Are you looking for the latest perfume from Roberto Cavalli, something alluring for the evening or perhaps a special accessory for the home?
The possibilities in Baden-Baden’s popular pedestrian precinct are as diverse and varied as the town itself.
A breath away from the Kurhaus gardens and the River Oos, the "Lange Straße" winds its way from Hindenburgplatz to Leopoldsplatz and wonderfully unites the almost Mediterranean-styled lassaiz-faire of the world-famous spa town with the bustle of a modern shopping street. It is the pulsating heart of the shopping town of Baden-Baden, the favoured street for strolling and window shopping for young and old, rich and poor, two-legged and four-legged.
There is something for everyone here. Stylish boutiques present designer fashion from Salvatore Ferragamo and Féraud, smart, sporty polo shirts from Lacoste, trendy bags from Longchamp and fine lingerie from Palmers.
Quality and exclusivity is not only limited to the fashion sector, the taste specialists in the pedestrian precinct also set their standards high. This includes coffee varieties of the finest from a small coffee roasting business along with international tea specialities and soft temptations from the town’s chocolatiers.
Said to be a royal pleasure to consume, and judging by its name who could disagree, the famous royal jelly, the secretion fed to the queen larvae, is readily acclaimed as being a super medicine. Super too is that it can be purchased in Baden-Baden’s pedestrian precinct – in its pure form, as a cream, in capsules or as drinking ampoules. The speciality has its price, but, then again, so too do all specialities. Some view a good bottle of wine as being the right medicine for them – and there is, no doubt, a certain degree of truth in this too. Therefore, how about an exquisite "Chateau Petrus" from the year 2000 in the mid, four-digit euro range for a 0.75 litre bottle?
This, by the way, also applies to the countless cafés and ice-cream parlours that turn the Baden-Baden pedestrian precinct into the ultimate open-air experience.
If at the end of your shopping spree the agony of having to constantly choose from the wide variety has left its mark, you will also find the perfect offer for this in the pedestrian precinct.
