Together with her husband Rolf, she sold shrill party outfits and vinyl and leather fiddles in the Kiez boutique "Easy Rider" for over thirty years. In comparison, the range of goods offered by the shops in the Schanzenviertel, which Inge Gräfin von Hardenberg runs today, is rather neat.
At Hardenberg in Schanzenstraße 79, the always good-humoured salespeople bring rustic, often nordic fashion, to the table. Flannel shirts and cuddly winter jackets by Suit hang under the large chandelier in bright rooms. You can try shoes by Clarks or sneakers by Converse with Lee's jeans. The Schanzenshop, originally one of the few pure boys' shops to be launched, now also has a clearly laid out range of knitwear, shoes and jeans for girls.
