Already months before the opening, the shop space was leased to renowned retailers, including the fashion shops H&M, Pohland, New Yorker, Vero Moda, Gerry Weber, Tommy Hilfiger and Marc O’Polo as well as a large Rewe supermarket. An integral part of the leasing plans was a leasing concept friendly to medium-sized businesses, meant to strengthen the local and regional trade and provide it with real development prospects. The center also offers a wide range of activities throughout the year, which the visitors may participate in free of charge, thus providing a high level of leisure and entertainment at no expense whatsoever.
