Welcome to the stores+shops digital store guide. Discover a selection of the most interesting retail concepts in Düsseldorf and Cologne.

For EuroCIS 2024 from 27-29 February in Düsseldorf, stores+shops has put together a special with shops that stand out thanks to interesting technological features or innovative services in the areas of checkout, payment, digital signage and much more. Maps and location markings are intended to provide orientation, especially for non-local trade visitors to Messe Düsseldorf.


Düsseldorf is a city famous for its trade fairs and fashion. With a regionally high purchasing power, the city is home to around 640,000 people and a major shopping destination for a further 2.7 million potential customers living in the surrounding areas. At the heart of the city centre is Königsallee, Germany’s most-frequented luxury mile. The ‘Kö-Bogen’, built by star architect Daniel Libeskind, extends the northern end of the shopping street and links up with Schadowstrasse, which has been a predominantly pedestrian zone since 2020. Close by is the KII, a two-part, architecturally innovative building ensemble completed in 2021. It features Europe’s largest green façade, made up of an eight-kilometre long hornbeam hedge and over 30,000 plants.

With a population of over one million, Cologne is Germany’s fourth-largest city and, thanks to its location in the west of the country, also a key destination for shopping tourists from the neighbouring Benelux states. The main shopping streets in Cologne’s city centre – Schildergasse and Hohe Strasse – merge with each other and can be fully explored by making a loop starting at the cathedral. The adjoining Ehrenstrasse, formerly something of an alternative fashion street, is another of the city’s top locations.
