I am traveling to Magdeburg for a few days and would like to know if it is possible to purchase the "Weatherhouses" that are typical to the southwest of Germany? Unfortunately I do not have time to make a trip to the black forest. Any help would be appreciated.
I've visited Magdeburg twice fairly recently but I can't say I have ever seen these on sale in the shops there - but then I wasn't looking for them. My hosts who have lived in Magdeburg for years, never mentioned them as a typical souvenir of the area either.
Maybe someone who lives locally will be able to offer you more help though.
> them as a typical souvenir of the area either.
Something they are not for sure.
They can be found outside their home region in tourist souvenir shops (e.g. in Munich or Berlin). The question is if Magdeburg is touristic enough for such a shop.
Usually I've seen the little weather houses being sold in most major German cities, at either souvenir stands in the airport or the main train stations...
