Frankfurt's promenades

Look & stroll & shop around. Be it luxury, mainstream or handmade - several shopping streets represent the entire shopping diversity of the Main metropolis.

The first address for a successful shopping tour is the „Zeil". According to a census, up to 14,000 people stroll along here within an hour. This makes it the most visited shopping mile in Germany. The main action takes place on 650 metres between Hauptwache and Konstablerwache: The MyZeil shopping centre, for example, impresses not only with around 100 shops, including many trendy labels, but also with its architecture. For those who prefer more upmarket goods, Goethestraße has all the important luxury labels. Translated with (free version)

Looking for vintage parts or handmade products? Then a visit to the Brückenviertel in Sachsenhausen is worthwhile. Brückenstrasse and Wallstrasse are home to numerous owner-operated stores - from the city's oldest crime bookstore to a well-stocked record store. A similar picture emerges on the other shopping streets such as Berger Strasse, Leipziger Strasse and Schweizer Strasse.
