A wide variety of national and international catering establishments offer plenty of culinary choice, and well-known chain stores are represented alongside regional and local traders. Every day, up to 35,000 visitors come to the shopping mall, which has strengthened the city's reputation in the region as a shop-2 ping metropolis. In addition, Limbecker Platz in Essen regularly hosts activities and events.
The shopping mall is located in the heart of the Ruhr city Essen.
The interior of the shopping mall, designed by ECE architects, is bright and welcoming, with the main walkways flooded with light across each of the three and a half levels. All levels are easily accessible via escalators and lifts. Quiet areas with fountains, high-quality furniture and attractive plant arrangements encourage visitors to relax and unwind.
The long store frontage alone is a special highlight, while the central element of this stylish, transparent building is the square thoroughfare with a rotunda at each corner. The main entrance is situated on Limbecker Platz, extending the Limbecker Strasse pedestrian zone. Another ground-level entrance on Berliner Platz is connecting with the underground station below. There are also entrance rotundas on all the parking decks, with approximately 2,000 spaces available on levels 2 to 5. Lifts and escalators takes shoppers back to their cars straight from the mall.
