Rent or let retail space in Berlin

Our team of retail services experts puts itselfin your shoes – after all, locational advantages can be planned.

Detailed market insights and local knowledge are the key to success. The longstanding experience of our consultants in the field of retail and commercial space rentals ensures integrated and professional support. We are intimately familiar with the complex interplay between location, sector, type of operation and any arising synergies. You will receive reliable forecasts for your strategic and operative actions. For best results, we combine analysis, consulting, space procurement and contract management, so that you can negotiate successfully.

Unlike in other big cities, the Berlin retail world is distributed across several top shopping streets that are located throughout the city. Berlin’s six prime locations are situated in the historic city centre in the district of Mitte, in the “city west” in Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf and in Steglitz-Zehlendorf. In addition to shopping streets, more than 60 shopping centres enrich Berlin’s retail trade industry. As a populous city and favourite tourist destination, Berlin has a very high retail turnover at EUR 18 billion. This revenue potential makes the capital enormously attractive to national and international retailers.
