Karlsruhe, “Gate to the Black Forest”, is the ideal target for eager shoppers. Spacious fashion and department stores, exquisite boutiques, modern shopping centers, hip trend-stores and innovate specialist shops make a shopping trip to Karlsruhe a real experience.
The Kaiserstraße, Baden’s longest shopping zone, is Karlsruhe’s main artery. Taking precedence are the big cosmetic firms that can be found in many pedestrian zones. In amongst them however a few traditional shops like the Schöpf Fashion House have been able to keep their businesses running. Despite the hustle and bustle of shoppers there are still many street cafés in which one can thoroughly relax. The side streets off Kaiserstraße present inviting opportunities for individualists to have a rummage.
