From high end boutiques to bargain antiques, Frankfurt shopping is among the best in Europe. Visitors on shopping breaks in Frankfurt can explore a diversity of stores to create the ultimate retail experience.
Shopping on The Zeil
Frankfurt’s primary shopping area is The Zeil. The Zeil welcomes half a million shoppers each day, and rivals Oxford Street and the Champs Elysees as one of Europe’s busiest shopping streets. Here, historic department stores mingle alongside retail chains, selling everything from the latest fashions to luxury cosmetics.
This shopping area is also home to the Zeilgalerie, an indoor mall where shoppers can buy cutting-edge designs and modern accessories. The roof terrace at the Zeilgalerie is also worth a visit – with inspiring views over the Frankfurt skyline, it offers the chance to relax between purchases and appreciate the city’s vibrant atmosphere.
The newest addition to The Zeil area is MyZeil, an upscale retail destination that encompasses fashion, electronics, food and much more. This futuristic mall encapsulates the essence of what The Zeil is all about – an effortlessly stylish shopping experience in a buzzing city.
Discovering Frankfurt’s shopping landscape
Away from The Zeil, Goethestrasse attracts visitors and residents to its designer boutiques and luxury brands, including major jewellers like Tiffany. At Fressgass – the “eating street” – a mile of food stalls jostle for shoppers’ attention, and the Kleinmarkthalle is the place to go for fresh groceries, herbs and spices. Bergerstrasse is another favourite with residents, thanks to its charming blend of boutiques, cafes and book shops.
In addition to its major shopping areas, Frankfurt hosts a variety of regular markets and the main Frankfurt Christmas market is an annual city highlight.
