I'm looking for an FLGS somewhere in Europe to visit, somewhere with a large diverse collection to browse.

I've been to Leisure Games in London, Brave New World in Koln, Damage Town in Vienna, several shops in Utrecht, and a few other smaller ones scattered around in Florence, Budapest and other places.

So what else can you recommend in Europe as an excuse for we to go somewhere?

From my travels around Europe, ok, mostly Germany

This was the biggest, and the nicest.

Hamburg. They function as an online shop, so you don't need to go there. 8 big tables to play (at least when I visited). Their store functions as their storage, so you can't browse game, you must ask for them and they'll show you.

Other ideas
- Vienna was nice, with 2 shops in close vicinity.
- I remember couple of shops in Berlin. Visited two. Okayish. Probably there was more of them.

Suprising finds:
- Was stranded in Kuopio, Finland, they did have a decent FLGS. My guess is Finland is well covered (probably ask in their forums). The beauty of the lakes and nature there was astounding.
- Leuven. Okay, maybe too close to you, and probably not that special, but a decent FLGS. For me, quite an interesting little town.
- Munich. Ha. Munich is a great city to visit, have no idea why, but I always go there to check all the galleries. They don't have FLGSs! Because they have Obletter - the biggest toy store with quite big boardgaming selection (but only kids games and family games, up to KdJ). Okay there is was one FLGS which was kinda bizarre - a comic shop full of wargames and some FFG titles.

Now that is a great looking store, and Strasbourg is always worth a visit. Thanks.

James.
