As you might expect, this big, modern, wealthy and international city serves as a shopping Mecca for the entire region. The Zeil, reputedly the busiest shopping street in Germany, is a pedestrian zone between the Hauptwache and Konstablerwache. It’s loaded with department stores, clothing shops, shoe stores, boutiques of all kinds, restaurants, cafes and people. The Hauptwache, in the center of Frankfurt, has two shopping areas, one above and one below ground. Schillerstrasse, another pedestrian zone, lies between Hauptwache and Eschenheimer Turm, near the stock exchange. Walking from Schillerstrasse northeast toward Eschenheimer Tor, you pass many elegant boutiques and specialty shops. Southwest of the Hauptwache is Goethestrasse, with exclusive stores evocative of Paris or Milan.
