Apple Rosenthaler StraÃe opens on Thursday December 2 in Berlin
Apple showcases Berlin’s creativity and diversity with special Today at Apple programming from local illustrators
BERLIN, GERMANY Apple today previewed Apple Rosenthaler StraÃe, the first Apple Store in Berlin’s Mitte district. Located in the east of the capital, Apple Rosenthaler StraÃe makes it easy for customers to discover new products just in time for the holidays and to develop their skills to take their creativity to the next level.
âWe are delighted to open our second store in Berlin, right in the heart of Mitte,â said Deirdre O’Brien, senior vice president of Apple Retail + People. âBlending Apple’s exceptional technology and tools with the creative passion we share with this community gives us the opportunity to create something truly special for our customers in Germany. “
As part of the opening, Today at Apple will host artists from Berlin from the illustrator collective Parallel Universe. Each artist will draw their unique vision of Mitte’s creative mind live on iPad Pro. Apple will host a range of artists and creators displaying their distinctive perspectives on the local community, including visual artists Zebu Ruohan Wang. Customers can find Today at Apple programming at: apple.co/Berlin.
Scheduled for next year, Berlin will also host the planned expansion of Today at Apple Creative Studios. Creative Studios is Apple’s global initiative that provides career development mentorship, industry professional skills training, tools and creative resources to underrepresented communities. Apple will work closely with local nonprofits and community organizations to connect young people with mentors and artists established across Berlin to nurture and develop their creative talents.
The new shopping destination is located near the vibrant Hackesche HÃ¶fe district, surrounded by design companies, art studios and some of Berlin’s historic sites. Upon entering the store, visitors will discover the uniquely designed seven-meter-high floor-to-ceiling windows and towering trees. Customers can explore Apple’s latest line of products and services on tables and avenues, which now includes Apple Fitness + after its launch in Germany.
Upon entering the interior, customers will immediately discover the Forum and Video Wall, which houses free Today at Apple sessions. Led by Apple Creative Pros, these daily sessions provide creative inspiration, teach hands-on skills, and help customers go further with their products. Across the store, customers can get purchase assistance from Apple Specialists and learn more about monthly finance options or Apple’s trade-in program. The new dedicated Apple Pickup zone, the first of its kind in Europe, makes it even easier for customers to collect their products ordered online. Like all Apple facilities around the world, Apple Rosenthaler StraÃe will run entirely on 100% renewable energy.
