You can create your own perfume, or just buy a perfume. Its traditional amd also shows a little of the old history. The building is old and at full hour there is always some music and puppets above the front door (musical clock).

By coincidence I realised that eau de cologne originated there. This is fancy shop with tons of variations of 4711. Ever since you are there you buy some. Sales people are not very friendly. They serve you with cold German superiority. As if my euros...More
