Venlo – shopping city
Venlo is a real shopping city. The friendly, historical inner city draws many visitors from the city itself, but also from the surrounding region and the German hinterland. You’ll find thousands of tourists and shoppers in the city at weekends and on the German public holidays, all of them helping to create a real international atmosphere.
In recent years Venlo has made big investments in its inner city. The Maasboulevard has led to a major extension of the shopping area. It not only adds a modern area to the historical inner city, but it also creates a new and attractive route for visitors to follow.
The extension of the Maaspoort and the building of the Grenswerk popular music venue have brought attractive new cultural facilities to Venlo. Together with the varied selection of restaurants, cafés and bars, they make Venlo’s inner city an enjoyable place to visit with numerous forms of entertainment and other facilities. Many different events complete the active and lively city center scene.
