Budget hotels in Cologne
If you're looking for the best place in Cologne for a shopping spree, then head for the Schildergasse or the Hohe Strasse where you'll find everything your heart desires in this vibrant and lively shopping area.
The Cologne shopping arcades in the city centre and around the city ring offer fashion at a reasonable price
and you really can shop till you drop. With an abundance of large and small retail stores and a modern ambience, you will find yourself lured from one shop to the next.
Away from the hustle and bustle of the main shopping boulevards, the Belgian Quarter offers a slightly more relaxed atmosphere. Small boutiques and shops – many in historic buildings – offer high-quality fashion and designer labels under the motto "Quality not Quantity". But the Belgian Quarter is also a veritable treasure trove for other items, such as rare record shops and bespoke confectionery stores with delicious petits fours.
While not exactly cheap, a wonderful place to eat is the "Alte Wartesaal" (Johannisstrasse 11),
which offers a great vista of the cathedral and is also known as a celebrity hangout where the city's elite and international stars come to savour the gnocchi as well as the view.
And if you're into celebrity spotting, another favourite haunt is the "Maca-Ronni" (Hahnenstrasse 16a), which offers live music every evening and a great party atmosphere.
