Pempelfort and parts of neighbouring Derendorf still present a reasonably intact community within the city. Places to shop are centered around the Nordstrasse and many side streets.

The retail landscape is surprisingly diverse and the folks here somewhat bohemian. Besides specialist retailers and traditional corner shops the list of everyday shops is also long. Basic and organic supermarkets exist side by side, grocers, fruit stores, butchers, organic bakeries all show pride in their goods.

Furthermore, everything from mobile phones to bike shops, antiques dealers to jewellery and fashion designers, book stores to florists can also be found. From wine merchants and ice cream palours to the popular Spanish delicatessen its all here. The market stalls set up Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Saturday is also a special day to enjoy the warm, relaxed atmosphere of the quartier and grab a latte or tasty lunch.
