'Hans travels around the world, always looking for new retail and exciting places to be. Join him and share his thoughts and likes.'

I am really excited to share my experiences with you today. Come and explore with me.
The way I look at things, the way I experience exciting new retail on the street.
I hope it will help you to look at things in a different way and rethink the environment that is needed for retailers to stay ahead of the game. Get inspired!
Together we are changing retail!

Young and fashionable Berlin

Berlin is one of the best shopping cities of Europe. There is always something new to discover... The fun part is that Berlin doesn’t disclose its retail treasures all at once: you really have to go treasure hunting.

Addicted to New York

Since 1974... I have lived in New York, I worked in New York, and I feasted my eyes on everything I saw. To be honest, I got obsessed with the city and think I’ll never get over it.
