Whenever Apple does something, hoards of excited people usually follow. Today's opening of the very first Apple Store in the German capital, Berlin, was absolutely no exception. As is tradition, huge crowds of eager Apple fans queued up for as long as 10 hours prior, according to the Berlin Morgenpost.
The first 4500 people through the doors were presented with the traditional special edition t-shirts. The actual store itself is pretty sizeable, checking in at 5000 square meters and housing briefing and event rooms. The 2-year project to bring the Apple Store Kurfürstendamm to life has resulted in a truly stunning store. Housed in one of Berlin's renovated historic buildings, Germany's eleventh Apple Store opened at 5pm local time to the usual cheering, clapping and all round wall of noise.
The good people over at Appdated.de were on hand for the grand opening, so for a host more pictures of the new store be sure to head on over there and take a look. Inside, it's traditional Apple fare. Minimalist, stylish, all wrapped up in a stunning-looking building.
