Retail & gastronomy

People like to shop in Hilden - in an attractive pedestrian zone with a wide range of shopping opportunities, services and gastronomy. Without any stress or hustle and bustle - that's what makes shopping fun!

The range of products offered by major brand-name companies such as Peek & Cloppenburg, Saturn, H&M, Deichmann or C&A is supplemented by numerous small boutiques and specialist stores where the focus is on personal advice. The weekly market and several supermarkets complete the offer. Whether it's a business lunch, a lunch break or a quick snack - whether it's fish, bistro cuisine, home cooking, a coffee standing up or enjoying the sun and a beer at the market, the range of Hilden's gastronomy is varied and good.

Numerous events complete the picture of a lively city center, such as the Hilden artists' market, book markets, the annual Christmas market and much more.

At the same time, Hilden's city center is always easy to reach: on foot, by bike, by bus and train, or by car.

The city center can be reached quickly via a well-developed network of bicycle paths, the bus stops "Fritz Gressard Platz" and "Gabelung" are located directly in the pedestrian zone, and motorists can park cheaply, centrally and conveniently in the city center parking garages.
