So begins another spring,
Green leaves and of berries,
Chiff-chaff eggs are painted by
Mother bird eating cherries.

In the misty tangled sky
Fast a wind is blowing,
In the new-born rabbit’s heart
River life is flowing.
 – Donovan, Lullaby of Spring

Whoever conceived the spring merchandising display at Gebr Heinemann’s main Travel Value & Duty Free store at Hamburg airport has created that rarest of sights – a duty free store that actually lifts the spirits (I’m not talking Johnnie Walker or Jägermeister here).

It’s brighter than the sunniest Hanseatic spring day and more colourful even than some of the brilliant Easter Eggs on promotion for this weekend’s big holiday season.  Heck, you practically need to go and buy some Ray-Bans from the nearby Heinemann accessories offer to avoid the glare here but after the misery of a long, cold winter, it’s all the better for it.

Great Spring Deals? Definitely. Not just the products but the store itself.
