Stil in Berlin Shopping Guide 2021
The very first Stil in Berlin Shopping Guide is finally here! You can get (almost) everything in Berlin – if you know where to find it. This handy pdf guide – that you can download immediately after purchase – gives you over 200 shops all over the city and on the internet!
Whether it’s a brick and mortar business or operates exclusively online, this guide is here for your (almost) every need. From fierce ferments and fantastic flowers, good groceries and generous gifts, to brainy books and beautiful bakes. This guide spans all kinds of places – from stores with a history (like Asia Markt Lee or Königliche Gartenakademie) to entirely new ones (like mkw curated or The Gentle Book Shop). Including vintage, second hand, new and artisanal products. All of the entries are independently run, many of them still in family hands, and deeply rooted in local culture. A unique retail scene is what makes a city interesting, so I hope you take this guide as inspiration to get to know this city via shopping – for yourself or your friends and family. And don’t forget to bring your own bag! ENJOY!

After fourteen years of full-scale investigation of all things creative and tasty for Stil in Berlin and other outlets like Vogue and Highsnobiety, I know what is worth your time and money in this city. I moved here in 2003 as a young student and witnessed Berlin’s transition from currywurst-central to much-loved hipster-haven. Today, we enjoy a growing variety of shops and styles as well as long-time favorites. I have visited and selected every place in this guide, none of them have paid to be in here. My judgement is always as authentic and honest as possible: when I visit a new place, I never announce myself and none of the places in here knew they would be included until the guide was finalised.
