This store is off the main shopping area but is well signposted. It sell everything outdoors and if that's what you are looking for here is the place. Even if not shopping have a look. I have never been in a store yet that has a pool in its centre. The store is on many levels around the pool. The... More

Great place to get any sport gear you need, even have a small lake in the bottom to test boats and other water equipment. Cool architect and great choice of different sport wear, shoes etc. But everything very expansive. I was here during a great discounts season and it was still too costly.

I have been here on a number of occasions. I travel a lot and visit stores as a part of my job and also personal interest. The only store that can compare to this is Dick's in Schaumburg outside Chicago. For outside gear, clothes, books and every gadget you can think of this store is superb. I have read that... More

Cool little area to walk around, shop, have some over priced food and drinks. Honestly, you have to enjoy large crowds, malls, mall food, etc. No complaints about the place, just not my style. I would definitely recommend to keep your wallet in your front pocket here, just because there were literally thousands of people walking around the area.

If you need any outdoor gear this is the place to be. The selection is huge. There are a lot of different brand to choose from and also there is plenty of stock of each item. The selection of books is very large (unfortunately mostly in German)

A whole different concept on shopping. Capability to test/try gear in actual conditions. The best outdoor super-store I have ever been. Huge collection of everything. It's on the pricey side. Especially for some items you can get on-line from other stores, the price-tag is much more expensive. Nevertheless, the whole environment is inclining you for impulse buys and spending time...
