The ups and downs since the beginning of the corona pandemic are reflected in hardly any other indicator as vividly as in the pedestrian frequencies in the German inner-city locations, the course of which at times resembled a rollercoaster ride. During the lockdowns, historically low numbers were recorded in some cases, but they also recovered very quickly in between and have approached the level of previous years since the summer of 2021. The rapid recovery speed of the frequencies with improving framework conditions clearly indicates that stationary retail will continue to be very well received and sends a positive signal for future development. Against the background of the currently very high incidences and the first partial lockdowns in some federal states, the rollercoaster of emotions is likely to continue at the beginning of 2022. It is therefore too early to make reliable statements about the absolute development of pedestrian frequencies after the pandemic has been overcome. During the various wave movements, however, it has been shown that the relative placement of the most important shopping miles in the nationwide overall ranking has remained comparatively stable.

Based on this finding, following the stabilization process, BNP Paribas Real Estate has been collecting pedestrian frequencies in top locations in a total of 27 cities * since mid-2021. The aim was to make shopping streets comparable with one another and to create orientation values ​​for ranking and city categories in order to illustrate the classification of different A-locations in the nationwide context.

For this purpose, an interactive data tool was developed with which the current pedestrian frequencies for almost 100 shopping streets can be analyzed and compared on different aggregation levels. The “BNPPRE Footfall Dashboard” clearly shows how the various shopping miles in the cities involved, from Aachen to Würzburg, perform in detail.

At a glance – important benchmarks for pedestrian traffic in 2021:

  • The top 10 shopping streets have an average of 9,000 visitors per hour.
  • A little more than 6,000 people are ranked 10 to 20 on average.
  • For the top shopping miles in the A cities, around 8,300 passers-by are the guideline.
  • On a national average, the A-locations reach a frequency of around 4,300 people per hour.

The “BNPPRE Footfall Dashboard” can be found under the following link (the individual cities and categories can be selected here using the drop-down bar):


* Aachen, Berlin, Bonn, Braunschweig, Bremen, Dortmund, Dresden, Düsseldorf, Erfurt, Essen, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Hanover, Heidelberg, Karlsruhe, Cologne, Leipzig, Mainz, Mannheim, Munich, Münster, Nuremberg, Osnabrück, Stuttgart, Trier , Wiesbaden and Würzburg
