Shopping in Dusseldorf

Edit This
i
Even back in the days of Jan Wellem, fashion trends were already being created in Düsseldorf. Very soon, the taste for beautiful clothes was no longer the court’s privilege but was enthusiastically taken up by the bourgeois society. The sense of aesthetics soon proved to be a fertile ground for the development of business with beautiful make-believe. In 1949 already, the first fashion fair opened its doors.

Nowadays, fashion designers and buyers from all over the world flock to the Rhine metropolis several times a year to attend fashion and shoe fairs, of which Collections Premiere and GDS (International Shoe Fair) are the no. 1 in their line worldwide. From here it is only a few steps to the city’s shop windows. The names of designer boutiques in Düsseldorf read like a ‘who’s who’ of their business - Armani, Kenzo, JOOP, Jil Sander, Uta Raasch, Onofri, Féraud.

Dusseldorf is shopping heaven. With many luxury shops the German fashion center is the place to be to find trendy clothes. The Königsallee is one of Germany's best-known shopping areas and is a must for expensive fashion and antiques. Usually affectionately referred to as the ‘Kö’, Düsseldorf’s Königsallee with its elegant shopping arcades is one of the world’s most beautiful boulevards: the catwalk of the latest fashion trends ... one kilometre of seeing and being seen ... sauntering in front of an interested public on the terraces under the chestnut trees. Numerous street cafes are ideal for watching the modish world go by. The neighbouring Schadowstrasse also offers great opportunities.

Shops and stores are normally open from 8.30 am or 9 am until 6.30 pm. On Thursdays shoppers have until 8.30 pm to browse, especially in the larger downtown stores - Thursday is late-shopping night. Shops close at 2 pm on Saturdays but can stay open until 6 pm in winter and 4 pm in summer. There are four more "long Saturdays" just before Christmas.

Altstadt

Edit This

The Old Town (Altstadt), known to most for its cheek-by-jowl line-up of over 260 pubs as a centre of conviviality, is also home to small boutiques and avant-garde shops. Being so close to the Kö, it is ideal for a stroll after or in between that experience. The Altstadt is also where numerous museums and galleries may be found, forming what is styled the 'Arts Axis' in an arc from river-side to river-side.

Karlstadt, with its architecture dating mainly from the eighteenth century, is an integral monument to city expansion in the Baroque era and one of Düsseldorf's most beautiful quarters. With its dense accumulation of antique-shops, galleries and art dealers, especially in Bilker Straße, it is the tip for art-lovers.

Königsallee

Edit This

The 'Kö' is one of the world's famous malls. On the eastern side of its chestnut and plane-tree lined ornamental canal, many exclusive ladies' and men's fashion shops are situated, as are antique shops and booksellers. People visibly enjoy seeing and being seen here as they take time off between two buys and relax at one of the numerous street cafés.

The main attraction amongst the many arcades and passages is the 'Kö-Galerie', which, apart from its wide-ranging display of goods, also beckons with the culinary delights of numerous restaurants.

Schadowstrasse

Edit This

The high-street with the biggest turnover in Germany. Predominantly characterised by large department and clothier's stores, it leads directly into Königsallee. The Schadow-Arkaden, a world of shopping and an experience in itself with its huge array of garments on offer, is a fitting entrée to Königsallee.
