Köln Arcaden

Cologne’s first shopping center on the right-hand side of the Rhine is located in the heart of the Kalk district. Under the eye-catching glass dome of the arcades, 128 stores and a wide range of gastronomy invite you to take a leisurely stroll. The mall is also a popular destination for trade fair visitors due to its immediate proximity to Koelnmesse.

A colorful and varied shopping world awaits customers in the glass galleries of the Köln Arcaden. In addition to well-known, international brands with a large customer base, small, more fancy labels are also at home here. The cozy oases of tranquility with cafés and restaurants with a wide variety of international offerings are ideal for short and even longer breaks. With a retail area of more than 43,300 square meters, the center attracts over 9.3 million visitors every year to the “Schäl Sick”, the “wrong” side of the Rhine.

Family-friendly feel-good atmosphere

The well-connected shopping center in the middle of the Rhineland carnival stronghold is not only the ideal destination for all friends of fashion, cosmetics, multimedia and electronics. Shopping here on a weekly basis, for example at the Rewe Market in the basement, can be combined with a relaxed stroll. Children have the opportunity to let off steam in the Kids Area. And fans of the 1st FC Köln will also find everything that makes a footballer’s heart beat faster in the official fan store.

Digital center maps for orientation, free Wi-Fi, drinking water dispensers and lockers are just some of the amenities customers can look forward to. The loyalty program with exclusive discount campaigns, promotions and services, such as free buggy rental, attracts visitors to the arcades time and time again: On average, they stay for almost 1.5 hours.

Effective public presentation areas

Opened in 2005 and completely modernized in 2017, the shopping center with its striking glass roof is the optimal presentation area for new brands and innovative products. In the highly frequented passages and on three levels, advertising space with a high public appeal is available in a modern, stylish ambience.

Temporary sales concepts such as pop-up and concept stores additionally attract the attention of a diverse clientele, which includes locals, tourists, visitors to the neighboring trade fair, and carnivalists. Located away from the city of Cologne, the arcades are still one of the most popular shopping spots in this city of millions.
