    “Ohh de Cologne”: “Ohh de Cologne”

    by Oleg_D. Written Oct 3, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    What is the most famous souvenir you can bring home from Cologne? Of course this is Eau de Cologne! That’s no problem if you have too little time to visit house #4711 where cologne was produced since 1792. You can visit souvenir shop “Ohh de Cologne” situated near the cathedral. You will be able to buy any sort of famous Eau de Cologne in that shop in five minutes walking distance from main railway station (Hauptbanhoff).

    Well, if you are going to do shopping in Cologne then you should know that a lot of different shops and boutiques are situated at the Hohe Strasse. That street starts from the Wallrafplatz Square near the Cathedral and runs southward. So, go south and enjoy your shopping. In four hundred and fifty meters turn to the right at Schildergasse Street. This is another shopping street in Cologne. In two hundred and fifty meters near Antoniterkirche Church you will see big department store Peek & Cloppenburg.

    Kaufhof: Traditional German department store

    by Scandic Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Well what Macy's is for New Yorkers and Marks and Spencer is for Britishs, I guess Kaufhof is that for Germans. So Cologne has its own, located close to Hohe Strasse, alogn Bayardsgasse in Altstadt Sud (SOuthern Old Town).

    Schildergasse: For The Serious Shoppers

    by johngayton Updated Sep 20, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cologne's Schildergasse is the only place in the city where I felt a little claustrophobic but then I'm not a serious shopper and was just wandering.

    This seems to be the city's main shopping street with its various designer-label places and chain store branches. According to the tourist office's website this is officially Germany's busiest shopping street with over 13,000 visiters per hour on an average Saturday afternoon.

    Too busy for me!

    What to buy: Pretty much everything!

    What to pay: Euros, Euros, Euros!

    Mayersche: If You Run Out Of Travel Reading

    by johngayton Written Sep 20, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a huge bookstore, part of a national chain, which has a good selection of foreign language books, not just in English. As well as the usual airport-style best-sellers they also have non-fiction titles and even textbooks.

    What to pay: Expect to pay a bit more than you would back home, but not too much more.

    Great shopping opportunities

    by tomerik Written Jul 13, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The streets in the pedestrian city centre are full of shopping opportunities and you will find everything from reasonable priced clothes to designer wear.

    Staff is generally very helpful and speaks good english. Be aware that some department stores do not accept Visa or Mastercards but they have distributors where you can withdraw money.

    What to pay: Expect the same prices as everywhere else in western europe.

    Hohe Straße and Schildergasse: You've gotta really wanna shop....

    by garridogal Updated Apr 13, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is one of those crazy, busy shopping areas where you can find all sorts of clothing stores (mainly trendy), fast food places and what seems like millions of people; the kind of place that'll make you watch your bag for fear of pick-pockets.

    I don't generally enjoy spending a lot of time in places like this as I'm not into feeling like a rat and most of the clothing is too "young" for me. But hey, if it's your cup 'o tea....then go for it!

    Hohe Straße - the shopping zone

    by King_Golo Updated Mar 14, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Just like all German cities, Cologne has a pedestrian zone in which you can shop until you drop. In Hohe Straße and the surrounding streets you can find more or less everything you can think of - electronics, clothes, food, jewelries, and so on...
    Just stroll around and take lots of money with you!

    What to buy: whatever you need

    What to pay: the same as everywhere in Germany, maybe slightly above

    Nunk Music: 2ndhand vinyl junk shop

    by pieter_jan_v Written Dec 16, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Nunk is a real junk shop. The shop is an extended room with a covered garage area at the "hof".
    Half of the merchandise is still unpacked in boxes at the semi-outside part.
    Records are all the place in all kind of cabinets/shelfs.
    The main area is the cashier/coffee room with refreshments.
    Music is at a loud setting and the speakers blasts next to the boxes with records.

    Although there's many junk, the owner has a good financial judgement of his customers and asks prices well over the average value for such a junk shop.

    Inspect your records before you buy. Sleeves could have been out in the wet.

    What to buy: Alternative music and stuff from the 70s.

    What to pay: Too much.
