On most trips to Germany, I stay in a small village outside Augsburg. It's called Horgau, and the Flairhotel Schwarzen Reiter is my hotel of choice. Great Gasthof owned for generations by the family Platzer. It is my home in Germany.

In Augsburg, I found the perfect place to experience and purchase fragrances. It is the Parfümerie Naegele and can be found at Philippine-Welser-Str. 26 in downtown Augsburg. Of course, there is the ever-present Douglas store, but Naegele has the niche houses that I enjoy. Please give this parfumerie a try if you find yourself in Augsburg.
