.....but glass is cheaper.
My better half loves the products of this company. Some of the products of the Austrian glass compan are kitsch rubbish, but much of it is finely detailed and makes for a good gift.
The shop was quite busy when we visited a couple of weeks before Christmas.
The shop is on the larger size, and also featured an area upstairs where hassled husbands (or partners or whoever) could relax on some sofa and enjoy a free coffee or two. There was also a free gift-wrapping service...just great for us men who dread that task each year.
Design by Joseph Maria Olbrich, and built on 1907-1909 in art nouveau style.
Why so special? Its a matter of spending times, browsing goodies, if youre not interested to spoil yourself, then think about making others happy by your gift.
What to buy: Check out those catalogue, or get any idea in fashion weeks fotos.
What to pay: Depends. But for a smart spender, better not too much to spend. For an average taste, just consider your needs. Let say 60 € for tshirt.
Düsseldorf is a shopping paradise, and has plenty of shops, department stores and huge malls, like Sevens on Konigs Allee. I went there to buy just a small lead to attach my digital camera to my laptop, but I ended up taking lunch, and browsing around the shops. The prices were so good that I almost splashed out on a completely new camera. It took some serious rationalising to get me out of there without a substantially lighter wallet. The Sevens shopping centre is, not surprisingly, seven stories of shopping, with the top three floors devoted to the German electronics and media store "Saturn" (which my German friend pronounced, with complete innocence, "Satan"). The Saturn store has just about everything you could ever possibly want to buy in terms of electrical consumer goods, and I got lost in the maze of flashy merchandise. Downstairs in the basement is an excellent and reasonably priced food hall.
What to buy: Walking out onto Konigsallee from Steinstrasse, take a left, and then you will shortly find Sevens on your left.

In 1804 when the 'K?', as it is affectionately known to locals, was built it was situated in a slightly run-down area on the edge of the city. As Dusseldorf expanded the street became more central and then it had a major face-lift at the start of the 20th century. Today the boulevard is Dusseldorf's number one shopping street with prices to match and by all accounts is the snobbish part of town.
Regardless the canal and bridges over it provides a very pleasant aspect to the city.
At the Köningsallee you will find a lot of different places for luxury shopping. And even if your budget doesn't afford you buying that much it can anyway be fun to just walk around and look on everything.
In the moment when it was opened it was known as "Kaufhaus Tietz". Today the building belongs the chain of department stores "Kaufhof", present in all the major cities in Germany. The offer of the sotre is unfortunatley not as impressive as the building itself.
If you are into Gucci, Armani and their friends this is the street for you to go. There is all the expensive shops you need here... for me only window shopping is allowed but this place and the shops isn't my cup of tea anyway! I just love watching the women in their ugly fur coats and the guys parking their big cars here!
What to buy: Clothes, Jewelry, Shoes, the world....
What to pay: Lots!
On this street there are hundreds of cloth shops mainly.This is the center of the fashion in Dusseldorf. Don't miss to buy at least a shirt.
That’s a big store on 4-5 floors. You can find everything there – from food through souvenirs till clothes. The part with the chocolates is very interesting (on the ground floor)
This impressive Jugenstil building was one of the first department stores in Germany. It was built in the beginning of the XX century after a design by architect Mr Olbrich.
It's a very elegant shopping gallery (mall) with lots of gold decoration etc.
What to buy: Exclusive stuff
What to pay: Probably even more than than outside on the street...
