A walk amongst bright lights and the charm of the stalls!
Apart from spending quality, reflective time with family and friends, Advent is also a time of extended shopping trips. During Advent, people love wandering around the festively decorated laneways and streets around the Frauenkirche and Royal Palace.
The shops in the inner city and large shopping centres are generally open from 10am to 8pm Monday to Saturday. In the lead-up to Christmas, the retail trade offers the very popular “gift wrapping service”, as well as more time to buy gifts, with shops remaining open until 9pm on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. There is also Advent shopping from 12pm to 6pm on two Sundays – 7 and 21 December.
But if you still have no time, or can’t be bothered with the hassle of inner-city shopping, you can also fossick for things from home. You’ll find a small selection of original gifts, unusual souvenirs, Saxon delicacies, traditional handicrafts from the region, and exclusive presents for every occasion. Order something fancy, step into our virtual shopping world – and give the gift of creativity!
