Off the Beaten Path and Insider Tips

For germans who are homesick: Go to the tunnel at the central market, where they play german folk- musik; You never wanna go back home anymore!! It s my favourite trick, always works- I live here since three month! Find Andrejsala (Andrejostas street) - it is a gathering place for local youth - hippies, goths, metal lovers and similar. Great atmosphere.
