Paint question

I'm doing some last-minute repairs to woodwork prior to moving out of our flat. I'm looking for an eggshell paint. What would be the equivalent in Coop Bau & Hobby, where I'm heading, please?

Re: Paint question

Eierfarbe? Normally available around Easter

O.k. do not nail me on it and please test before use. Eggshell paint == Seidenmatt or halbmatt.
Maybe the paint used is "matt".

hochglänzend, glänzend, seidenglänzend, seidenmatt/halbmatt, matt, stumpfmatt

Go and ask for a colour palette and match from their, most of them will lend you one against a deposit.
