A great shopping city Shop till you drop
Shopping often brings love at first sight. Way-out fashion, skater style or indie look – beauty, as they say, is in the eye of the beholder.
The best retail therapy, of course, comes with affordable prices and nice shop assistants. Aachen still offers a wealth of tiny, unusual boutiques with hidden gems just waiting to be discovered.
Here you’ll find stores packed head to toe with the great inventions of mankind. Domestic mod cons you’ve never dreamt of looking for but which, once bought, become indispensable. Clothes in all sizes, designs and cuts. Interior design accessories that will transform a bed-sit into an island of tranquillity.
Variety of Aachen´s markets
Aachen’s markets, and their sheer variety, draw people in in their thousands. The “European arts and crafts market Aachen” (Europamarkt der Kunsthandwerker) offers traditional handicrafts in modern designs, artistic sketches and the latest fashion designs. Great foodstuffs and freshly cut flowers can be had at the weekly markets, “green” products are available at the “Bio-Markt” on Münsterplatz, and you’ll discover antique, new and second-hand treasures at the Altstadt flea market and the historical annual market too. Add some authentic pep to your home décor or your outfit with genuine antiques and “original replicas” from the 30’s to the 80’s!
Anyone strolling through our city with their eyes open is sure to find their first Aachen love before long.
