The Tauentzienstrasse developed from the 1890s as a part of a ring boulevard around the city in western Berlin. It is named after the prussian general Friedrich Bogislav von Tauentzien and is a continuation of the Kurfuerstendamm at its east end. Geographically it runs through the districts Charlottenburg and Schoeneberg in east-west direction. After the erection of Berlins largest department store , the Kaufhaus des Westens (KaDeWe; engl. Store of the West) in 1907, the Tauentzienstrasse developed into a successfull shopping street and was at the core of West-Berlin during the city’s division. This streetview panorama depicts its southern side with the KaDeWe at the left edge. On the central reserve between Marburger and Nuernberger Strasse the well known sculpture Berlin by artist pair Matschinsky-Denninghoff is situated.
