Wiesbaden shopping is filled with many different shopping streets and plenty of retail opportunities, even for the most die-hard shopaholic.
Wiesbaden Shopping Tip
Most German shops aren’t open on Sundays, so if you are in town for a weekend trip, be sure to get your purchases made on Saturday!
In Wiesbaden, hours are generally Mondays through Fridays, from 10 am to 7 pm, and Saturdays from 10 am to 4pm.
Langgasse and Kirchgasse Shopping District
This Wiesbaden shopping zone is a pedestrian area with a large variety of retail opportunities. The shopping streets of Langgasse and Kirchgasse stretch out for about one kilometer. There are large chain stores as well as smaller, privately-owned boutiques.
The pedestrian zone was recently renovated with sparkling new pavement and many newly added restaurants for a break during your long shopping days. And there’s also the Mauitiusplatz. This plaza has also been revitalized and features a lovely fountain and even more restaurants.
Before you leave the pedestrian area, be sure to explore the little side streets that jut out of the main ones. You may find some hidden treasures as you stroll through the quirky boutiques, tea houses and galleries. :-)
Altstadt und Markt Shopping Area
The Altstadt und Markt area offers a wonderful opportunity for shopping amid the historical gems of Wiesbaden. This Wiesbaden shopping district specializes in luxury items, like olive oil, wine, exotic spices, jewelry and leather goods.
One of the highlights of the Altstadt is its goldsmiths where you can watch these masters at work. And if you’re in town on the right day, you can even catch the wonderful Wiesbaden’s Farmers’s Market, just in front of City Hall.
Those in search of antiques will find themselves right at home on the Taunusstraße. This is the go-to place for old and priceless treasure hunting! You’ll also find home and garden accessories and specialty foods in this interesting street.
If you want the latest in haute couture, then Wilhelmstraße is the place for you. In addition to the hottest designers, you can also scope out fine jewelry, Italian shoes, handcrafted furniture and even more gold.
The locals refer to this upscale Wiesbaden shopping street as “the Rue.”
