Castrop-Rauxel Shopping

  • eddilowe's Profile Photo
    This was in the supermarket carpark

    by eddilowe Written Aug 18, 2005

    Real hypermarket was a great find. One hypermarket is pretty much like another but we found this one and it was very useful. I think it is part of a chain...

    It has a massive car park.

    Opening hours Mon-Sat 8am - 8pm

    What to buy: Everything!

    Map

    Location map

    The directions are written in German. These basic words should help:

    Richtung - direction
    Rechts - Rights
    Links - Left
    Gross - big

    I think it says something about a big factory or power station?? I'm still only at basic level in German
    :o(

    What to pay: As far as I can remember it was very cheap.

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In Germany the crime has growing up like other states in Europe . Be careful with your valuables , especialy where a lot of peoples meet in the area !!
    PICK-POCKETING may be the main CRIME when the CITY is CROWDED .

    Urgent Calling for POLICE : 110
    in case of Fire : 112
