A classic gift for Mum is a bottle of eau de cologne, the not terribly sophisticated but refreshing perfume created – and still being produced – in, yes, Cologne. The most famous brand is 4711, named after the number of the house where it was invented, which now houses this glossy shop. Note the cutesy carillon on the facade with characters from Prussian lore parading hourly from 9am to 9pm.
