Shopping at Zeil

The Zeil is the main shopping street in Frankfurt, lined with international department stores, specialty shops, elegant boutiques and the top modern shopping centre called MyZeil. A large part of this bustling street is a pedestrian area, and here you will find everything from clothing to footwear, jewellery and electronics.


There are fun shops in most areas of Frankfurt, but the most popular shopping area is in the centre of the city. The main pedestrian street Zeil offers two classic department stores, Kaufhof and Karstadt. This is also where you will find the MyZeil and the UpperZeil malls. If you are looking for Gucci, Escada, Versace and other luxury brands, your best bet is to head for Goethestraße, a more exclusive version of Zeil. In the Sachsenhausen area, south of the river Main, is a more charming shopping area that caters to younger people. Those who are looking for funkier shopping should go to the Bornheim area. Bergerstraße has exciting design, fashion and vintage shops.
