Belgian Quarter


shopping street
The Belgian Quarter is one of the hottest city districts. 
Off the hustle and bustle in the main shopping boulevards Hohe Straße and Schildergasse, the Belgian Quarter "Belgisches Viertel" invites to linger a while and shop in a laid-back ambience. Often housed in historic buildings, which adorn the streets, the extravagant rooms alone are a must-see.

“Quality instead of Quantity” is the general maxim of the Belgian Quarter shops which offer high-quality off-mainstream fashion and designer labels. Be it clothes, shoes or accessories, you will definitely find your most favourite outfit here. With their shops in or around the Belgian Quarter, numerous young fashion designers bring innovative fashion to Cologne.

Local jewellers display unique, handmade products in their showcases. Apart from their own collections, designers offer custom-tailored jewel manufacturing.

Browse the elaborately designed brochure “Chic Belgique“ (in German only) to get more detailed information on these fashion and jewellery shops.

But there are many more treasures to discover ranging from disc records to delicious petits fours. The quarter boasts not only a lavish array of attractive shopping facilities, but also abundant trendy pubs, cafés and restaurants that radiate the charm of “old” Brussels, Liège & co. in the very heart of Cologne.



Usually most shops are open between 10:00 a. m. and 6:00 p. m. Bars, cafés and restaurants are open longer.
