Route
“While lower Berger Straße attracts shoppers with cafés, bars and quaint boutiques, the middle part features standard products needed to meet day-to-day demands. Upper Berger Straße, meanwhile, features a variety of traditional bars and restaurants – great places for taking some rest from exhausting retail activities.”
