Shopping? But where?
Well, it's a small town and if Königs Wusterhausen has something like a "shopping street", then it would be the Bahnhofstraße. It's nothing spectacular, you'll find the normal things like photo shops, restaurants, jewellery shops, book shop, travel agency, music shop, a little department store etc

Need some money? :P
You'll find the bank "Sparkasse Dahme-Spreewald" at this address:
Mo, Wed, Fri: 09.00-16.00
Tue, Thu: 09.00-18.00
Why I tell you stuff like opening times of a bank and where you will find it? Well, in some cities I spent ages to find one and not all have open all day. If I would have had some more detailed infos before, it would have spared me some trouble and saved time.
TIP: If you plan to get yourself some money there out of the opening times, make at least sure that no one sees you. I know it's easier said than done, but try to behave as normal as possible :P

School for the Blind and Visually impaired
Favorite thing: *School for the Blind and Visually handicapped of the State Brandenburg*
I wasn't sure where to add this, but I like the architecture of this building and it's located right next to my old Highschool. But one thing is sure, the School for the Blind is much nicer to look at, than my own boring old school *g*
In 1889 the emperor Wilhelm II ordered the construction of this school. It was finished in 1901. The biggest part of the money was given by Herman Schmidt and because of this fact today the building has his name. At the beginning approx. 100 blind people attended this school and a lot of them even lived there. Wilhelm II often visited the school and gave much money for decorating the school with magnificent pictures and mosaics of Christian people. From 1933 till 1952 it was used for other things. During the war it was used as military hospital, later for administration offices and fro 1951 on again as School for the Blind.
