The Berlin Apple Store
Rumors of a new Apple retail store in Berlin had been floating around for years. Then some mysterious construction on the Ku’damm (Kurfürstendamm 26) in 2011 led to more speculation, but still no store. Most observers then predicted a Berlin grand opening in the summer of 2012, but as the year drew to a close, there was still no Apple Store open in Berlin. Of Apple’s 300+ retail stores worldwide, only a piddling 10 were in Germany, a country of 82 million people. Then, on April 22, 2013, Apple finally unveiled a white-on-black sign in front of the new Apple Store on Ku’damm! On Friday, May 3, 2013, after two years of construction, that store finally became the eleventh Apple Store in Germany. A second store in Munich (Olympia Einkaufszentrum) opened in late September 2013, bringing the total to twelve. The new stores in Düsseldorf and Hannover now bring the total to 14 Apple Stores in Germany. See our full list of Apple Store locations in Germany below.
Apple Premium Resellers
Besides the new Apple Store, there are also three Apple Premium Resellers currently in Berlin: Gravis (6 stores) and the mStore in Berlin-Charlottenburg. For information and links about the current German and Swiss Apple retail stores, see the list below.
