It includes more than 130 premium and luxury brands such as Burberry, Fendi, Gucci, MCM, Michael Kors, Nike, Prada, Polo Ralph Lauren and the world's largest BOSS outlet store.

Offer a unique shopping experience accompanied by a variety of gastronomic offerings. You can start the day with a delicious coffee at Starbucks, enjoy fresh dishes at Mövenpick Market for lunch and discover the Almresi Alpine menu for dinner. The restaurants and cafés, which provide a welcome break, are a perfect combination of aesthetics and gastronomy. Almresi and its chic chalet or the impressive bay window of the Bauhaus-style restaurant Olio e Pane: the architecture and interior design here is as varied as the culinary proposals of the gastronomic scene. Outletcity combines fashion and gastronomy for the pleasure of all the senses.

For decades, the small town of Metzingen has gradually established itself as the most important outlet centre in Europe*. Today it is a popular shopping destination far beyond the German borders. In order to achieve this status as a textile mecca, the city has remained true to its traditions, carrying out extensive and comprehensive renovations. Sustainable buildings are a sign of ecological commitment, but they also underline the style of which the city is very proud. To find yourself in the heart of fashion and lifestyle, you have to cross the vineyards. It is hard to imagine that the biosphere reserve hides a personality characteristic of big cities.

With the construction of the "Enzian Höfe" in the summer of 2020, a new relaxation area was created. The Beauty, Home & Living and Watches & Jewellery areas complete the Outletcity range and guarantee an even richer shopping experience. A must-see location for anyone looking for exclusive collections and a refined selection of top-of-the-range items. Wellness and interior design are also part of the programme. The new area now offers the opportunity to buy lifestyle products to decorate your home with taste, dress in style and have an unforgettable time. In addition to the arrival of new brands such as Le Creuset, Pandora, Ravensburger, Storck, Villeroy & Boch, Kneipp and Lambert, some have moved to the new zone, including Douglas, WMF, Zwilling, Home & Cook and Möve. Young and old alike can thus enjoy a world of fashion, beauty, decoration, architecture, games and gastronomic delights.

Quality of service, advantages, entertainment, everything is there to spend a pleasant moment

When it comes to services, Outletcity is innovative. To ensure a hassle-free and relaxed shopping experience, a complete sanitary concept has been developed. It supports and reinforces compliance with the rules for the benefit of everyone, visitors and employees alike. In cooperation with 130 brands, special health and safety services have been developed that go far beyond standard regulations.
