Hi everyone. Can anyone recommend " physical stores " in/around Dusseldorf/Germany where we can find and buy Diamine German Exclusive inks these days in a very short visit/stop there?

Many thanks in advance.

Diamine isn't widely stocked around here. Online everywhere? Sure.  In brick and mortar? I'm in NRW and the only place I've ever seen them was at Ortloff in Cologne, and the selection there was really, really limited (shimmering inks only, I think, that was about 4 years ago).  In Dusseldorf specifically I think there's a MB shop and a shop called Franzen that has some fountain pen stuff, but I'm sure the former doesn't stock Diamine (obviously) and I'm not sure if the latter does, either.  Might not hurt to stop by and check it out though if you're in the area :)

From the Diamine website:


Ortloff GmbH

Zeppelinstrasse 4
Koln (Cologne)


Weyers-Kaatzer GmbH & Co. KG
Kleinmarschierstr. 8-16,
Am Dom


Nothing in Dusseldorf, these are the two closest stores nearby and of course both cities are well worth a visit. Diamine isn't that widespread outside the UK.

Suggest ordering on-line and having it shipped to your hotel in Dusseldorf. Tell that hotel to hold the package for you...they will.


You will have more chance to get Pelikan Edelstein or MB or Graf vFC inks, than Diamine outside of Glitter ink.

My B&M started carrying Diamine Glitter ink with in the last two years. No other Diamine inks.

German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.
