Where is the german version of the montreal plateau!

Berlin-Leipzig-Amsterdam filter. Visiting all three for a conference on a record shopping (minimal, electro, german techno) and cool neighborhood finding adventure. Any ideas?

I looked through previous threads but this rather specific. At a conference, first time in germany (and flying out of amsterdam). I'd love to find some good vinyl, especially all the old 2000-2005 minimal/microhouse/electro german music that I've never been able to find back in Canada (labels like bpict, force tracks, kompakt, ware, gigolos). Any hints (for berlin mostly, but leipzig and amsterdam wouldnt hurt).

Also I have some mates with me who are interested in good tips on where to shop for good euro fashion (mid designer stuff, g-star, energie, whatever). Neighborhoods where records and clothes unit would be a plus! Many thanks mefi! Multiple people here appreciate it!

Great shopping is to be had in the Prenzlauer Berg and Mitte districts of Berlin. Lots of different clothes stores too. East Berlin has some of the best clothes shopping (and record stores too) that I've ever seen. It's also a cool place to stay and hang out with great bars.

For clothing in Amsterdam, you probably want to go to Kalverstraat and the nine streets. Kalverstraat has the big name chains, while the nine streets have more boutique-like shops. You can also try the department store De Bijenkorf (men's stuff is under Heren) and, for high-end designer stuff, PC Hooftstraat. For records, there's Killa Cutz, which is on Nieuwe Nieuwstraat.
