The Riem Arcaden is the third largest shopping mall in Munich after the Olympia-Einkaufszentrum and the Einkaufs-Center Neuperlach – pep. It was built according to the design of Allmann Sattler Wappner in the Riem Messestadt district at the Willy-Brandt-Platz and opened on 10 March 2004.
Made up of three floors and 46,500 m2 retail space, and well known store chains are represented in about 120 stores.
On the upper floor a few cafes are surrounded by shops like Hugendubel, Depot, Müller, Zara and SinnLeffers, some of which extend to the ground floor. In the middle part of the ground floor some restaurant chains such as McDonald's and Nordsee, but also ordinary restaurants can be found. On the lower level, in addition to many smaller shops, larger stores like Saturn, Fielmann, Edeka (with post office) and C&A are also present.
The Riem Arcaden include a parking garage with 2,700 parking spaces, 30,000 m2 of office space, 62 apartments and a hotel with 250 rooms.
The plans for an originally planned multiplex cinema with 3,000 seats have now been discarded. In the space previously kept free area at the western end of the Willy-Brandt-Platz, an office building for non public use is now to be built.
Specifically for the Riem Arcades, that since the newly built Messestadt Riem district in 1999, no shops or supermarkets were built or planned in the surrounding area. The Riem Arcades, even with its label as large shopping center, supports the entire region with its daily needs.
