    Atelier am Diebsturm: Beautiful, but far too expensive

    Pretty, but too expensive

    I saw some beautiful earthenware being displayed outside the small shop next to the Diebsturm and went in, hoping to find a nice present. I liked most of what I saw and thought I could buy one of the espresso cups. But when I asked how much it was I heard 35 Euro. This was too much for one, small cup. I'm not sure this shop is doing much business, but the cups certainly were very nice.

    If you have a bit more money in your travel purse you might consider shopping in St. Gallen. There are several nice boutiques who carry fashion that is influenced by the French taste, looking quite nice, but being quite expensive. There are also many other stores, you could find many things here – clothes, household decoration items, jewelry, books etc., if you are willing to pay for it.

    What to buy: Everything

    All kinds of shops: Ravensburg

    When I am in the area, Ravensburg is my favorite place to shop. There are two main streets with shops as well as some side streets and you get a good selection of clothes here. A larger department store (a tiny bit upscale) and two or three large boutiques as well as several small ones cater to most clothing tastes. You have some bookshops here as well, some nice stationary and craft supply stores and some lovely shops with all kinds of goodies for a well-tended home like good glasses, fabrics and pretty but useless decorative items. I never went to Ravensburg without buying anything (okay, I admit, I hardly ever go shopping without buying anything….)

    All kinds of shops: Konstanz and Bregenz

    Bregenz (Austria) and Konstanz have nice shopping areas. There are no special shops here, it is what you generally find in larger towns, but if you care for a bit of shopping, you are fine here, and there are more shops here than in the other towns of the area.

    All kinds of shops: Lindau Island shopping

    by Phillylawyer_19107 Written Dec 30, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On the island of Lindau there is a shopping street with shops ranging from chains like a Douglas perfume store or a Benetton store to more or less touristy shops. There are also some more expensive boutiques where you can find some nice clothes and in some of the side streets there are antique stores. If you look for more hip clothes (or cheaper ones), try the Lindaupark which is not on the island but the mainland, it features a large drugstore / perfume store, a book shop, a shoe shop with a quite good selection, a tea shop and several shops with clothes.

    What to buy: Jewelry, clothes, shoes, books, perfume, cosmetics, tea, household items, furniture, antiques, kitschy souvenirs, cuckoo clocks
