DESTINATIONS germany frankfurt Shopping Kontrast


The boutique Kontrast, on Hanauer Landstraße 297, in the Ostend area, has six floors of modern furniture design in a distinctively East Berlin style building. Unique and high-quality items are sold here and, although the prices are high and you may not buy anything, it is easy to lose yourself among the beautiful pieces.


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.
