For us germans it is a special place, cause we can buy duty free there, even though it is german ground. But of course the common restrictions concerning the amount of alcohol, parfume or coffee have to be considered!
Compare and calculate!
What to buy: Alcohol, parfume, coffee.
...up to 40% less than the price of designer scents and toiletries found in the States or many large cities in Europe- with wonderful clearance specials as well.
What to buy: Being a haven for sales tax-free shopping, on the lower level of the Island you can find an endless variety of cosmetic shops that offer top European perfume and toiletries for men and women, for up to 40% less than you would expect to pay on the mainland or Stateside. There are in fact, organized daily ferries of day trippers shipped in who ravage the island in search of such coveted goodies from Helmut Lang, Bulgari, Hermés, Versace, Burberry and the like from approximately 12:30-4 pm daily- so it's best to do your shopping before or after these hours if you want to avoid the hoardes of bargain seekers .
