Shopping: Bits and Pieces

Shopping in the old town
Almost all tourists think that the “Lago Center” is the place to shop. The trendy shops, however, are just waiting to be discovered round the corner. Instead of going to “Das Depot“, a smaller Ikea version for living accessories, you should check out “Voglhaus“. The ultimate gift shops are “Blässhuhn” and “Glückseeligkeit” with their popular home-made things. Between breakfast plates, bicycle saddle covers and stylish city bags you will also find some unique specimens.

Designer-Toys and Egon-Goodies
Those who prefer to spend their student grants on designer toys instead of felt hats and aroma candles should check out “Craplabs“. Beside the toys for grown-ups, that are enormously popular in the USA, the style-conscious shop located near the university offers shirt printing, buttons, stickers and wall tattoos. The main focus of the range of products is their own motive “Egon” (also available as an iPhone-skin).

A ‘Schachbrettli’ for dessert
Comic fans can look forward to visiting the “Seetroll“, a specialist shop by freaks for freaks, which has also specialised in role-playing games, playing cards and table tops. Those who wish for a special “working surface” should take a look at the functional metal table sets from the company “Raumwerk” (between 200 and 300 euros). The nearby speciality chocolate shop “Läderach” awaits you for a break from shopping with chocolates like ‘Schachbrettli’ or strawberry-pepper.
