@ dana . . . well, the major shopping area is the altstadt (old city) which has all the international brands. that's the only place i've shopped there, but the h&m there had some capsule lines that were interesting and my host father loooooved the big shopping mall with all the high-end brands. dusseldorf is like the "media" center of germany, kinda like hollywood, so there's bound to be good shopping! let me know what you find!

sorry, don't know if you're german so if you are, you already know this i'm sure . . .
but heinrich-heine-allee in the altstadt is called "the longest pub in the world" because all the breweries/restaurants put their tables outside and it's like a big picnic. so fun! i spent most of my few days in dusseldorf in the breweries learning about the altbier from my host father

Thank you Caroline for your reply, I've been to that street with all the international brands, enjoyed it very much ( for those people traveling there soon) there is an Hermes, Chanel, MCM, Gucci, Prada, Hogan, Walter Steiger Louis Vuitton, Burrbery is opening soon, there is a boutique that carries many different brands like Dior, MiuMiu, Marni, Just Cavalli, Philip Plein and other brands right on the street right on the street next to the other brands. Do you remember the name of the big shopping mall?

Well so far I didn't buy except many different kinds of pantyhose mesh and opaque ones from american apparel

oh, and karlstadt has lots of antique shops and art galleries, if you are interested in any of that...

As for malls, Koegallerie has a Jil Sander but otherwise I didn't see any designer stores there and I didn't look in the larger stores to see if they carry higher end brands.
the Schadow Arkaden is on Koenigsallee and it's shaped like a star . . . that's the mall I was talking about above. They have an H&M, Zara, a dm, a DeutscheBank, and some expensive boutiques. There's also a MAC counter.
there's also a "theme" mall called Seven which I've never been to. I do remember hearing that it's tax-free.
also there's a flohmarkt (street market) every saturday at 8 at Aachener Platz.
but definitely ask the concierge at your hotel, or maybe do an internet search? When I was in DUE I was a very poor student so I didn't go to nice shops at all, this is just what I've seen. and please forgive me if I've misspelled anything

I'm going to Frankfurt am Main later this week and I would love to hear all the shopping tips. I've been in the city several times before in the city centre and seen all the basic stores Kaufhof, P&C... But I would love to know more about some brand outlets and smaller stores. It would be also nice to know if it's wise to travel to the smaller cities nearby such as Mainz or Wiesbaden for shopping or is the Frankfurt area the best place for a weekend shopping? Thanks in advance.

Berlin shopping
Hi everyone, I went to Berlin once years ago and I only had a couple days there so I only had 3 hours or so to shop but I found the best area to shop which was more like SoHo rather than 5th Ave (point of comparison for new Yorkers). It had a filippa K store and lots of tiny streets (cobblestone?) full of similar shops. I’m really into the Scandinavian brands. Does anyone know what filippa k store is located in this very limited description of mine? I would like to shop there again when I’m there for 4 days. Here are the list of filippa k stores in Berlin:

1. Amorph
Schlüterstr. 3710629, BerlinGermany
Woman
2. Aquagefühlsanstalt
Wühlischstrasse 2810245, BerlinGermany
Man, Woman
3. Filippa K
Alte Schönhauser Strasse 1110119, BerlinGermany+49 030 2404-8778berlin@filippa-k.com
Man, Woman
4. Filippa K
Schlüterstrasse 5010629, BerlinGermanystore.schlueterstrasse@filippa-k.com
Man, Woman
5. Greta & Luis
Rosenthaler Str. 1510119, BerlinGermany
Man, Woman
6. Shoeting
Bergmannstr. 810961, BerlinGermany
Woman

Ok rereshing tread - im going to Frankfurt am Main in few days - would love to find nice shop with "clean style" in style like COS, &Other Stories, Jill Sander, The Row and so on. Rather minimalistic luxury.

Any tips - also about nice cafes & bar/clubs?
