Ingolstadt Village , located in the heart of Bavaria, Germany's wealthiest reagion, is one of Germanys' first Designer Outlet Malls. It now boasts 90 luxury boutiques! Aigner, Calvin Klein, Feraud and Strenesse, are just a few of the many international luxury brands offered.
It is laid out in a village street style similar to many of the more popular well-known designer malls in the U.S.
We started our day of shopping at 11:45 am and decided to call it a day around 4:00 pm. Other than a quick cafe latte at San Francisco Coffee Shop, it was non-stop shopping.
Here is a list of stores and I doubt we left many untouched. Remarkably, I only made one purchase--a pair of warm PJ's for cold winter Munich nights. But you can be sure that it won't be my last trip to Ingolstadt. At up to 60% discount, I already have a list of items I'm ready to go back for. Yippie! Germany is beginning to look a lot more interesting.
Hey, Sis! We can do a lot of damage here in February. Bring your Visa or Mastercard!
Here is a list of 67 of the current 90 shops and I've put an asterik next to my personal favorites! HAPPY SHOPPING!
