{ Luftschloss }

This store is a real castle in the air, an insider tip for snatching that special gift. Extraordinary, funny, selected and individually – since nearly 25 years this is a highlight for shopping victims. The world of the owner is motley and cheerful, sometimes kitschy but – so what? Above all it’s one: individuall and filled with imagination. A whiff of nostalgia fans in items like edelweiss brooches, the Little Red Riding Hood with the wolf in the fairy tale forest, the cuckoo clock at the wall, lots of snowstorm globes and Bambi from Disneyland. All these pretty little things are too pity to get dusty behind cupboard doors, so the owner displayed them in this fancy store to share them for all looking for that perfect treasure.Rothenburg 37 | 48143 Münster  | Phone: 0251 40940
