Alsterhaus in Hamburg, KaDeWe in Berlin and Oberpollinger in Munich are delighting visitors with a modern and futuristic Christmas concept named ‘A Cosmic Christmas’. In each of the stores, hundreds of Christmas trees shimmer in pastel colours and iridescent stars cast their spell on guests like foreign planets. In amongst all this, we encounter the star guests, the Cosmic Family, everywhere. The five members of the ‘Cosmic Family’ look like characters from a comic strip, but otherwise they are like almost any other family: the grandmother discovers new ideas in the ‘New Kitchen’ section and ‘The Sixth Floor’, the food department of the KaDeWe, while the mother's eyes light up, and not just at the beauty highlights.
Meanwhile, the father takes every opportunity to point out social distancing rules and hygiene etiquette: ‘On earth and in space: Take care and stay safe!’ Within the spacious stores, all the prerequisites have been met so that guests can experience the Christmas atmosphere safely and in a carefree way. After all, the greatest gifts you can have at Christmas are good health and Amazing gifts that you cannot buy.
