The city's main shopping street for more than a century, the Zeil stretches roughly a mile across central Frankfurt.
The eastern half is motorized, the western half a broad pedestrian street spangled with trees, outdoor cafes, department stores and boutiques.
Anchor tenants like Karstadt and Kaufhof have been there for what seems like forever.
But the ever-evolving thoroughfare has newer shopping places, in particular the flashy MyZeil, an American-style shopping mall with a fitness center, food court, game arcades and child care to complement the diverse shopping.

Not better or worse than any other Karstadt store. As it's quite central, it sometimes gets crowded with tourists, especially in the area where you can buy luggage and arrange tax refunds. I wouldn't come here just to browse and look, only if I knew I needed something from here.
the best karstadt in the area. also has an asian supermarket in the lower level. very warm and inviting. even sells old stamps, letters and money. you will likely get everything you need except computers, cameras, games.
