Shopping Streets in Neuss

Neuss is a relatively small place which has sat close to the Rhine for over 2,000 years. The centre is compact and is now separated from the river by the harbour. The presence of a cathedral begs the debate whether Neuss is defined as a town or a city.

Shops are mainly found in the centre of Neuss. Its main axis has been progressively pedestrianised and the consumer experience improved. Nowadays the trams travel quietly and smoothly through the city, enabling better access to the neighbouring capital of Düsseldorf.


A main thoroughfare runs runs the length of the city centre of Neuss. Commencing near the railway station and ending at the ancient city gateway, the street used to be a Roman way.

The far end of the shopping street is home to fast food eateries before becoming populated with retail stores. A more vibrant area with cafes in cross streets is closer to the Markt.
