Five shopping tips from our new city guides

Where can you go in Berlin, Copenhagen, Paris, Vienna and Porto  shopping for particularly cool things?

For our city guides, we have combed through some shops and put together our favorite shopping tips for you. Our five sustainable shopping tips:

1. Berlin: 

Of course we recommend it in the capital “GoodBuy Store” from our dear colleagues. The shop is located in the middle of the trendy Friedrichshain district on a busy corner. The light-flooded shop with the most beautiful parquet floor in the city has a large selection of books, gifts, toys and cosmetic products that are fair and sustainable. But you can also get food like pasta, tea and chocolate here. The friendly staff are happy to give tips for gifts and, if asked, will also tell you more about the products, which are very carefully curated. Of course, there is also an online shop for all non-Berlin residents.

One of the largest and most beautiful flea markets in the world is the “Flea market“ in the 18th arrondissement. This flea market has been around for over a hundred years and you can find everything here - especially clothes, records, books, delicacies and valuable antiques. The market has over 3000 stalls and is divided into different parts. Every year, over ten million visitors supposedly come to this place to browse.

The "Bootik 54“ is a great place for unusual second-hand fashion and colorful accessories. In addition to sunglasses, hats and retro bags, there is a large selection of vintage jeans and cool band shirts. But also some funny finds from the 80s and wonderfully flashy jogging suits.
