everything...: Lange Straße
This is the main shopping street accommodating quite a number of shops selling basic stuff like food, clothing, shoes, mobile phones, souvenirs etc. It is a pedestrianized zone so just strolling along is nice if the weather allows it. Nothing special but good for everyday shopping... You should not go there a saturday afternoon, though - most shops close at 14 afternoon!
What to buy: See what you get ;o)
What to pay: fairly average
- Budget Travel
- Arts and Culture
Elisenpark: Well, every town needs a mall...
This is not a shop, but a shopping centre, located on the outskirts of the town. There are all kinds of shops here - from multimedia store Media Markt to shoe shops, DIY and gigantic supermarket Real. Nothing here is special or unique, just as you would expect from another out-in-the-fields-shopping centre but its quite handy if you just need something.
What to buy: Everything you cannot get in Greifswald will probably be available here.
What to pay: Geiz ist Geil - Slogan of a multimedia superstore and meaning that it`s the cheap things that rule - also in this centre ;o)
Well, I visited Greifswald on a Saturday. Streets in the centre were empty. No store, no pub, no restaurant, not even the tourist information were opened. First I thought Greifswald is a ghost town. Then I found some open restaurants close to the market square.
What to buy: If you find a open store buy what you get! ;-)
