Arkaden shopping mall is a modern building with 3 shopping levels and a basement car park. Arkaden is not so large and offers a limited range of shops, dominated by a vast Saturn electronic goods palace and a large DM drug store. The "Sparkasse" bank is the third largest occupant of Arkaden. But also specialty shops can be found, like Crabtree & Evelyn cosmetics and Rieker shoes. Also the Muenster Pablo Picasso Museum is established in Arkaden. However, the deciding factor to start the Muenster visit with Arkaden shopping mall is the spacious basement car park, which is easily reached from the Ludgeri Platz roundabout and then into the Koenigsstrasse. This Koenigsstrasse is dead end on the pedestrianized Muenster Altstadt, but just as the street runs out, to the right is the entrance to the car park. (Watch out. The entrance is the left lane.) As Arkaden is right on the edge of the Altstadt, a short walk brings you to "Galeria Kaufhof" and "Karstadt" if you like to shop, or to the "Prinzipalmarkt", the old City Hall and the Muenster Cathedral if you are looking for history and ambiance.
