Thanks to its Hauptbahnhof Promenades, Leipzig’s central train station is one of the most modern shopping and service centres in Germany. Between 1995 and 1997, 142 shops were created on three floors below the main concourse, offering everything from fashion, cosmetics and jewellery to consumer electronics, home accessories and fine foods. The PROMENADEN mall and its two inexpensive multi-storey car parks are open until 10 pm. And best of all, most of the shops are also open on Sundays.
From the Central Station it’s an easy walk to the nicely compact city centre - just a few yards and visitors will find themselves on Nikolaistraße, one of Leipzig’s many shopping streets. Famous department stores like Breuninger, Karstadt, Galeria Kaufhof, Peek & Cloppenburg rub shoulders in Leipzig with popular names in fashion and exclusive designer labels.
For many residents and guests, the pedestrian-friendly city centre is the preferred destination for a pleasurable shopping trip.
