strasbourg, we are coming

tomorrow Ingrid and I am going to Strasbourg, shopping for burning man. Strasbourg.

So these are the possibilities, recently googled:

  • There is a marché aux Puces (flea market) on rue de Vieil-Hopital on Wednesday and
  • The Place des Halles, 24 place des Halles, is the main commercial center (open Mon-Fri 0900-2000 and Sat 0900-1900 2000!), with approximately 120 shops, as well as 10 restaurants and bars. The two main department stores, open daily 1000–1900, are both situated near place Kléber – Galeries Lafayettes, rue du 22 Novembre, and Printemps, 1-5 rue de la Haute Montée. FNAC, place Kléber, is also worth a visit for all things electronic and electrical.
    Designer shops can be found along rue des Orfèvres (Chanel and Yves Saint-Laurent) and rue de la Mésange (Cartier, Gucci and Hermès), with chic outlets along rue des Hallebardes and the up-and-coming rue du Vieux-Marché-aux-Poissons (Kenzo, Cerruti and Georges Rech), fast becoming lined with designer names. On the other end of the fashion scale, visitors can buy second-hand clothes, priced according to their weight, from Kilo Shop, 6 rue de la Lanterne, while traditional Alsatian costumes are for sale or hire at Maison du Costume Alsacien, 11b quai de Turckheim.
    There is an all-day food market at place Broglie on Wednesday and Friday and a flea market at place de la Grande Boucherie and rue du Vieil Hôpital on Wednesday and Saturday.linksame text, different site
  • bruno saint hilaire, rue gutemberg 8. hm, designer stuff, expensive
  • Im ganzen Altstadtgebiet ….finden sich aber auch private, individuelle Geschäfte, die Mode, Kunsthandwerk, Antiquitäten, Schmuck und Acessoires, Delikatessen, Bücher usw. anbieten. Vor allem in der Gegend um die Rue des Juifs und auf dem rechten Ufer der Ill finden sich Angebote für ein eher urbanes Publikum.
