Time to shop! Schildergasse is Cologne’s main shopping street with loads of brand name retailers. If it seems busier than other city’s high streets you are correct – it was once named the busiest shopping street in Europe. Do explore the side streets as well, some fun shops to be found all around this area. Cafes and restaurants will revive you in the shops get to be too much.

If you are in Cologne and looking to shop, the Schildergasse (Shield Alley--from history in the Middle Ages) is the place to visit. If social validation serves as any measure, over 13,000 people pass through it every hour, making it the most popular shopping street in Europe!!

It features stores and products from most major global fashion lines, and spans half a kilometer through the city from the Dom (cathedral) to the Neumarkt. Even if you aren't looking to shop, it is a place worth visiting to experience the hussle and bustle of Cologne.
