Number of shopping centers in Germany 1965-2018

Number of shopping centers in Germany from 1965 to 2018

Number of shopping centers in Germany 1965-2018 Germany has 479 shopping centers. Located mostly in cities, in fact increasingly so in recent years, German shopping malls are an expected fixture of urban life and a popular retail destination for both locals and visitors alike. The share of shopping centers located in rural areas and the outskirts of cities has remained very low in comparison.
From 2 to 479 malls

    Currently the malls occupy a national total of over 15.4 million square meters of retail space. Back in 1965, the number of German shopping centers was recorded at just two for the whole country. Since then figures have changed significantly. Within just five years, there were 14 shopping centers open to consumers. New ones continued to appear on the German retail landscape until 2017. However, Germany does not have the highest shopping center density in Western Europe – that would be Norway.

The fall of the mall?

   Over five million Germans shop in malls several times a week, a trend that has increased over time. Simultaneously, the same can be said for those who shop there less frequently than once a month per year. While the number of shopping centers in Germany has indeed exploded during the last four decades, it has also remained relatively stable as of late, reflecting the rise of online retail and e-commerce.
