Shopping in Kassel

Kassel is not exactly known to be a shopping metropolis, instead it is known for its culture, the Mountain Park Wilhelmshöhe and the documenta art exhibition. Nevertheless, this town has quite a bit to offer shopping fans. In the city centre, between the Martinskirche and the town hall, unfolds a true shopper’s paradise: the Königstraße. Countless speciality stores line up along Kassel’s main road; you will find clothes stores, chemists and bookshops. Located at the Königsplatz, the central square of Kassel, is also the City Point. This gallery has dozens of shops and is a true Mecca for shoppers. And when you take a break in the ice cream parlour inside the gallery, you can enjoy peering over the Königsplatz and Königstrasse and turn your day into a whole new Kassel experience.
