Shopping in Frankfurt Zeil: Welcome to Frankfurt’s most popular shopping street, which is at the same time the shopping promenade with the highest turnover in all of Germany. More than 500.000 clients are being served here every day. At Zeil, you will find Europe’s largest ”Douglas” beauty store. On top of this, all the big department stores there are in Frankfurt can be found in this street, from “Galeria Kaufhof” and “Karstadt” to “Peek&Cloppenburg”. As any important German retail chain has at least one outlet at Zeil, you have to make a decision: do you want to start with shoe-shopping at “Deichmann” or do you prefer looking for clothes at “Zara”, “New Yorker” or “H&M” first? The Zeil Gallery is a shopping mall directly located at Zeil. Not only can you enjoy the futuristic interior, you can also visit the numerous trend shops, which mainly attract young people. You should definitely pay the roof terrace of Zeil Gallery a visit – the entrance is free of charge and you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the skyline. Fressgass’: Close by, you will find Frankfurt’s culinary mile, the so-called “Fressgass’” (“munching street”). Here, you can recover from an exhausting shopping outing in one of the many cafes, lunchrooms and snack bars. Nowhere in Germany will you find a greater diversity of restaurants within only a single street. Women can “park” their husbands here while they continue to shop till they drop! Goethestraße: This is Frankfurt’s most luxurious street where you will find exclusive shops with high-end products. Goethe Street is just a few steps away from Fressgass and yet, only few people with big money end up in the shops of this tiny but charming alley where the most exclusive designer brands –such as Cartier or Tiffany’s- are waiting for their affluent clients. Further important shopping destinations Kaiserstraße: This street is one of the few places in Germany where you can still find authentic 18th century buildings that have not been destroyed in WWII. While the part of the street that leads to the main station is now famous for its erotic shops and for its nightlife, the other end of Kaiser Street, i.e. the one leading to the city center, still reflects the wealth and glory of epochs long forgotten. It is in this part of Kaiser street that you can still find expensive jewelry shops and furriers. Hanauer Landstraße: While marvelling at the modern industrial architecture of this street, you can buy exclusive and rare designer furniture or antiques and other sensual home items from the Far East. For those of you who love cars, Hanauer Landstraße with its many car dealers is definitely a must. You can also stop at one of the international supermarkets and wholesalers and try some canned Chinese specialities.turkeyarena.com Berger Straße: Take a breath of authentic Frankfurt life at Berger Street and enjoy the small-town atmosphere which coexists peacefully with the buoyant bar and retaurant scene in this street. As many people live in the four-storey townhouses of Berger Street, the shops here are rather food shops and small corner shops run by immigrants than big department stores. You will, however, also find some book shops (including many second-hand bookshops). After shopping, it is up to you: you either choose to eat in one of the numerous restaurants or you prefer to end up in an authentic apple wine tavern. Leiziger Straße: Located in the heart of the student area of Bockheim, Leipziger Street offers a colourful and multicultural mixture of small shops. Speciality shops such as small shops offering jewelry and accessories created by young upcoming designers and shops for esoteric books can be found alongside Turkish Fruits’n’Vegetable markets. Some shops are situated in the backyards of the houses, for instance a traditional coffee-roasting establishment and a wine shop. Whoever is looking for a unique present might find it in this street.
