Shopping and More Saving Tips ...

Shopping in Munich, Germany
Let's face it: shopping is fun. And shopping Made in Germany is a wonderful experience presenting a huge variety of top quality goods plus a wide range of different places to shop. Are you looking for international fashions with super savings directly from the brand outlet? Then this is the place for you. Shop in a boutique atmosphere - but at much lower prices.
Metzingen, about 150 miles from Munich, is famous for its factory outlets, attracting people from all over the country and throughout Europe. Hugo Boss, which was founded in Metzingen and still has its headquarters there, started first with its factory outlet and was soon followed by other companies (e.g. Reebock, Joop, Strenesse, Escada, Nike, Bally, Puma, Adidas, Tommy Hilfiger, Esprit and many more) who offer a range of their clothing at reduced price.
Zweibruecken, about 2 hours drive from Stuttgart, is home to Germany's biggest outlet center with more than 75 designer brands and over 75 fashion worlds at your fingertips.

And to keep your hunger at bay during a long day's shopping, Germany boasts a variety of eateries. In addition to restaurants, try snack bars and taverns. Keep in mind that prices include taxes and tips are low - 10% is an acceptable rate.
Open air markets are a delectable way to experience Germany as a local and to indulge your senses. Most cities host weekly farmer markets with food stalls that offer delicacies at unbeatable prices.
