Museums, historic buildings, luxury boutiques, markets, antiques, a leafy avenue, two bridges… This is the "Kö Boulevard"!
The city's backbone.
Königsallee Avenue divides the city in two and is also the backbone of the city’s commercial zone. It is lined with a mixture of historic buildings, such as the Opera and theatre, and the most prestigious and luxurious shops of the city. This boulevard, also known as “Kö”, was built along the Rhine River amid a beautiful leafy area, so that everybody would know where they are. Along the avenue, you will find shops and boutiques of some of the world’s most famous designers, along with other, more high street, shops. Hidden away among the museums, art galleries and surrounding alleyways, you will also find all types of local shops, such as book shops, music shops, antique shops and, at certain times of the year, markets and second-hand stalls. Don’t miss a visit to the bridges that connect the two riverbanks.
