The motto of the Bad Münstereifel City Outlet is modern shopping in a medieval at-mosphere. The town is famous for its historical town centre, which is completely listed. During the height of the medieval town as a long distance trading centre, there were connections to the economic areas of Frankfurt and Aachen, connected via Antwerp to the North Sea trade and was Cologne’s most important trade partner. At that time it was above all the local wool weavers who produced quality material and the tanners, who produced quality leather goods, especially shoes. If you want to shop price-consciously in Bad Münstereifel, you will find an abundancy of clothes, shoes, accessories and much more in the well- restored shops of the City Outlet, which opened in 2014. The Bad Münstereifel City Outlet is the first of its kind to open in an historic Old Town. Here no scenic backdrops were created; instead the historic buildings were restored and brought back to life. Where else would you have the opportunity to go shopping in a building like the "French Lily", that was already constructed as an office building in 1472, or the "Windeck Haus" the most beautiful half -timbered house, which has even been used as an image in a postage stamp.
