Dear Aviator,

Who doesn’t like shopping to upgrade one’s closet and to stay fashionable? It is even more fun when you can get exclusive designer pieces at reduced prices. You can find the ultimate outlet shopping experiences in Germany. The Outletcity Metzingen close to Stuttgart is where I visited recently.

The “City of Shopping” makes the heart of every fashion lover and bargain-hunters beat faster. During multiple lockdowns we spent more time at home and it didn’t seem necessary to buy new clothing. Since some travel restrictions have been lifted and we can live a “normal” life again, it definitely makes sense to renew or update our wardrobe again.

 Be sure to read the blog post carefully, because I have managed to organize a VIP shopping code for you, which is valid until the end of this year. I will also let you know how you can fly for free.

The Outlet City Metzingen History

The city of Metzingen has a long-lasting history of fashion. Following industrialization, different textile factories were built in Metzingen. Hugo Boss, which was founded in Metzingen and still has its headquarters there, opened its factory outlet in 1972 and was soon followed by other famous companies. 

What Does Outlet Mean?

You can expect at least 30% off the retail price. In The Outletcity you will sometimes find price reductions up to 70%.

Which Stores Can You Expect?

The Outletcity Metzingen offers around 130 premium and luxury brands. Primarily you will find fashion brands, but also stores which offer beauty, jewellery and various lifestyle products. To name some of my favourite fashion brands: Versace, Dolce&Gabbana, Hugo Boss, Michael Kors, Schiesser, Falke and Karl Lagerfeld. You can be certain that everyone in the family will find a store which suits his/her style and taste.

What Makes Outletcity Metzingen So Special? 

It is Europe’s biggest outlet with over 130 stores of premium and luxury brands. I really like the puristic and minimalistic architecture of the buildings. It is extraordinary that the stores are not separated from the city, they are part of the city enhancing the shopping experience. I have never seen anything like this before. The locals live right next to Gucci, Prada and Underamour and co.

How Much Time Should You Plan?

It certainly depends on how much you want to shop. I definitely recommend you to plan a full day so you have enough time to visit all the stores you like. In the Outletcity app you will find a list of all brands and their location. I “hearted” the stores I wanted to visit to have a better overview.
