Yours truly

Find the perfect German souvenir. Although there are many souvenir shops around the center, finding authentic souvenirs is a bit challenging, if you don't know where to look. Your best bets are the local flea and crafts markets, like the Sunday Market at Boxhagener Platz and the Kunst und Trodel Markt. There are also numerous antique stores with authentic German items, and some tongue-in-cheek souvenir shops.
