm, is a magnificent boulevard located in West Berlin. It is one of Berlin's most popular and expensive streets. The Boulevard is very spacious with a wide through road and plenty of footpath space for the pedestrian.
It is lined on either side with designer fashion houses, jewelers, speciality shops, hotels, car showrooms, cinemas and restaurants. There are many beautifully presented buildings with elegant facades. Luxurious up-market housing apartments are often located above the lower floor commercial premises. An avenue of Plane trees running down the center of the boulevard softens the streetscape and stretches for more that three kilometers.
Along the boulevard are some interesting historical sites. At the eastern end of the street, the ruined remains of the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church can be found. It gives the visitor a starling reminder of the damage caused by bombs in World War II. Below the ruins, a modern Church has been constructed. Inside are items donated by Germany, Russia and Britain to symbolize the reconciliation between the nations after the war.
Although many of the goods sold on the boulevard are extremely expensive, it does not prevent the visitor from window shopping and taking in the sights.
