If you like all things gold and glittery, Diamonds and other fancy things is the perfect route for you. Within only a few hundred meters you can visit at least ten different jewelry shops from innovative recycled materials to precious stones.
Sundays are perfect for a visit in a gallery or two and Creative Sunday route offers plenty of them. In between enjoy a cup of coffee, perhaps even together with a piece of cake.
In case you thought shopping is only for women, after taking the Manly shopping tour you’ll think again.
