Join us a on a virtual tour through the Gerber Areal.
The history of this location is closely connected with the cloth mills, tanneries and dye works that once stood here. Gerber Areal’s fashion journey began in the middle of the 19th century as Metzingen’s first industrial area. The construction of the Hugo Boss clothing factory laid the foundation of what is today Outletcity. In autumn 2019, the BOSS store moved to the former Gänslen & Völter Areal, which has since been renamed Hugo Boss Platz.

Since the middle of 2020, the famous old halls of BOSS have been home to two gems of modern cross-channel shopping: the new flagship outlet stores of Tommy Hilfiger and Calvin Klein offer the opportunity to extend the shopping experience from the store into the digital world with human-sized digital shopping terminals. Additionally, Tommy’s Coffee provides a space to relax and enjoy a break. The 2021 introduction of Haribo and Bahlsen as well as the pop-up flagship store by Polo Ralph Lauren will make the area an absolute shopping highlight.

Today: unique architecture meets top premium brands

The unique architecture of the buildings alongside the river Erms – lovingly called “Erms buildings” – are not the only highlight of Gerber Areal. At top premium brands, lovers of fashion, jeans and accessories can shop to their heart’s content: popular brands such as Levi’s, Guess, Lacoste, Swarovski, Fossil and many others offer their products here. Don’t miss the personalisation service at Levi’s and get your new favourite piece beautified to your personal taste.

In the past: The foundations for today’s Outletcity

Events

Have you just crossed over the river flowing through OUTLETCITY? It played a significant role in the history of Gerber Areal. Water from the Erms river was essential for the textile mills, tanneries and dye works formerly situated here, as it provided not only water but also a source of power for their operations. Consequently, in the middle of the 19th century, this site became Metzingen's first industrial area. Thanks to the small but powerful Erms river, the transformation of raw animal hides into exclusive shoes, clothing and accessories was made possible.

Never would the tanners have guessed that the foundation of OUTLETCITY METZINGEN would be laid in their quarter: In 1938, the clothing manufacturer and outlet pioneer Hugo Boss moved into the heart of the quarter. Production in the former textile mill on Kanal Straße continued until 1974. Here was also the site of the first Hugo Boss factory outlet. Since then ever more outlet stores have moved to the surrounding area, confirming Metzingen's reputation as an international fashion metropolis.
