I wish more of these furniture stores actually showed their products on their websites.
They want to get you to the store.
We get flyers delivered with the specials advertised.

The other big box furniture store is MoebelArena. They will deliver to CH and handle the VAT reclaim / payment for you.
Arena is owned by Dogern. It is quite frustrating because you might see an item you want at Arena, but you have to go to Dogern because it is in the warehouse there.

The last time I was at Dogern they had a big outlet clearance section upstairs. Floor models, etc.

Exactly. I love Konstanz, but Waldshut beats it hands down for grocery shopping by train. There's a huge Kaufland, Lidl and REWE right next to the train station.

Husband has just informed me that this weekends shopping trip to Lyon is cancelled as we have to go to Zurich and a large border crossing near Zurich. He has urgent business to attend to.

To prevent his decision ending in an early divorce I am hoping to somewhat combine our agendas and fit in a shopping trip in Germany instead of Lyon.

I have had a look at the map and Waldshut appears to be the closest large town. So what is it like for shopping? My google searches don't give away too much information. I am looking to purchase kiddies toys and maybe a Maclaren stroller too.

Anybody shopped in Waldshut? Otherwise where else should we head for?

We will be coming from Lausanne so i don't want to head too far into Germany. And tips from the locals would be much appreciated.
Shopping in Waldshut is good, but the place is boring. Konstanz is far better as it is a very nice city. Depending on the schedule of your husband you even could combine Konstanz



with short visits to Stein-am-Rhein





and/or Schaffhausen

Re: Shopping in Waldshut?

we didn't find exactly what we were looking for at Möbel Dogern, so headed to Seipp and loved the atmosphere - definitely high end but charming and cosy, it's like walking into someone's home! We'd go there again for some special piece of furniture.

still, we didn't find what we were looking for in Waldshut, and guess what, we came back to good old Switzerland and found at good old Schubiger's something much cheaper, with smiling and efficient service and free coffee

still, our trip the Germany was good to compare and get ideas, I can still recommend it

We bought our kitchen from Seipp.... and were very pleased with the service. We were assigned Martin Seipp, who has excellent English and was very attentive throughout. After some of the mediocre service received at the chain stores (e.g. Wohnwelt, Dick Kuchen, Plana etc..) it was a breath of fresh air to be dealing with a real family run firm.

Re: Shopping in Waldshut?

Experience today with bridge in Konstanz closed:
- queue DE->CH in Bad Zurzach, about 4-5km, insane
- queue DE->CH in Laufenburg, 0 (zero)

Don't ask me why though

So I delayed going to Waldshut for quite a while because of this thread. Went last week finally. What a great little town!!! I have been to Konstance a few times for shopping and dining and while Waldshut is smaller it has everything that Konstance does only in a smaller and more convenient package. Excellent town center with lots of shops, bars and restaurants and a nice little farmers market on Saturdays. Found great Greek Souvlaki pita accidentally in a nice pub in one of the alleys too.

All the big Grocery stores are just near the train station so its very easy to spend the morning down town shopping for clothes, shoes, sporting good, kitchen stuff, art stuff, etc, have a nice lunch and a beer in one of the many restaurants or pubs then hit the Grocery Store just before getting on the train.

Bottom line here is not to believe everything you read. Get out and explore!
You make it sound very nice! I will try out Waldshut, but I don't know what any shops are called. What are some department store names in Germany or other big shops that are near the Waldshut train station?

Re: Shopping in Waldshut?

As some of you already know, the bridge over Rhein river to Waldshut is closed between the 30th of June until the 22nd of September due road-works. You can still go shopping using alternative route and cross another bridge via Rheinheim near Bad Zurzach.

More info on shopping and allowed limits can be found in the flier below:

http://www.tiengen.de/tl_files/tieng...enz%202014.pdf

On my last two visits, I never managed to get a custom stamp though.

Re: Shopping in Waldshut?

Only 1.5 weeks more to go before it will be opened again. Cannot wait in excitement!

First comes first, visit to steakhouse for 400g:

or Burger King and Subway!

Re: Shopping in Waldshut?

Speaking of well kept secrets: if you go by car, I cannot recommend this restaurant enough: http://www.bad-bruckhaus.com/ It's in Gurtweil, between Waldshut and Tiengen and probably has the tastiest food I've ever eaten.

And maybe a not-so-well-kept secret, if strolling through the old town, stop at Kaffehaus Albrecht around midday and ask for fresh cremeschnitte...absolutely amazing!

Re: Shopping in Waldshut?

There are no sushi or chinese restaurants in Waldshut worth mentioning. Really, just avoid the place!

Re: Shopping in Waldshut?

Ok. Listen everyone the shopping in WT sucks big time which results in long queues at the border, there is absolutely absolutely nothing worth seeing and the Black Forest is still very far away. Furniture shops and others are simply waste of your time. And don't even think about going to restaurants they're all equally bad - check other members reviews above Trust me there are better towns to visit out there.

Is the whole symphony about right ...

Re: Shopping in Waldshut?

There is, but I'll pass on this online music shop recommendation to you. They had great prices, delivered really quickly and sorted out taking off taxes for me without any problems.
