Kranzler Eck Berlin celebrates 20th anniversary with summer cinema

13. August 2020

Berlin’s most famous corner (Ecke) turns 20 and is inviting guests to the open-air summer cinema event to celebrate this special landmark. Kranzler Eck Berlin will screen a popular classic film or blockbuster every evening from 3 to 12 September 2020. To start off, Daniel Craig stars as James Bond in “Spectre”, where he is pitted against the criminal organisation of the same name headed by his adversary Ernst Stavro Blofeld (Christoph Waltz). This will be followed by more German and international productions from the genres of action, comedy and drama, as well as animations and children’s films. Visitors who arrive early can receive an entry wristband and thus one of the 100 seats. Until the film begins, the time can be bridged with a little shopping in Kranzler Eck Berlin, or by indulging at one of the cafés and restaurants. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, strict hygiene and safety measures must be adhered to (distancing, mouth-and-nose masks, disinfection, registration, etc.). Entry is free of charge.

More information on the summer cinema event and the entire programme can be found here.

Shops open on Sunday for Fête de la Musique on 21 June 2020

18. June 2020

On the longest day of the year, the music festival in Berlin will celebrate its 25th anniversary – just a little differently this year however, namely via digital channels and formats. Lots of creative staging concepts have already been implemented in the digital environment. But online will not be the only place to hear music in Berlin: the organisers are calling on Berliners to turn their own balconies into stages. And from 5 to 6 pm, there will be a chance for everyone to sing along on the live stream.

To celebrate the Fête de la Musique, the shops will also be open on Sunday – including many on Kurfürstendamm and at Kranzler Eck Berlin. It is the ideal opportunity to do some shopping and add a breath of fresh air to your wardrobe. After all, the best months of the year are still ahead. High time to brighten up your wardrobe with some smart new clothes. The shops are all offering their latest summer collections.

We hope you have a great Sunday shopping experience in City West.

Buddy Bear

Buddy Bear Quadriga shines once again

20. April 2020

It is an imposing five metres wide, just as long and almost as high. As beautiful and impressive as the Brandenburg Gate, the ensemble is truly unique and unparalleled in the world. You can touch it and take pictures. It is lots of fun and bubbles with Berlin’s humour and charm. Our Buddy Bear Quadriga at the Kranzler Eck! The bears quickly became a popular photo opportunity and destination for shoppers, sightseers and visitors to Berlin.

Ten years after their unveiling, it was time for a comprehensive refurbishment. The Quadriga has been having a facelift since March. Both the base and the bear sculptures were in need of repair, including sanding, applying putty, priming and painting. The Buddy in the chariot will even be given a new sceptre. The Buddy Bear Quadriga is expected back at its original location in May, when it will once again shine brightly and bring a smile to visitors from all over the world.

Beets & Roots

The selection includes wraps, salads, soups and vegetarian bowls. Meals inspired by global cuisine, international flair and a pinch of urban atmosphere. Enjoy your meal!

Timberland team wins the Kranzler Eck Runners’ Cup held as part of the Kellnerlauf (Service Staff Race) in Berlin.

3. July 2019

Did the team win thanks to the right shoes or the well-trained runners? Either way, the staff of the outdoor-lifestyle specialists from Timberland won the second edition of the Kranzler Eck Runners Cup with a considerable lead ahead of the second-place finishers. This relay race sponsored by local tenants is developing into another highlight held during the traditional Kellnerlauf at the Kranzler Eck. Even TV chef Ralf Zacherl, who as a member of the jury had an eye out for his colleagues, was impressed by the dynamic sprints covering 400 meters.


Last year’s defending team, Lululemon, had to acknowledge their defeat and pass on the Challenge Cup. The Cup was handed over to the jubilant winner on 2 July 2019 by Ulrike Dawartz from the Center Management. We congratulate the winners and wish everyone the best of luck for the upcoming anniversary run in 2020, which marks the 20th birthday of the Kranzler Eck.



Love at first sight: Musical stars meet the Buddy Bears

28. June 2019

When the performers from the musical “THE BAND” discovered the five members of our Buddy Bear “boy group”, they were immediately hooked. They became friends straight away and it was obvious they were all having fun posing with the cute bears.

The musical, which is currently showing in the neighbouring Theater des Westens, deals with the topic of friendship and big emotions. The show tells the story of five young girls who lose touch with each other – but come together years later, united by their shared passion for music.

It is a trip back to the 90s, the era of the boy band. Fans can once again enjoy the feeling of being a teenager for an evening and can join in singing the popular Take That songs.





Great performance at the 9th Berliner Kellnerlauf

15. May 2019

At the 9th Berliner Kellnerlauf (Service Staff Race) at the Kranzler Eck, the Berlin state champions of the hotel and restaurant trade were determined in seven categories on the Sunday shopping day. Participation in the race was once again very high despite the less than ideal weather conditions. A total of 66 waitresses and waiters, barkeepers, cooks, bellhops and beer delivery drivers competed in the 400-meter circuit down the Ku’damm and were watched live and celebrated by about 600 spectators.


Some of the previous year’s winners were able to defend their title and can once again call themselves the Berlin champions of the hotel and restaurant trade. One of them is serial winner Efstathios Stathiadis who won the bellhop race for the fourth time in a row and was the luck recipient of € 300 in prize money.


Juror and TV chef Ralf Zacherl was the special guest once again, cheering on his colleagues and rating their desserts.


We look forward to the anniversary edition in 2020, celebrating 20 years of the Kranzler Eck and 10 years of the Kellnerlauf.
