We stopped in here after hearing about it from a few different people. The store is certainly unique and a fun stop along our way, but I wouldn't make a special trip for it. The store is very small and crowded and if too many...More

Within the strange building with mannequin-posed windows, one will find a candy adventure. All candies and treats are represented, but is the candy masters Marion and Jürgen Brecht that is the attraction! Plan plenty of time to visit, as the line is normally long. But...More
