Tauentzienstrasse

© Cameron Blaylock, CC BY-SA 3.0Tauentzienstraße is a major shopping street in the western part of Berlin, Germany. It is approximately 500 metres long and lies between two important squares, Wittenbergplatz and Breitscheidplatz. While the eastern half belongs to the Schöneberg district, the western part on the other side of Nürnberger Straße is in the Charlottenburg district.

The street was laid out during the Wilhelmine period in the manner of a Parisian boulevard, and named for the Prussian general Bogislav Friedrich Emanuel von Tauentzien. During the Cold War, it formed part of the commercial center of West Berlin, along with the nearby Kurfürstendamm. Tauentzienstraße is actually the busier of the two streets due to the concentration of shops along its length.

Midway along the street is a sculpture, entitled Berlin, that expresses the "broken" nature of the city during the Cold War.

Stores along its length include the famous KaDeWe, the largest department store in continental Europe.
