Kurfürstendamm dates back to the 16th century when Electoral Prince Joachim II constructed a path connecting his palace on Unter den Linden with his hunting lodge in Grunewald forest. In the late 19th century Bismarck transformed the simple street into a prestigious boulevard lined by stunning town houses. Destroyed during the World War II and rebuilt in the ensuing decades, Kurfürstendamm is no longer the beauty it once was. Yet 'Ku'damm', as Berliners affectionately call it, is still a symbol of wealth and prosperity.
