The German paradise for retailers is in Cologne: the Schildergasse. Each hour 12.585 potential buyers are strolling by the shops in this shopping street. In the Kaufingerstrasse in Munich this figure is 12.580 and 11.420 in Frankfurt in the Frankfurt Zeil.
The inhabitants of Cologne can be particularly proud on their shopping street given that in seven years in a row it was six times at the top of the list of Germany´s most popular shopping avenues. From a purely mathematical point of view, on Saturdays in the period from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. one out of ten inhabitants of Cologne can be met in the Schildergasse.
This ranking is part of an annual study by the Kemper´s Jones Lang LaSalle consulting firm which analyses the frequentation of the 170 most important shopping streets in Germany.
