Malls in the Ruhr Metropolis

A great variety of places to spend the day

Written by Garry on


The Ruhr metropolis is vast. Stretching along and across the Ruhr river valley, many large towns and cities present modern, light and well structured shopping malls.

Whether the vast CentrO on the outskirts of Oberhausen, or downtown centres such as Limbecker Platz in Essen, Thier Gallerie in Dortmund and the Forum in Duisburg, the variety is surprising.

For expats and visitors alike, the Ruhr region is a great place to go shopping.

City Palais

The mall in the city middle of Duisburg is one of the most unique malls in the Ruhr region for consumers to enjoy. Modern and spacious, the shopping centre is host to many brand labels and the food hall houses a variety of international cuisine, offering a great day out.
