SHOPPING IN DÜSSELDORF
What Berlin is to politics and Frankfurt is to banking, Düsseldorf is to shopping. Hitting the shops in the renowned capital of German fashion is a fine experience. With super chic boutiques Düsseldorf is the country’s arbiter of sophistication and style.
Due to the density and variety of upscale stores, shoppers are not only attracted from surrounding cities and towns but from neighbouring countries such as The Netherlands as well as destinations further afield such as Dubai. The elegant, see-and-be-seen world of the famous Königsallee is a byword for luxury and lavish living.
Düsseldorf offers everything for even the most discerning clientele, whether fashion or fast cars, unique boutiques, emporia, stunning stores and shopping malls offer a fabulous experience.Read More
Great areas to shop include the old town, Altstadt, and narrow streets beyond. Japanese and Asian themes surround Immermannstrasse, while Shadowstrasse offers clothing and sports. Düsseldorf caters to all tastes and budgets, where suburban hypermarkets or larger furniture stores join with megastores dotted around the periphery.
The juxtaposition of small town charm and big city flavour in Düsseldorf extends further. The city is compact and orderly so consumers need only to travel short distances to find popular brand items. Especially when compared with such other shopping destinations such as New York, Paris, London, Hong Kong or Shanghai.
Global brands are on the Königsallee, with its wide pavements and majestic trees beside the canal. The Altstadt and its side streets play host to younger fashion or innovative and individualistic stores. Discover small boutiques in districts such as Derendorf, Flingern, Mitte, Bilk or Oberkassel and bespoke fashion designers tucked away elsewhere in the city.
Socialising in Düsseldorf
Staying in touch and getting together with others living in a similar situation can be important. Expat groups in social media are highly valuable sources for connecting. Socialising in Düsseldorf can include events, international clubs or heading for a popular spot to meet international residents.
