Germany Shopping

  • Downtown Pedestrian Zone

    Munich Shopping

    The CD department on the top floor of Ludwig Beck's department store is the best place I know of in Germany to buy opera and classical music CDs. This last time I was looking for a particular recording of Arrigo Boito’s opera Mefistofele, a Sony recording from 1988 with Samuel Ramey, Placido Domingo, Eva Marton, and the Hungarian State Orchestra...

    Berlin Shopping

    Quite a number of street-sellers and shops, situated mostly around Checkpoint Charlie, offers "reliquia - reliquiorum" of what was once DDR (Deutche Demokratische Republik). It is nothing but worthless trash! Do not waste your time and money here. DDR was created for one reason only, to punnish Germans even more, I am really glad it finally...

    Mainz Shopping

    There are so many ultramodern stores right across the square from the Cathedral. It's very easy to get lost in them. What I found good was a number of kiosks where you can have a snack; a large number of nenches around Market Square where you can relax having a snack... clothes, gufts, food and drink. 50-100 Euro

    Kathe Wohlfahrt, and I had previously been into one of her Xmas shops. The item's for sale are by no means cheap, but they are beautiful and look to be of very good quality.

  • Mediterraneo - Italian products

    Speyer Shopping

    Those who know me better know that I have a deep passion for Italy, the people, their passions, the art & culture, the landscapes and nature and for the culinary delights throughout all Italy. It breaks my heart that, due to job reasons, I haven’t been to Italy in the last 17 months. So I often find myself wandering around looking for Italian food...

  • KaDeWe (Kaufhaus des Westens)

    Berlin Shopping

    Ka-We-De nowadays is known as one of the most expensive shopping centers in Europe. I believe it depends on its rich history. Shops here appeared already in 1907, I believe, building itself is quite old as well. It was wide variety goods shopping center in Germany, presented already even exotic sea fruits, new World fashions, so on. As for me,...

  • Old Town

    Düsseldorf Shopping

    Since Uerige is a tourist stop of the highest order they also sell souvenirs. There is a glass case from which you choose from amongst the beery goodies. Alt bier glasses and beer mats are probably easiest to transport but there are lots of things to buy including swing top bottles of the world renowned beer.

  • Snowballs - Schneeballen

    Rothenburg ob der Tauber Shopping

    Go to any bakery in RODT and select your choice of Schneeball. If you go to a bakery called 'Diller's' (and apparently there are a few of them around town), you will certainly get a wide variety of Schneeball to sample (chcolate covered, cinnamon, powder sugar, speckled, etc), and these are all machine-made, I am told. Other bakeries sell...

  • Farmers' Market

    Speyer Shopping

    In case you are in Speyer on Saturdays (or Tuesdays or Thursdays) and are looking for small snacks and not necessary a full lunch meal, I can highly recommend going to the farmers’ market, which is held on “Königsplatz”, just south of the main street, Maximilianstreet. It is a small market, but you can buy fresh produces from the surrounding...

  • Munich Airport Shops

    Munich Shopping

    The duty-free shop was reasonably good in its selection of perfumes, alcohol and also European and German souvenirs such as beer, sausages, chocolate etc. Since it was a couple of weeks before Easter, there were pretty Easter-themed chocolate souvenirs on sale when I went. I can't be sure, but they might look better than they taste. ;) Souvenirs,...

    You must stop in to any one of the stores that sells beer steins. Germany is known for their beer steins and coo-coo clocks. I have a whole collection of them from different parts of Germany.

    We travelled to Munich in early december so the Christmas Market was already set on Marienplatz. It’s called Christkindl Markt with numerous wooden booths/stalls everywhere around the square but also along the pedestrian street towards Karksplatz.

  • Hofbräuhaus Gift Shop

    Munich Shopping

    If you're looking to get some souvenirs, a good place to buy a Hofbrauhaus t-shirt is NOT from the in-restaurant store itself. I managed to get a really nice Hofbrauhaus t-shirt from a souvenir shop that is in the row of shops adjacent to it. So head there for your souvenir bargain hunting! If you want to buy a mug, just buy a mug of beer and...

    I found many shopping centers around the city, all of them tempting to buy buy things. Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately for my wallet?!) I was there during holidays and most days shops were closed. However what I was looking for and could not find one, was a delicatessen store, where I could buy some genuine german products. You see, I love to...

  • Fünf Höfe

    Munich Shopping

    Munich being a big city certainly has the advantage to provide more bookstores than the “cultural backwater” town where I live does. The biggest bookstore is Hugendubel with several locations throughout the city. Their biggest store is directly at Marienplatz. Whenever I come to Munich I make sure I have room enough in my luggage to bring back a...

It is located on the Rosenheimerstraße a 5 minute walk from the German Museum. Be it herbs...

    be prepared to find all kinds of steins to drink your beer... Good taste seems to be out of question sometimes though .... These steins with the tin-cover on top were originally ment in order to be able to carry the beer home from the local inn or brewery. With such a cover it would not be spilled over and the bees would have no chance to taste as...

    This is one of several fine music stores in downtown Munich. They have a good selection of books, sheet music and instruments. Second photo (update): It's now called Bauer & Hieber, but otherwise looks very much the same. (Klingt gut means "sounds good".)

    A wonderful little shop, it seems like being forgotten during a big tidy up, modernisation of the city. All they sell is flour, many different types. also corn and wheat and mixtures, rice, ecologically friendly produced grains and cereals, ingredients for baking, and nuts. In little white packages or in huge sacks! maybe a special flour mix for...

  • Special lemonade, made in Germany

    If you are thirsty on your travels through Germany and you like a special drink, try and find Bionade. It is usually available at train stations or airports, and of course in selected supermarkets (for example tegut, Globus, REWE).I had my first sampling in 2007 and liked it immediately because it is not sweet, only very slightly sparkling and very...

  • Souvenirs and local crafts

    The most amazing handcrafts I saw were the German tunic dresses. Most parts are sold separately. First there is a white blouse, then the long over tunic, stockings and shoes....if you add all the parts together, in 2014 the whole kit often came to at least 600 Euros in a specialty handcrafts or souvenir shop! Which is why I just got a photo! Very...

  • Not so Supermarkets

    German supermarkets are, in general, pretty bad. They suffer from a combination of deep discount dependence, and a near total inability to consider the needs of the customer. Germany is the deep discount capital of Europe. Germans are obsessed with low prices, and this has led to a market dominance of deep discount supermarkets like Aldi and Lidl...

  • Pharmacies/Chemists/Drug Stores

    From paracetamol to prescriptions there is only one place in Germany to serve your needs: licensed pharmacies. There's no supermarket competition selling jarfuls of painkillers at discount prices here, so you will have to pay over the odds in these small private drug stores. While the prices are higher than you would find in the UK or US, the...
