Fashion & Shopping in Cologne

Cologne is one of the most popular shopping venues in Germany. The city’s Schildergasse pedestrian zone attracts 15,000 people an hour at peak shopping times, making it the most popular high street in Germany. Just like the neighbouring Hohe Strasse, it accommodates large department stores and branches of familiar brands.
Exclusive designer shops on the other hand have opened on Mittelstraße and Pfeilstraße. At the end of Schildergasse on the north side of Neumarkt are the covered and linked Olivandenhof and Neumarktpassage shopping centres. Other shopping arcades in the city centre and suburbs make shopping here a pleasure, even when it's raining.

Small but perfectly formed, Ehrenstrasse is the ideal place for those looking to pick up some unique souvenirs from Cologne.

Schildergasse is one of the most comprehensive shopping destinations in Cologne as well as one of the most-visited streets in Germany. Located in the city centre, the smart, pedestrianised road displays a covetable array of international brands.

Hohe Strasse
Located in the historic Old Town, Hohe Strasse is one of Cologne’s busiest and most popular shopping locations. A must-visit for retail enthusiasts, it offers a range of womenswear designers, with popular international brands.

Breite Strasse
The elegant houses which once lined Breite Strasse have been converted into beautiful shops, offering a wealth of shopping possibilities.
