Galeries Lafayette

We saw an advert for the play area in the children's department of Galeries Lafayette and my son was fueled with a desire to go. 

The children's department is on the third floor and the actual area is on a mezzanine accessed by this sparkly lift.

The play area runs around a central window and offers a slide, little climbing area and some fun things in the ground like the flowers and bugs above and tactile balls.

There is a little comfy cinema area, where children can select cartoons and films to watch with sweets which you can purchase from the cylinders next to the mini cinema.

I would definitely say that this is a play area to keep children entertained whilst you shop not one to go to as a destination but worth a look if you are in the store.

The other plus point of this French department store is its food hall on the basement level - you will certainly come out with a lighter purse but a bag full of yummy French food.

Address: Französische Strasse 23, 10117 Berlin (main access on Friedrichstrasse)
