Here’s the only original part of the 1929 Karstadt department store at Hermannplatz (but although Hermannplatz belongs to Neukölln, the shop stands in  Berlin – Kreuzberg) that is still available to the public. 

Part of the staircase in the 4th floor still contains the original pre-war water sprinklers used in the case of fire.
