Shopping in Lingen

 
We would like to invite you to a shopping tour through our city. The spacious marketplace forms the center of the downtown area. It is the 'first address' of Lingen. The medieval Town Hall, the 'Alte Posthalterei' and - the rich in tradition - burgher houses provide the place with a special charm. Major musical concerts taking place in front of the magnificent historical backdrop highlight the exceptional events. On Wednesday- and Saturday mornings the marketplace is reserved for the marketers. They offer an abundance of fresh green groceries directly from the neighborhood.
 
Dutch marketers offer a multitude of catering specialties. The shopping streets run star-shaped toward the downtown area of Lingen. Every street has its own character and a different focus. Besides the well-known branch managers there are a number of stores led by owners at a high level and a clear profile with their own characteristic style. Currently there are stores and cafes, taverns and boutiques, markets restaurants lining up in the pedestrian zone. This particular shopping area is spread over a length of over two kilometers. At the same time Lingen is known to be a city of short distances: There are approximately 2.400 parking spaces in parking structures and under-ground parking garages. The 'Lookentor' opened in 2007. It has turned into a very special shopping treat in the downtown shopping-mall. It still is the biggest shopping-mall in the Emsland. The 230 meter long and roofed elegant promenade for strolling extends between the 'Lookentor' and Marienstraße and connects two out of four shopping streets. There are 50 attractive shops with a space of about 16.000 square meters. Restaurants catering to different meals and additional all-year entertainment programs make the 'Lookentor' to a shopping mile, rich in variety.
