Metzingen is known as the captial of German outlet stores. The town is near Stuttgart (just over 200km from Munich) and is home to factory outlet stores for Hugo Boss, Ralf Lauren, Nike, Levi's, Escada, Tommy Hilfiger, Esprit, Pepe Jeans and many more.
A full list of the outlets and lots more information can be found at the website of Outlet City.
Went over there on Saturday and had a look around. From what I saw, the Hugo Boss store appears to be the biggest of them all. This is probably due to the head-quarters of Boss being in the town. Within that store the women's section is not overly big, but for men there is a pretty great selection of stuff, especially if you are in the market for a suit or two.
The place is well worth a visit and you can pick up some great bargains. Of course it's easy to spend more at a factory outlet because stuff is cheaper, but it's stuff that you wouldn't have bought otherwise. Assuming you either have good will-power when it comes to parting with your cash or just don't care then you're likely to be quite happy.
Wasn't really sure where to put this since it's something which might be of interest to people is various parts of Germany. I know this place has been mentioned a few times on TT, but thought it deserved a thread title of its own if anyone is searching for it.
