About us

1907 – In the same year that Leica launched its first pair of binoculars, Adolf Jandorf opened KaDeWe – das Kaufhaus des Westens – in Berlin. For the majority of globetrotters, a visit to KaDeWe has always been an essential part of any trip to Berlin. And it has become synonymous with the very best in shopping experiences. Today, the 60,000-square-metre store is visited by 180,000 customers a day – and there are no premium consumer brands they will not find. So it was only a matter of time until Martin Meister added KaDeWe to his already successful chain of Leica Stores in Hamburg, Berlin and Munich. The day arrived on 28 March 2014: the Leica Store in KaDeWe added another premium segment to the immense variety of products offered under one roof. Furthermore, as a reflection of the Meister philosophy and as one would expect from a Leica Store, customers can find everything that Leica offers. The entire portfolio of Leica photographic and sport optics products is presented on the 4th floor.
